services, on the Get UPS Online Tools page in the Premium Tools section select
"UPS Shipping". This service requires that you submit a request form as well as
request an access key. Please follow the directions on that page to request

developers key you can use the site to request that they be resent by clicking
on the "Resend Developer's Key" link that is visible on the right side of most
of the online tools pages, or by clicking on the request access link for the
tools to have the XML access key for the tool resent.

of the wizard email all the documents generated to firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject indicating a
request for shipping service certification. If you are printing labels, you will
also need to fax in the labels that were printed by the wizard to (702) 319-2962
