Specify Goods Details for the SLI

When processing an international shipment, you may need to specify details about its contents (the goods) for export purposes. Before you can specify goods details for the Shipper's Letter of Instruction (SLI), you must select the Print SLI check box under Air Freight on the Freight tab in the Shipper Editor window.

To complete the SLI information:

  1. Click the Documents tab in the Shipping window.

  2. Click the SLI tab on the Documents tab.

  3. If you select the Print SLI check box, UPS WorldShip validates all required fields and prints the SLI. If you clear this check box, WorldShip validates all required fields if you enter at least one required field, but will not print the SLI.

  4. On the SLI tab:

  5. Select the Ultimate Consignee Same as Ship To check box if the ultimate consignee is the same as the receiver (the person or company receiving the shipment), or clear this check box if they are different. The Ultimate Consignee Address window appears. After you provide the ultimate consignee information, the ... button appears on the SLI tab. Click the ... button to edit the ultimate consignee information.

  6. Select the Intermediate Consignee check box as needed. The Intermediate Consignee Address window appears. After you provide the intermediate consignee information, the ... button appears on the SLI tab. Click the ... button to edit the intermediate consignee information.

  7. Click the down arrow in the Routed Transaction box and select Yes or No. Yes means that the foreign principal party in interest authorizes a US forwarding or other agent to facilitate export of items from the US.

  8. Click the down arrow in the Parties to Transaction box and select an item. Related means the shipper and ultimate receiver are with the same company; Non-Related means they are with different companies.

    You cannot select the Certificate of Origin, Banking (Sight Draft), and Export License under both Attached and To Be Prepared.
