    So I've been tasked with implementing FedEx Freight shipping options for a Sitefinity ecommerce site.  After much discussion with Telerik support, I learned that freight shipping required a newer version of the FedEx API than the one provided by default with Sitefinity, and that I would have to implement a new shipping provider to make use of it.

    The problem that I have been running into with this approach is that the shippingInputData argument being passed into the GetServiceRates method seems to be missing quite a bit of the information about the shipment.

    Specifically, the only properties that seem to be populated are ShipToZip, ShipFromZip, and TotalWeight.  Other properties such as ShipToCity, ShipFromCity, etc., are all null.  

    Perhaps the default FedEx services provided by Sitefinity only required the zip code, but it appears that FedEx freight will require the other values (based on the error codes I've been getting back from the FedEx API).

    Has anyone else encountered this issue with the shippingInputData?  If so, is there a fix, or is this a bug a Sitefinity?

    I noticed that my colleague has replied in the ticket. The mentioned properties are not included indeed, however, the carorder is being passed as well and everything needed can be retrieved from that object.
