- Step 1 – Create a shipment – Open up the FedEx program and click to create a shipment from the main menu bar.

Click on the appropriate one if you would also like to create a return label, or click on the Choose Shipping Method to progress to selecting the type of FedEx shipping you want.
- Step 5 – Select shipping and print the label – if you progress directly to the shipping option you will be offered several choices for shipping services from FedEx.
