With the Future Date Processing feature, you can process a shipment with a pickup date up to 183 calendar days in the future.
Future Date Processing slightly changes the way you process and transmit shipping information. These changes include:
Pickup Date Mode - Turn on Future Date Processing by going to the Tools tab, System Preferences, and selecting the Shipping tab. Select the Manually Select Pickup Dates check box under Pickup Date Selection.
Active Pickup Date - Select an active pickup date on which your shipments are grouped in the Shipment History window. You must select this date each time you start UPS WorldShip and each time you run End of Day. The active pickup date always appears on the title bar at the top of the WorldShip® window.
Process Shipments - As you process shipments, they are listed under Pending Pickup by the active pickup date in the Shipment History window. To begin processing shipments for a different day, go to the Home tab in the Shipping window, select Pickup Information, and Select Active Pickup Date. Select another active pickup date.
To change the Active Pickup Date for a pending shipment, select the shipment in the Shipment History window, go to the Home tab, select Pickup Date, and Change Pickup Date.
End of Day Process - Select the Pending Pickup group for the End of Day process. After running End of Day Active Pickup from the Home tab, select an active pickup date for your next group of shipments.
