The Pre-Notification API allows customer applications to inform UPS operations of dangerous goods shipments that have been processed and will enter the UPS transportation network prior to an upload of manifest information at the end of the day. This will assist in improved handling and fewer delays for dangerous goods shipments. The Pre-Notification API can be used in conjunction with other APIs after a dangerous goods shipment has been processed.
Finally, the use of this API will be required for customers who have a dangerous goods contract and are shipping cargo quantities of dangerous goods or are shipping dangerous goods via road transport in Europe (European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road or ADR).
In addition, custom code that adapts your application's business logic and data to the API must be developed in order to integrate this API's functionality into your business systems.
