1. Retrieve your Worldwide Express Authentication Key


To connect to the Worldwide Express web services you need to obtain an Authentication Key. To do so, sign into Worldwide Express’s online shipping system, Speedship. Select Web Services from the Services menu.

Click on the Request Authentication Key button…

…and complete the form. Select Speedship from the Web Services drop down list if you are requesting an authentication key for small package quotes (UPS/parcel), or Speedfreight for LTL freight quotes. (Note: If you will be using both, you only need to perform this exercise once. The Authentication Key will be the same in both cases. The selection from the drop down list is used to inform the Worldwide Express sales staff, not to activate a particular web service.)

An email containing the Authentication Key will be sent to the email address entered into the form.
