UPS Worldwide Economy is a ship to carton service. This means a carton is created and filled with loose packages each individually labeled. The services purpose is to save money on initial transportation to the processing facility where it is then taken through customs.

WWE can be added to service groups but it will not display a rate. The UPS account must be enabled for WWE.
Shipping your first order:
The order must be international and WWE - U60 or U61 service selected. You will then see a Worldwide Economy Carton under Service Description. You may have to rerate after selecting the service.
To select a carton, or create your first carton select the Edit Pencil on Worldwide Economy Carton.
You will see UI to select previously created cartons, but since you are creating a carton you will instead select the create new carton button.
Once you click create carton a dropdown will appear.
Naming your new carton:
The name of your carton is for internal use in the Desktopshipper software. We highly suggest using a Unique name you will be able to identify later during closing or once the carton is selected. We suggest something like Service level, Ship to Facility, Date and a Unique identifier if you are doing multiple a day. Example: U11-CarsonCA-March04-A
Next, you will select any domestic service to be the master tracking label.
Once the Carton service is selected you will then select the Close Facility. The facility should be pre determined by the carrier with the customer. It is possible for a customer to ship to multiple facilities. This would be arranged with the carrier.
Once the carton is created it will now show as an available option in the carton selection screen. Select Confirm Carton Confirmation.
If you are just selecting a previously created carton, left click on a carton from your list and once the carton is highlighted blue you would just click confirm carton selection.
A commercial invoice will then be created. This will pop up in the browser or be sent to a printer.
It will also create a shipping label that will be put on the package going into main carton.
You can create labels for a single carton until you reach a combined weight of 150 pounds for DDP, 70 pounds for DDU, or when your ready to ship the carton. If you do max out the weight you will need to create another Carton. There is no automation for selecting a carton.
Additional Carton Information:
Cartons are separated by duties and service used, so you will not see cartons created under DDP when rating or shipping under DDU and vice versa.
You cannot delete cartons once they are made. They will only be removed once they are closed.
Each service has a max weight of 150 pounds for DDP, 70 pounds for DDU.

You cannot void labels after the carton has been closed. UPS does not allow you too.
