World Ease Tab in the Shipper Editor Window

The World Ease tab allows you to select default settings for World Ease commodity import, specify the number of World Ease documents to print, specify factors to determine how World Ease child shipments are aggregated, and specify factors to determine how World Ease master shipments are created.

Note: This tab appears only if you have a contract for UPS World Ease.

Using the World Ease tab:

  1. Select the default settings for a World Ease commodity import.

  2. Select the Always Import Commodities check box if you want UPS WorldShip to always select the Import Commodities check box on the Documents tab for this shipper. Clear this check box if you do not want WorldShip to select the Import Commodities check box on the Document tab for this shipper.

Your choice appears as the default in the Master Shipment window that appears if you attempt to close out master shipments with child shipments that are missing commodity information. If you do not know the path name of the file, click the Browse button and select the file from your directories.

  4. Click the down arrow in the Reference Number box and select the Reference Number that you want as the key field for import. Your choice appears as the default in the Master Shipment window that appears if you attempt to close out master shipments with child shipments that are missing commodity information.

  5. To aggregate by Handling Charge, select the Handling Charge check box. If you do not select this check box, child shipments with a Handling Charge are aggregated even if each child shipment has a different Handling Charge; the Handling Charge from the existing child shipment overwrites the Handling Charge from the new child shipment.
