Q: What is the Handling & Package fields?
A: The Handling field applies only when UPS is being used for shipping items. When set to Yes, UPS includes an additional fee in the Rate displayed for a specific service because the item requires additional handling on the part of UPS. For example, a package that would ship for $5.50 when Handling is set to No may ship for $6.20 when Handling is set to Yes.
Domestic shipments in the UPS system may be assessed an Additional Handling charge. This charge applies to the following:
* Any article that is encased in an outside shipping container made of metal or wood
* Any item, such as a barrel, drum, pail, or tire, that is not fully encased in a corrugated cardboard shipping container
* Any package with the longest side exceeding 60 inches or its second-longest side exceeding 30 inches
* Packages exceeding 70lbs in actual weight.
Certain Large Air Packages may be subject to the Additional Handling charge while designated Large Packages are exempt.
Additionally, UPS reserves the right to assess the Additional Handling charge for any package that, in UPS’s sole discretion, requires special handling.
This charge may be applied to all packages without regard to the service level selected.
The Packaging Type refers to the type of packaging that will be used to ship the item. By default, the system assumes that the field will be set to Your Packaging.

For all other shipping destinations, you must calculate the shipping cost and apply it to the order manually.
