Subscribers to Nextel Online, a wireless service from Nextel Communications Inc., can now view the shipping status of their packages with FedEx Express and FedEx Ground through a wireless website dedicated to mobile package-tracking and drop-off services.

"The addition of FedEx services to our wireless portal is a strong enhancement to the wireless business services available to our subscribers," said Tim Dunne, vp, business development at Nextel.
