    What happens when a customer ships a Next day air package with a hand written label but doesn't add a shipper number or their credit card info?

    First, they may have entered a shipper number on the consignee, or third party billing area, and not put it where it can be seen after top page torn off. If there isn't, billing searches for number, and adds a fee to the charges for that. If still nothing, they send one to return address.

    This one doctor's officer I deliver to always tries giving me NDA's with the carbon copy shipping docs ripped off, thinking they'll get sh* for free. I know their account from a previous copy though so I just write it on.

    Anybody ever pick one up to later find out the add is a PO box. Then what

    RTS once they find it. Undeliverable. Maybe an address look up first if it makes it into the system that far.

    It gets sent to the consignee's center, address searched, then postcarded if it can't be found.

    Part of my new job is imaging ASD's. I am amazed at the number of ASD's that either did not have a weight or the weight was in fractions. I used to always make sure that any ASD's that I picked up were properly filled out, especially the weight, as I believe the company charges for a minimum weight if there is no weight entered or the driver making the delivery does not enter a weight when scanning the ASD. This is part of what they call closed loop billing.

    Whenever I go to a place that is still using ASDs, I say, "Do you have online access?? I am pretty sure that there is a surcharge for using that kind of label and it is cheaper if you print one up online, plus if you have to schedule a pickup, you do not have to call anyone."

    I believe it is $5/ASD for processing.

    Customer is assessed a $13 Missing/Invalid Account Number or Refusal Fee

    "Missing/Invalid Account Number or Refusal Fee. A processing fee will be charged for a missing or invalid account number when the account number, including the Shipper’s account number, is missing, the account number is not the correct account number for the bill to party, the account number is for a Receiver or Third Party who fails to pay the Charges, or the Package is shipped to an unauthorized Consignee. In the event of nonpayment by the Receiver or Third Party, the Shipper will be billed a refusal fee plus the Charges."

  15. Gawd do I loathe waybills! Get a fkn computer & a UPS internet acct. or Worldship you prehistoric phux! Rarely a weight on there or an acct. number, then customers get upset when the driver enters 150 pounds as a guess. Lmao. I try to guess fairly, but it's a lot harder than one may think.
  16. Good one. I'm gonna start using that.
