StarShip shipping software | Version 15.0

DIM Weight, Dynamics GP Enhancements, USPS/Endicia features, User Definable fields, UPS Capital, Branded Email, Reports, 2015 carrier rate/service update

UPS & FedEx DIM Weight Pricing – The most significant change: both UPS & FedEx will impose NEW dimensional (DIM) weight pricing on all ground packages. Lightweight shippers take note: a 1 lb. package with a size 10"x12"15" will now be billed at 11 lbs.! A few things to consider:

  • We’ve added a new flag that requires DIMs to process a shipment
  • Ship via rules can automatically select the "best way"
  • StarShip can maintain your custom package dimensions

Dynamics GP Enhancements

  • BATCH SHIPPING and Enhanced Search – Use filters to better manage your document view. Select a batch of orders and StarShip will process the shipments, print labels and update the source document in one click!

  • Priority Mail Cubic Pricing – do you ship small, heavy boxes? Packages that weigh less than 20 lbs. and measure .50 cubic feet at most are eligible and you could save BIG! …and this year the USPS significantly dropped the number of pieces needed to quality from 150,000 to 50,000!

    Sending a 20 lb., 3x4x8" package from CT to OH would normally cost us $19.38. With cubic pricing that same package could cost as little as $4.99!
