1Z Tracking Number

A unique number that identifies a UPS Small Package child shipment in a Trade Direct consolidated movement or a UPS package in a non-Trade Direct shipment. This number is assigned by UPS to each shipment or package and can be used to track a child shipment as it moves through the UPS system to its destination.

Active Workstation

Note: This term is used to describe the status of a workgroup workstation.

A workstation that is currently running UPS WorldShip. The Workstations window shows the status for all workgroup workstations.

Actual Weight

The weight of a package that you enter.

Address Only Invoice

The Address Only Invoice simply declares the country/territory of export and the country/territory of import.

UPS WorldShip can print Address Only Invoices as needed. See Prepare Invoices for Return Services Shipments.

AESDirect

A free Internet-based system sponsored by the US Census Bureau. Use AES to electronically file the Electronic Export Information (EEI) to the US Customs Service's AES, which captures and stores US export statistical data.

Aggregation

A method of consolidating multiple shipments to the same consignee into a single shipment. This consolidation occurs during the End of Day process, or if you are aggregating child shipments in a UPS World Ease shipment, the aggregation occurs during shipment processing (that is, when you click the Process Child Shipment button).

The following fields must match exactly for aggregation:

Notes:

Air Freight

Air Freight refers to the mode of transportation. It offers regional, interregional, and specialty solutions in many origins and destinations worldwide.

Air Freight Shipper

A UPS customer allowed to ship Air Freight shipments. This shipper is based on origin and destination and not on whether the shipper has an Air Freight House Account.

The two types of Air Freight shippers are:

Airport Code

The Airport Code box appears on the Ship To and Ship From tabs for Air Freight shipments. In each box, click the down arrow to display a list of airport codes based on the destination country and select the appropriate code for the Air Freight shipment.

Alternate Exchange Rate and Currency

UPS WorldShip displays shipment costs based on the default currency and country of origin. Use the Shipper Editor to change the currency for a specific shipper, whereby any windows that display shipment costs for that shipper reflect the alternate rate and currency. See Rating Preferences Tab in the Shipper Editor Window.

The exchange rate is the ratio at which the default currency in the country of origin is exchanged for another currency, which you specify in the Alternate Currency box.

To help you determine the currency used to display shipment costs for a particular shipper:

Authorized Shipping Outlet

An independently owned shipping service center where you can ship your packages/shipments via UPS. Shipping rates vary.

Automated Export System (AES)

A free Internet-based system sponsored by the US Census Bureau. Use AES to electronically file the Electronic Export Information (EEI) to the US Customs Service's AES, which captures and stores US export statistical data.

Bill of Lading

The first document that begins the commercial shipping cycle. This document shows such information as the origin of the shipment, the shipment destination, a description of the freight, the number of pieces, the number of handling units, and the weight.

Its purposes include:

You can produce the following types of bill of lading documents:

Trade Direct

Ground Freight

Billable Weight

The greater of the actual weight and the dimensional weight.

TESTBillable Weight

The greater of the actual weight and the dimensional weight.

Canadian Certificate of Origin (CO)

The Canadian Certificate of Origin (CO) authenticates the national origin of the merchandise and is required by customs authorities at the time of importation. The shipper signs the Canadian CO, and depending on the destination country, certification by a local chamber of commerce or board of trade, notarization, and even issuance of a visa by a resident foreign consulate may also be required. The Canadian CO may be required to verify origin because of treaty arrangements, varying duty rates based on the origin of the goods, or most-favored-nation treatment that may benefit goods of Canadian origin. Certain countries may also use the Canadian CO for exchange rate purposes.

Charge Back Code

An identifier to specify the department, division, or other business unit in your company to be charged for shipping the package you are processing.

Child Shipment

There are two types of Trade Direct child shipments:

Child Shipment Invoice

This document declares the contents of your child shipment, in appropriate format, to customs in both the country of export and the country of import.

Place the Child Shipment Invoice inside the Doc Box of the master shipment. See Assemble Master Shipments with Appropriate Documentation.

Collect on Delivery (COD) Service Fee

The amount UPS charges to provide the COD service. It does not include the cost of any other options, such as Declared Value, nor does it include the value of the COD itself.

Commercial Invoice

The Commercial Invoice is used for import control, valuation, and duty determination. The document identifies the commodities (or goods) being shipped and their values.

A Commercial Invoice is required on all nondocument shipments containing goods and is not required for document shipments.

Provided all information needed to complete a Commercial Invoice is present, use one of the following methods to process a Commercial Invoice using UPS WorldShip:

Notes:

Connection Assistant

A "wizard" or guide to help you import information into UPS WorldShip from another data source or application or export information from WorldShip to another data source or application. This information can be address, commodity, customer ID list, reference number and qualifier, or shipment data.

Consolidated Invoice Detail

The shipper has the option of creating a Consolidated Invoice Detail report (CID) only for a UPS World Ease master shipment. The CID will be sent electronically if you have a paperless contract. If you require a hard copy of the CID, it will automatically print if you have a 041 WorldEase Contract or select Print copy of Paperless Documents. The report can also be reprinted from history.

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

This report shows the following:

Place this report in the documentation pouch on the Doc Box of the master shipment. See Assemble Master Shipments with Appropriate Documentation. If you do not use a packing slip or a manifest, you can duplicate this report and place it in the Doc Box.

Consolidated Movement

A group of child shipments. After picking up or receiving your shipments, UPS consolidates your shipments into one movement, transports the movement to the destination country, and provides customs clearance. After reaching the destination country, the consolidated movement is separated into individual shipments and those shipments are dropped into either the UPS Small package or the LTL/TL (see Notes) network and delivered directly to the ultimate consignees.

Notes:

Container Freight Station (CFS)

A facility where freight shipments are consolidated or de-consolidated and staged between transport legs. A CFS is typically located in proximity to an ocean, port, or airport, where cargo containers are transported to and from.

UPS assigns the following CFSs to each approved Trade Direct shipper:

Controlled Territory

Controlled territories can include countries experiencing internal strife, or those that have strained relations with the United States. These countries are currently Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria (see Syria Note below). Consult the federal government’s Export Administration Regulations if you have questions about a specific territory.

Note: Goods shipped to controlled territories require more export documents, usually an Electronic Export Information (EEI) for all nondocument and document shipments (except those containing normal business or personal information) and possibly an export license.

Syria Note: UPS will not process shipments from the US and Americas Region countries to Syria; however, shipments from European and Asia Pacific Region origins to Syria will be processed.

Customs Declaration CN 22

A form required on all international UPS Mail Innovations and UPS SurePost shipments that is the USPS equivalent to a Commercial Invoice. The form identifies the commodities (or goods) being shipped and their values.

UPS WorldShip can print the Customs Declaration CN 22 as needed. See Provide International Documentation Info for UPS Mail Innovations Shipments or Provide International Documentation Info for UPS SurePost Shipments.

Notes:

Customs Value

The total invoice amount (excluding discounts, freight, insurance, and other charges) for an international shipment. This amount must be equal to the Invoice line total of the shipment.

Enter the purchase price of the merchandise being shipped in the currency of the purchase. If the merchandise is not shipped pursuant to a purchase agreement (e.g., consignment sales), enter the value of similar or identical merchandise exported to the destination country around the same time.

Consignee Label

Prints in addition to the shipment label, but does not replace the shipment label. This label can be customized using the Custom Label Editor.

Notes:

Daily Shipment Detail Report

This report summarizes all the packages processed since your last End of Day process. This report lists the recipient and shipping information for each package as well as summary totals.

If you use multiple shippers to process shipments, the shipment information is grouped by shipper accounts, and the report information for each shipper starts on a new page. The shipper number is shown in the UPS Account No. field in the upper-right corner of the report.

Notes:

Dangerous Goods Hazardous Materials Manifest

Data File Connection

A data file connection defines a name used to store your import or export information. For example, define a name for the import of an Excel spreadsheet that has vendor addresses or customer shipments. The connection information is stored by the name you create. After you complete the import, you can reselect or edit the data file connection for repeated use. If this name refers to a database, the Import/Export Wizard opens the same database and prompts you to select the table that has your data. If it is an Excel spreadsheet or text file, the Import/Export Wizard follows the same directory path that you previously chose and lists any Excel spreadsheets or text files to perform another import or export.

Data Mode Types for Electronic Dimensioners

There are two data mode types for electronic dimensioners, as follows:

Note: If the dimensioner supports both Request Mode and Listen Mode, the Request Mode option under Data Mode is automatically selected. You can change the configuration to Listen Mode.

Data Type

An address is a data type. Data that you enter into an application, such as an Excel spreadsheet, has specific addresses or shipments that you may want to import into or export out of UPS WorldShip. The Import/Export Wizard lets you import six data types and export two data types.

Declaration for Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles US Customs Form 3299

This form provides detailed information to US Customs regarding unaccompanied goods across the border. It is required in order to clear unaccompanied personal effects or household goods through US Customs.

Declaration Statement

The legal explanation that US Customs uses to process your shipment. It must be identical to the declaration statement used by Customs.

Deficit Weight Pricing

If it is less expensive to rate a shipment weighing greater than 20 kgs at a higher weight, then UPS WorldShip adds additional weight to the shipment to achieve the higher weight price break. This weight is not the same as the actual weight.

If WorldShip applies deficit weight pricing, the Deficit Weight Applied indicator appears as follows:

Notes:

Delivery Area Surcharge

A surcharge applied to shipments delivered to residences and commercial locations in certain postal codes to help offset the higher cost of providing service to those areas.

Delivery Information Acquisition Device (DIAD)

A small computer that records information about all shipments picked up and delivered each day.

Dimension of a Package

To determine the total dimension of a package, measure the package length and then add twice the width and twice the height.

Note: Refer to the UPS Rate and Service Guide for current Large Package Weight and Measure requirements.

The total dimension of a package must be 165 inches (or local equivalent) or less. The length must be 108 inches (or local equivalent) or less.

Dimensional Weight

UPS WorldShip adds the package-level weights to determine the shipment-level weight. Each shipment is billed by the greater of its shipment-level dimensional weight, actual weight, or minimum billable weight.

To calculate the dimensional weight of a package:

  1. Multiply the length (L) by the width (W) by the height (H). The result is the cubic size of the package.

  2. Divide the cubic size by the dimensional weight divisor (see Note below).

    Cubic Size of Package / Dimensional Weight Divisor = Dimensional Weight

To calculate the dimensional weight of a shipment:

  1. Calculate the cubic size (L x W x H) of each package in the shipment (see above).

  2. Add all the cubic sizes of the packages. The result is the total cubic size of the shipment.

  3. Divide the total cubic size by the dimensional weight divisor (see Note below).

    Total Cubic Size of Shipment / Dimensional Weight Divisor = Dimensional Weight

Notes:

Dimensioner

A dimensioner is a device that measures three-dimensional or cube shaped objects such as packages, parcels, cartons, and boxes.

The measurements obtained and displayed to WorldShip depend on the type of dimensioner used, as follows:

Distribution List

A list of customer addresses that is a quick way to process an identical shipment for each customer on the list. You select a distribution list, specify the shipment once, and UPS WorldShip processes a shipment and prints all labels for each customer in the distribution list.

Doc Box

A burgundy-striped box that identifies the lead package in a UPS World Ease master shipment.

Note: WorldShip supports UPS World Ease Paperless shipments without a physical doc box.

Document (Doc) Label

Notes:

Document Shipment

A written, typed, or printed communication of no commercial value. Disks sometimes are acceptable as documents.

Domestic Shipment or Consolidated Movement

A shipment or consolidated movement in which the origin and destination countries/territories are the same.

Electronic Export Information (EEI)

Note: The Electronic Export Information (EEI) is used only if the origin of the shipment is the United States or Puerto Rico.

The EEI, formerly known as the Shipper's Export Declaration (SED), provides general information about your export transaction and is used for developing US export statistics and controls.

The EEI is only required if your shipment contains a commodity (or good) in one of the following instances:

An EEI is not required for shipments to Canada unless the goods are being exported under an export license or license exception or the shipment is destined for a third country.

Provided all information needed to complete an EEI is present, use one of the following filing methods to process an EEI using UPS WorldShip:

High Value Report

For all but Return Services shipments, this report automatically prints during the End of Day process only if you processed a package with a Declared Value of $1,000 or more. For Return Services shipments, this report prints during shipment processing instead of during the End of Day process. This report shows the tracking number, package ID, and Declared Value of each high-value package.

If you use multiple shippers to process high-value packages, the package information is grouped by shipper accounts, and the report information for each shipper starts on a new page. The shipper number is shown in the UPS Shipper No. field.

Important: This report prints twice during the End of Day process: one copy for you and one copy for the UPS driver. To record pickup confirmation for your records, ensure that the UPS driver signs your copy of the report and records the pickup time and total number of high-value packages on the last line of the report. Then, be sure to give the second copy of this report to your UPS driver for his or her records.

Hundredweight

International Shipper Agreement

An agreement between the exporter (usually you, the shipper) and UPS that allows UPS to complete export documents on behalf of the exporter. An exporter can either file an International Shipper Agreement directly with UPS or provide a Power of Attorney document with each international shipment. Once this agreement is filed with UPS, UPS WorldShip no longer prints a Power of Attorney for each international shipment. The International Shipper Agreement remains valid as long as the registered, commissioned user of WorldShip is the same as the exporter specified on the Ship From tab. If you change any of the address boxes other than the Attention, Telephone, and Fax boxes, you have designated a new exporter not covered by the International Shipper Agreement on file. If you process applicable international shipments with a new exporter, WorldShip generates a Power of Attorney.

Efficiency Tips for Laser Paper:

Labels for UPS World Ease

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

One 4" x 11" thermal label prints for the doc box and each child shipment package in a master shipment. The label for the child shipment package prints when you click Process Child Shipment, and the label for the doc box prints when you close out the master shipment. For Paperless shipments without a doc box, WorldShip prints a Summary label with instructions. If you print labels for multiple master shipments, the labels are sorted by Ship To country in ascending order.

The 4" x 11" World Ease label consists of two parts:

Affix the World Ease label to the Doc Box or child shipment package as follows:

  1. Remove the address label with the attached under label from the thermal label backing.

  2. Apply this label to the top of the package.

  3. Remove the over label from the thermal label backing, making sure not to remove the center portion of the thermal label backing.

  4. Center and apply the over label so that it covers only the address label that you applied in step 2.

The completed package should show only the over label with the under label directly beneath it. The address label should be hidden by the over label.

Note: The center portion of the thermal label backing on the over label must stay in place (see step 3) so that it does not stick to the address label. Once the consolidated shipment clears customs at the port of entry and the shipment is split, the over label is torn away to reveal the address label, and the package is delivered to the consignee by UPS.

Large Package

Use the total dimension of a package to determine if it qualifies as a large package. If the package qualifies, specify large package on the Detail tab.

Large package factors include:

Note: Refer to the UPS Rate and Service Guide for current Large Package Weight and Measure requirements.

Tip: If you type a package dimension on the Detail tab that qualifies the package as Large Package, UPS WorldShip automatically selects the Large Package check box, and the message "Large Package indicator has automatically been set on Package 1" appears on the Shipping window status bar.

Large Package Minimum Billable Weight

A minimum billable weight applies to the following shipments:

Refer to the UPS Rate and Service Guide for current Large Package Weight and Measure requirements.

A package qualifies as a large package when its dimension exceeds 130 inches and is less than or equal to 165 inches (or local equivalent).

Note: UPS WorldShip adds the package-level weights to determine the shipment-level weight. Each shipment is billed by the greater of its shipment-level dimensional weight, actual weight, or minimum billable weight.

Large Package Surcharge

A flat-rate, package-level surcharge that applies to shipments with specific origins as follows:

Refer to the UPS Rate and Service Guide for current Large Package Weight and Measure requirements.

This surcharge is applied to any package with a dimension greater than 130 inches and less than or equal to 165 inches (or local equivalent) and any weight, even one that exceeds the Large Package criteria or the longest side exceeds 96 inches. This surcharge is assessed once for each package in the shipment that meets the criteria.

Note: If a large package surcharge is not applied, an additional handling charge may apply if the actual weight of the package is equal to or more than 70 pounds but less than or equal to 90 pounds (or local equivalent).

If a large package surcharge is applied to a package, UPS WorldShip displays the following:

The large package surcharge applies to both Hundredweight and non-Hundredweight shipments.

Length of a Package

The largest dimension of a package.

Less-than Truck/Trailer Load

Less-than Truck/Trailer Load (LTL) refers to a quantity of freight less than that required to fill a truck or trailer.

A number required on the Export Accompanying Document (EAD) for a German export shipment with a customs value more than 1000 EUR.

UPS WorldShip validates this number as follows:

North American Free Trade Agreement Certificate of Origin (NAFTA CO)

Note: The North American Free Trade Agreement Certificate of Origin (NAFTA CO) is used only if the origin of the shipment is Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, or the United States.

The NAFTA CO determines if goods imported into Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the United States receive a reduction in duty. In order to receive the benefits of reduced duty, you must attach the NAFTA CO to the Commercial Invoice if you have determined your goods qualify for reduced duty and:

Shipments valued less than the above amounts only require a statement on the Commercial Invoice requesting NAFTA preferential tariff treatment.

To process a NAFTA CO using UPS WorldShip, use one of the following methods:

A unique number that identifies a Ground Freight or Worldwide Express Freight shipment. This number is assigned to each pickup request and assists the UPS driver with identifying LTL and Worldwide Express Freight shipments.

Pickup Request Number (PRN)

A unique number that identifies a scheduled UPS Smart Pickup. This number is assigned by UPS to each scheduled pickup.

Pickup Summary Barcode Report

This report automatically prints during the End of Day process for select shipments and origins (see notes below) and summarizes shipment information about the packages that your UPS driver is to pick up. This report includes:

If you use multiple shippers to process shipments, the shipment information is grouped by shipper accounts, and the report information for each shipper starts on a new page. The shipper number is shown in the Account Number field on the third line of the report.

Notes:

Postal Service Tracking ID

The Postal Service Tracking ID is a unique number that identifies certain types of shipments. This number is assigned by UPS to each shipment and can be used to track a shipment as it moves through the UPS and USPS systems to its destination.

Power of Attorney

An agreement between the exporter (usually you, the shipper) and UPS that allows UPS to complete export documents on behalf of the exporter. An exporter must provide a Power of Attorney with each international shipment or else file an International Shipper Agreement directly with UPS. If an International Shipper Agreement is filed with UPS, UPS WorldShip no longer prints the Power of Attorney for that exporter. If you change any of the address boxes other than the Attention, Telephone, and Fax boxes, you have designated a new exporter, and WorldShip generates a Power of Attorney as you process international shipments for the new exporter.

Pre-authorization

A condition that exists when the Air Freight shipment characteristics are such that special authorization is required before you can continue the shipping process or schedule a pickup request. When a pre-authorization scenario exists, such as the shipment exceeds a size limit or value threshold, you must call the UPS Service Center to authorize completion of the shipment in question.

Preprinted Label Stock

Your own label stock that displays a preprinted company logo in the top 2-inch (or local equivalent) extended area of the Thermal 4" x 8" or 4" x 8¼" (or local equivalent) label.

Primary Key

Your data file includes many fields in one or more tables or columns. A primary key uniquely identifies the records stored in a data file.

Notes:

PRO Number

A unique number that identifies a Ground Freight shipment. This number is assigned to each shipment and can be used to track a shipment from the point the shipper creates the shipment to its destination. If the PRO number is invalid or missing, a new number will automatically be created for the shipment.

Processing Mode

Two processing modes may be available as follows:

  1. Shipment Entry - allows you to create a shipment quickly by entering the total shipment weight and the number of packages in the shipment instead of entering each package in a shipment individually. See Speed Up Processing with Shipment Entry Processing Mode. If this mode is active, the following occurs:

  1. Package Entry - allows you to create a shipment using the Shipment Navigation Bar to enter shipment information for the individual packages in the shipment. See Use the Shipment Navigation Bar. If this mode is active, the following occurs:

  2. The left side of the Options tab shows both shipment and package options.

  3. The package dimensions (that is, the Length, Width, and Height boxes) on the Detail tab are active. The Dimensional Weight box under Shipment Details does not appear.

  4. The Use on All Packages check boxes on the Reference tab are clear and active.

Notes:

Producer

The person or company who manufactured, produced, or grew the current good.

Product Type

UPS assigns a product type to each approved Trade Direct shipper.

The product types are:

Profile

A saved collection of predefined preferences, including various service options, package options, shipment options, and reference numbers. Use the Profile Editor to add, delete, or modify a profile.

Q-Value

A number indicating the allowed quantity of dangerous goods combined materials in a package. The number is required on the IATA Shipper’s Declaration for Dangerous Goods. Quantities of different dangerous goods contained in one outer packaging must be such that "Q" does not exceed the value of 1.

Note: If you select the All Packed in One Fibreboard Box packaging type for a US 48 to Canada or a Canada to US 48 shipment, the Q-Value box becomes inactive.

Range Candidates

These candidates appear in the lower right in the UPS Interactive Address Reconciler window and notify you that the correct address may fall within the specified street, suite, or room number ranges. Since you can only view a candidate with a range, the Accept button remains inactive. Use the range candidates to determine the correct address and then manually update the original address information on the left side of the window.

Rate Type

The rate types used to display rates in UPS WorldShip include:

Reference Numbers

Assigning a customized reference number to each package makes it easier to coordinate with your (or your customer’s) billing or filing system. This reference number can be any information you want to associate with a package, such as a purchase order number, COD reference number, customer’s job number, or group of words that identifies that shipment (for example, 10 damaged widgets). You can type any combination of letters and numbers up to 35 characters.

When you ship a package, this reference number is recorded along with other vital information, so you can use it instead of the tracking number to track the package. This ability to track any UPS package by reference number (rather than by tracking number) gives you added flexibility and convenience.

See Specify the Reference Numbers and Print Reference Numbers on Labels.

Reference Qualifier

Identifies the package you are shipping with a customized reference number.

The reference qualifier consists of three parts:

You can add customized reference qualifiers by selecting More Tools on the Tools tab and then Reference Qualifier Editor.

For instructions on associating the reference qualifier with a particular reference number on the label, see Change the Reference Number Box Titles for a Customer.

Regional Value Content (RVC)

A percentage that indicates to what extent a good is produced in the producer’s local region. The origin of the good’s components or materials and the location of the construction or production of the good can affect this percentage. You can use the transaction value method or the net cost method to calculate the regional value content. The US government has regulations that determine the method a producer must use to calculate this percentage. This calculation is used during preparation of the NAFTA.

Required Field Set

The fields that you must complete in a window before you can continue. Use the Profile Editor and the Required Field Set Editor to change optional fields to required.

Residential Surcharge

To support shipments to or from residential locations, UPS defines a residential location as a pickup or delivery to a home, including a business operating out of a home that does not have an entrance open to the public. A surcharge applies to each package picked up from or delivered to a residential location. WorldShip alerts you of this surcharge with a status message on the status bar.

Return Service Customer Receipt

If you select UPS Print Return Label for the Return Services shipment option, this receipt may automatically print on the next available sheet of label stock following the package label for the same package. The shipper includes this receipt (along with the return package label) with the outbound shipment, and the customer returning the merchandise keeps this receipt for tracking purposes and as proof of pick up by UPS.

Note: In order to automatically print this receipt, you must set a system preference using the System Preferences Editor. See Set Printing Setup System Preferences.

Shipment

A group of one or more packages sent via the same UPS service to a single address. All parts of the address must be identical for each package in the shipment.

Shipment Control Form

This report summarizes all the UPS Mail Innovations packages processed since your last Close Out process. This report lists the following types of information: Shipment From, Shipment Control Number and Barcode, Product or Services, Shipment Information, Cost Center, and Conditions of Contract.

Shipment Label Header

The shipment label header is 3 1/2" (width) by 1 3/4" (length). The header prints in the top 2-inch extended area of the following label stock dimensions:

This area can be customized using the Custom Label Editor.

Note: You can choose a primary and secondary rate type to display in this window simply by setting a shipper editor preference. See Set Rate Type and Storage Preferences.

Shipper Number

A six-digit identifier that identifies a customer who ships packages via UPS. UPS assigns shipper numbers. These numbers may include numbers and some letters (A, E, F, K, M, N, R, T, V, W, and X are valid letters; B, C, D, G, H, I, J, L, O, P, Q, S, U, Y, and Z are invalid letters).

A type of barcode that can print in the lower 2-inch (or local equivalent) extended area of the Thermal 4" x 8" or 4" x 8¼" (or local equivalent) label. You are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of this barcode.

The SSCC barcode consists of the following string without the commas: (00), space,0, space, manufacturer’s identification number, space, unique reference number, space, Modulo 10 check character. UPS WorldShip applies this format by adding the appropriate spaces as you type the number. You can type a maximum of 20 characters. An example is (00) 0 0012345 123456789 1. If you enter the check character, the system will validate the SSCC-18 number. If you do not enter the check character, the system will calculate the SSCC-18 number for you.

Single Workstation

A workstation on which the Single Workstation version of UPS WorldShip is installed. This workstation uses a database in its local directory where the application is stored.

From this workstation, the single user has access to all functionality in WorldShip except for the Remote Workstations functionality. Since the Remote Workstations functionality does not appear on the single workstation, single users can disregard all help topics that discuss that functionality.

State Department License (SDL)

The State Department License (SDL) is kept on file by US Customs at the port of export and is required for US export shipments containing controlled commodities, such as firearms, military electronics, general aircraft parts, and optical equipment. The Department of State's Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) issues export licenses and oversees manufacturers, exporters, and brokers of articles on the US Munitions List (USML). SDLs may be permanent or temporary, however, permanent SDLs is the only SDL type that is currently permitted in UPS WorldShip.
