Create and Print Shipping Labels

You can prepare shipping labels for domestic and international shipments from the convenience of any device connected to the internet.

Required Labels for Domestic Air

Your domestic shipments using air services require that you use a label printed from an automated shipping system (like UPS.com) or a UPS Air Shipping Document. The ASD combines your address label, tracking label and shipping record into one form. Specific ASDs are available for:

UPS Next Day Air® Early
UPS Next Day Air (can be used for UPS Worldwide ExpressSM)
UPS Next Day Air Saver
UPS 2nd Day Air A.M.®
UPS 2nd Day Air®

You can order ASDs online on the UPS Supplies page and you'll find detailed preparation instructions on the reverse side of each ASD to help you complete the form correctly.
