How to process USMCA shipments with NRGship

This article is current as of July 2020. It will be updated as we receive new information from our carrier partners.

 

As of July 1st, 2020, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) will replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Some shipments that cross the borders of these countries may require special import forms.

For USMCA details and forms, go to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection USMCA page. For NAFTA information, go to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection NAFTA page.

UPS

Currently the UPS Developer Kit APIs do not support the new USMCA forms for automated processing.  You will need to produce your own USMCA forms and apply them to the outside of packages. You can find more information on USMCA and a sample form for UPS shipments using this link.

FedEx

Currently the FedEx Shipment APIs do not support the new USMCA forms for automated processing.  You will need to produce your own USMCA forms and apply them to the outside of packages. You can find more information on USMCA and a sample form for FedEx shipments using this link. We are working on an update where you can attach a PDF version of the FedEx form to your shipment.

Quickly save labels to PDF

NRGship Pro for UPS and NRGship Pro for FedEx both have the ability to create PDF versions of labels that were originally shipped using output to thermal printers. When printing to a thermal printer, we produce output files that are native to the device. In previous releases if you needed a PDF you would have to void the label and re-ship for laser and then save as PDF. We are now able to convert these labels to PDF so they can be created quickly by choosing the PDF option from shipment detail.
