Run End of Day Process for UPS SurePost Shipments

Note: UPS SurePost is available only if you have a contract for this service.

You must run the End of Day process for each Pending Pickup group (under UPS Pickups in the Shipment History window). This process transmits your shipment data to UPS and prints the reports required by your UPS driver.

To run the End of Day process:

  1. If Future Date Processing is on, select the Pending Pickup group (under UPS Pickups in the Shipment History window) for which you want to run the End of Day process. If Future Date Processing is off, go to step 2.

  2. Click the End of Day button. The End of Day Processing window appears and asks, "Are you ready to close today’s shipping and send the shipment information to UPS?"

    Tip:
    If Future Date Processing is on, this window asks, "Are you ready to close the pickup dated MM/DD/YYYY and send the shipment information to UPS?"

  3. Click the Yes button. The reports print and the shipment data transmits for the Pending Pickup group you selected. After the transmission, the Shipment History window appears.

    Tip:
    If Future Date Processing is on, the Select Active Pickup Date window appears. Click the down arrow, select the active pickup date, and click the OK button. The Shipment History window appears.

  4. Make sure the shipment data from the End of Day process is identified, by date and time, under UPS Pickups in the Shipment History window.

  5. Select the date and time entry under UPS Pickups and make sure the status bar shows the data was sent. If the "Data Not Sent" message appears on the status bar and "NOT SENT" appears in red next to the date and time, you need to resend the data. See Resend Data to UPS.

  6. Process your reports. See Print the End of Day Reports.

Note: If you process additional shipments on a day for which you have already run the End of Day process, simply repeat the process to transmit your shipment data to UPS and print the reports. Remember to give your UPS driver all the reports generated for the day’s shipments (one set for each End of Day process).
