UPS Expands Paperless Invoicing

UPS has incorporated its paperless invoicing service into the UPS Shipping Tool, an application program interface (API) that allows for integration of the tool into customers' own websites and internal applications.

The UPS Paperless Invoice and international UPS Returns features were introduced by the company in January. Since that time, customers with shipments originating in more than 30 countries have processed hundreds of thousands of paperless shipments, UPS claimed.

The free service allows for the integration of order processing, shipment preparation and commercial invoice data. It then transmits that data to customs offices around the world electronically. As a result, UPS said, customers reduce the chance of making manual errors while filling out customs documentation. The paperless technology aids companies who manage shipments to 98 countries and territories via systems such as UPS WorldShip, CampusShip and Internet Shipping.
