By generating reports, you can see order, client, shipping, courier charges, account and status information for each shipment. 

The Shipment Detail Report, provides a detailed breakdown of each shipment at the order level. 

NOTE: If you encounter uncertainties regarding the detailed charges provided by techSHIP, take the following details into account.

While the Techship API can receive PackageFreightCharge values, the capability to handle charges at the package level depends on the Carrier's support for it. 

Otherwise, only the overall FreightCharge is available. For example, it UPS does not support package-level charge details, whereas FedEx does.

Fuel surcharge is indeed built into the total charge. If your report consistently displays this item as 0 or empty, it does means that that is how the Carrier reported it.
Similarly, accessorial fees are part of the total charge. Discounts, if applicable, are already factored into the total charge. Only markup is not included in the TotalShippingCharge reported (in Techship API, it should be referred to as ShippingChargeTotal).

The Shipment Detail reports can run in two modes:

  • Manifest date: Shows the orders that are manifested within the chosen date range.
  • Label date: Shows the orders for which labels were generated (could be manifested or not) within the chosen date range.

To generate the report:

1. Select Generate Reports from the Reports dropdown 

2. Click on Shipment Detail to deploy the filters

3. Specify the Start and End dates

4. Select if you want to include the rates considered when rate shopping in the report

5. Select the filters according to your needs:

  • Date Filter: Select between Manifest (includes manifested orders only) or Label (includes all orders for which a label was generated, manifested or not)
  • Client: Includes orders from the selected Client only
  • Carrier: Includes orders from the selected Carrier only
  • WMS Callback status: Includes orders with the selected status (Processed, Failed, etc.) only
  • Manifest ID: Includes orders included in the indicated manifest only
  • Country: Includes orders from the selected Country only

6. Press Download

The report information can be split in the following sections:

  • Columns A-D: Client, Carrier and Service Level information
  • Columns E-P: Ship to and Tracking information
  • Columns Q-Z: Courier charges, taxes and markup (note that Courier charges are available only if the shipper is billed - if a third party billing account is used they will not be available)
  • Columns AA-AG: Order numbers, weights and ship date information
  • Columns AH+: Account and processing information

NOTE: When reading the charges columns take into account the following considerations:

- PreTaxShippingCharge also includes FSC
- TotalShippingCharge = PreTaxShippingCharge + taxes
- Markup is not included to TotalShippingCharge, it is specified as separate column FeeMarkup
- Total Public Shipping Charge is the full price before discounts with taxes (public list price)
- Pre Tax Public Shipping Charge is the price before discounts without taxes

WARNING: techShip reports use the UTC timezone, and up to 12:00AM, while your WMS will probably use your local time. This timeframe can lead to considerable differences, specially if the time you manifest or handle the highest volumes (half-to-end of the day) are within it. In some cases it is required to use the date filters with a day less from the Start date and a day later from the End date to cover a whole date if you have a big difference with the UTC timezone.
