Welcome to the WorldShip® Message Center. This area will be used to alert you to features and functionality that can improve your WorldShip experience, including new features for WorldShip. When there is a new message, the Message Center envelope on the ribbon will have an orange exclamation point to direct you here.
This document contains:
Help reduce “Where is my package?” calls and returns due to non-delivery with automated Day Before Delivery alerts. The alerts are free for shippers and receivers and are sent to delivery recipients one day prior to the expected delivery date. In the US, alerts are sent only to recipients of residential packages.
For shippers that manage chemical tables through an external database or by import/export mappings, new fields required for WorldShip 2017 must be added before Dangerous Goods shipments can be completed.
Properly managing customer data is a high priority for UPS, and we work closely with our customers to ensure that critical information is transferred over the Internet using the most current data security standards.
With rapid changes to security requirements, we want to keep you informed of upgrades that will be required in the near future. Your ability to use all of our applications that best meet your business needs is important to us.
Please follow the instructions below for each WorldShip system to ensure that your systems are up to date.

This will impact web transactions for UPS Smart Pickup® (U.S. only) Air Freight, Ground Freight and other ups.com transactions such as tracking. This will not impact your End of Day processing of small package shipments.
To enable TLS 1.2 in commonly used browsers, follow these steps:
If you have any technical questions or concerns, please call 1-888-553-1118 in the United States or your local country or territory support number..
WorldShip 2017 will not be supported on Microsoft Windows® Vista. In order to upgrade, your computer must be running either Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10.
