FreightDesk Online provides two types of parcel carrier connections to UPS.
Follow the instructions below that relate to how you want to connect to UPS.
If you haven't already done so...
Select the option to Use my Ups.com account.
Enter your Ups.com account information in the form and then click the Verify and Save button.
FreightDesk Online will validate the information in the form and save it. If there is an error, then correct it and try again. The information you enter should be consistent with what appears on your UPS invoices.
Enable the checkbox labeled Enable Negotiated Rates if you want to see your negotiated rates when using FreightDesk Online.
If you want to see your negotiated rates in FreightDesk Online and you received an invoice from UPS in the last 90 days, retrieve the most recent one. You'll need to refer to it while completing the remainder of the connection settings. UPS requires this for security purposes. Enable the checkbox for Invoice Information. Another form will appear to collect the additional information.
|Control ID||The Control ID can be found in the top right-hand corner of the first page of your UPS invoice.|
|Invoice Number||The Invoice Number can be found in the top right-hand corner of the first page of your UPS invoice.|
|Invoice Amount||The Invoice Amount can be found on the bottom half of the first page of your UPS invoice.|
|Invoice Date||The invoice date can be found in the top right-hand corner of the first page of your UPS invoice.|
|Relation To Account||This should be set to "Shipper" in nearly all cases.|
