UPS API

Made Easy with EasyPost

Connect with UPS in minutes

National carriers such as UPS have their own APIs designed to create shipping labels, track packages, facilitate returns, and more. While it’s completely possible for e-commerce businesses to integrate directly with the UPS API, doing so can take your developers weeks or even months to complete. Plus, as updates roll out, this means your team will have to spend additional time and resources maintaining this API integration.

Alternatively, e-commerce companies can consider integrating with EasyPost’s multi-carrier shipping API to access not only UPS’ API, but our full catalogue of carriers. Leave carrier relationship management up to us instead.

Using EasyPost’s simple Shipping API, you can start shipping with UPS and dozens of others. Solve complex shipping logistics problems with a single integration. By leveraging EasyPost’s technology, businesses can streamline, automate, and gain end-to-end control of their shipping process with our suite of flexible RESTful API solutions.
