This procedure is no longer necessary if you are using the UPS OnLine Tools system.
If your driver wants you to provide an End of Day form, or your UPS rep wants to review your PLD file, just let them know that ShipWorks is a Certified UPS Partner and sends this information directly to UPS using their API.
Our integration with UPS generates a UPS label with a package and bow-tie icon at the bottom right of the label. This indicates to drivers that the packages are pre-paid and prescanned. When packages are processed using the OnLine Tools system, an “End of Day” report is not required and UPS drivers do not need to scan each package. At most, all you would need to give them is a total package count that they would enter into their PDA. If your driver insists on scanning each package, provide him/her with an End of Day report.
Figure 1.1: The bow-tie indicates that your package was pre-scanned into the UPS OnLine Tools system.
