End of Day Close


The End of Day close process uploads processed shipment and package information to carriers that support this process. The process changes shipment status to "Posted."

Once you post shipments, StarShip prints all enabled End of Day documents. You can also view posted shipments and print documents from End of Day History.

On the left, carriers appear at the highest level with your account numbers below them. To the right, the account is broken down by carrier, account, and the carrier service used for the shipment.

The number next to each label represents the total number of packages at that level. All shipments that have been processed and have a ready date on or before the date selected in the "Total Packages on or before <date>" field are accounted for in the totals.
