Ordering Information

Where FedEx must be used because UPS cannot provide the specific requirement, the P-Card will be used as the payment method. We recommend establishing a new FedEx account. You may need assistance from Jennifer Henderson, FedEx Worldwide Account Manager, to update the billing method to P-Card or to establish a FedEx online profile.

Jennifer Henderson can be reached at or (773) 332-2608.

P-Card Holders needing to establish a new FedEx account and receive negotiated rates must complete all of the following steps:

  1. Complete and submit the Request for Exception form
  2. Have a valid University P-Card
  3. Complete the FedEx account request form and send it to .  The account will be emailed to you.
  4. Once you receive the account, create a FedEx online login ID and password at and register the account.
  5. Sign up for FedEx Billing Online Plus - allows the account holder to review and dispute charges before they are paid.  FedEx Billing Online Plus will show as a summary billing line for each payment on your P-Card statement.

Any FedEx small package invoices that are not billed to a specific account and/or were not automatically billed to a P-Card can be paid using a P-Card by calling 800-GO-FedEx (800-463-3339).  Use expense type Freight/Shipping. Alternately, a non-PO voucher can be used to pay a one-time FedEx invoice only if the department does not have a P-Card established.

    FedEx Freight:
    Freight invoices under $5,000 should be paid via P-Card.  Invoices over $5,000 should be paid by entering an ePro requisition (Purchase Order), leave the vendor ID blank and choose Todd Coon (tcoon) as the buyer.
