FedEx Billing Web Services or Api

Hello,

Does anyone know of any Fedex web services or api's that allow me to programatically retrieve my billing information?  I have used their web services and api's to retrieve shipping quotes or estimates.  I can't seem to find a good automated way to retrieve my FedEx billing info. Currently to grab my billing information from them through their gui website interface has been very tedious, time consuming and non automated and requires logins, passwords, multiple pages to sift through, non consistent download formats.  I really would like to have api or web service access to my bills so that I could see how much we were charged by tracking number.
Thank you
Thanks!
Shawn

Have you contacted FedEx yet to check on their options?  I don't know of any Web Service or API method for bills, but do know that they offer EDI options where you will be given an electronic mailbox that will house an EDI or CSV file with your billing data.  You can then automate the retrieval of that file and parse it out as you need through some code.

Check out this link for more details on FedEx's EDI options - http://www.fedex.com/us/account/invhome/edi.html?link=4

Thank you for responding. I called them in the past but am not sure I got a gold of the correct Dept. We are out of the office this week so I will need to research the options you suggested when I return home. Thanks!

Thank you for the Edi suggestion.  We were really hoping for an api access or web service access, but when I called FedEx they apparently don't have that.  I am not sure edi will be a great solution for us, but it definately is a solution and we appreciate the info and the link.  It looks like we are going to need to schedule reports that run weekly and then import them into our system.
