UPS Customer Classification Codes

Overview

UPS has four customer classification codes. These codes are used in different scenarios and outlined below. It’s important to note that ShipperHQ does not provide UPS classification codes. If you offer a certain rate to your customers it’s important to ensure that you can actually ship at those rates. Talk to your UPS rep to determine which customer classification code you would need use for your requirements.

Rates Associated with Shipper Number

This is the most common option, which returns negotiated/incentivised shipping rates.

Daily Rates

Applies to shippers that have an existing customer account prior to January 3, 2011 that provides for Daily Rates, or UPS Scheduled Pickup service implemented prior to January 3, 2011. The Daily Rates are the list rates used by UPS for years.
