FedEx Dangerous Goods/Hazardous Materials Shipments

You can ship Dangerous Goods shipments with FedEx Express and Hazardous Materials shipments with FedEx Ground.

Required Forms

FedEx requires the following forms when shipping Hazardous Materials/Dangerous Goods. They can be set up in Printing Profiles. See Enable HazMat/DG Documents for more information.

  • FedEx Express requires the Shippers Declaration for Dangerous Goods.
  • FedEx Ground requires the FedEx HazMat Certificate and the FedEx Ground HazMat Shipping Form (OP900)

Preferences Setup

Another setting that affects how Hazardous Materials detail is populated when shipping is the Hazardous Materials Preference that, when checked, allows StarShip to control the Hazardous Materials option and assign the Profile for a package based on its line items. This setting can be found in Preferences > Preferences > Hazardous Materials Preferences.

Process a Shipment

The following steps show you how to process a Hazardous Materials/Dangerous Goods shipment for FedEx.

Select Rate/Ship from the top menu. Select the source document you want to ship and click the Create Shipment button.

Select the FedEx Express or FedEx Ground Service.

You can view a Hazardous Materials or Dangerous Goods line item by clicking the Edit button in the Line Items section.

View Line Items

When line items that are designated as Hazardous are on the shipment, Hazardous Materials information is automatically populated. The Hazardous option is checked and the HazMat Profile populated (if applicable).

Item Details

You can also check the Hazardous Materials option manually at the package level under Packaging or the Dangerous Goods option under Package Details, as well as assign a predefined Hazardous Materials Profile.
