For UPS / Shipping Users

January 10, 2017

UPS Daily Rate Table Update   (action required)

For those using the UPS integration feature in the Shipping solution, the UPS Daily Rate Tables for 2017 have been posted to the Solutions for SYSPRO website and must be imported.  

Click here for the detailed steps, or for those already familiar with the process, follow these two abbreviated steps:
  1. For UPS Daily Rate customers, click the following to download the file:
    2017 UPS Daily Rate and Zone Information file
  2. Unzip the downloaded file and place it in a directory on the SYSPRO Application server.  Run the Shipping/Handheld System Setup and select the "UPS" tab.  Verify that the PLD directory has a valid path. Click on "Import UPSInfo" and when requested enter the path and filename to the text file.  Note:  importing the UPSInfo file into SYSPRO from the above download link can take a while as it is importing over 330,000 lines of information, so please be patient after the import begins-- do not get frustrated and kill the session.

UPS Dimensional Weight Calculation Change   (alert)

This update accommodates a small change in the dimensional weight calculation by UPS.  If the calculated dimensional weight is higher than the actual weight, the dimensional weight is used to calculate the cost and the set divisor changes at a given package size.  For more details on the calculations, please contact your UPS representative.

UPS Retail Rates   (alert)

The daily rates are available as noted above; however, please note the 2017 UPS Retail Rates are forthcoming.

UPS Routing Codes and Fuel Surcharges Update (recommended)

We also recommend updating the URC file and Fuel Surcharge information.  Instructions on how to do that are also in our UPS tutorial under Shipping tutorials-- click here to go there now and start with the sections "Installing Routing Codes" and "Setting/Maintaining UPS Fuel Surcharges".

If you have questions regarding this information, please contact your dealer for assistance.
