"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can set those alerts when you schedule the shipping from the website.

As for knowing exactly when the package gets picked up, it all depends on the FedEx person. If he scans it immediately then of course you will get an accurate time, if not then you won't see an update till he gets back to the hub at night.

Thanks Edward.  Does the package tracking API contain a status that would indicate whether the package was picked up?
Edward PamiasTeam Lead RRS DeskCommented:
Yes it does. I was checking one of my package statuses and it has picked up.
