Editing Your BOL after Booking

Updated

There’s not a way to edit your bill of lading information via uShip once you’ve booked your shipment.

Depending on what you need to change, you can either cover the incorrect information and write in the correct information or you’ll need to cancel and book your shipment again with the correct details. A good rule of thumb for determining when you need to cancel and when you can edit by hand is whether or not the price could be affected. Things that affect price include zip codes, number of packages, weight, dimensions, and location type.

If the delivery address has changed, but it’s still in the same zip code, feel free to write in the new address prior to releasing the freight to the carrier. If you discover that you’ll need your carrier to deliver to a residence rather than a business, cancel and book with the correct information.

If the weight, dimensions, freight class, zip code or location type needs to change, you will need to cancel your shipment and book again. This will ensure that you are aware of the costs associated with the corrected shipment, and will not be surprised by an additional charge after delivery.
