This way the store owners can easily create shipping labels for their orders and then print them in bulk using WooCommerce FedEx Shipping plugin.
Volumetric Weight option under Weight Based Packing
Most of the WooCommerce store owners prefer to use the Weight Based Packing where the products are packed based on their weight. However, in special cases, where the product weighs less and occupies more space, FedEx calculates the shipping rates based on the volumetric weight of the products. Now WooCommerce FedEx Shipping plugin will help you check whether the product requires packing based on the volumetric weight or not. By enabling the following option, the plugin will first check and compare the actual weight and the volumetric weight.
The larger quantity will decide the shipping rates as well as the packaging for the product.
Send Shipping Label to Shipper and Customers
Another feature that customers required was the ability to send the shipping labels to the shipper and also to their customers. Till now there was not an option to send the shipping labels to both the customers as well as the shipper. However, the option below allows you to choose among the Shipper, Customer or both.
Once selected, as soon as the order is marked as Complete, the shipping label will be sent to both the shipper as well as the customers.
OP900 FedEx Form

With this new release, WooCommerce FedEx Shipping plugin will support and let the store owners print OP900 Form for any dangerous goods, automatically.
