It’s That Time of Year — Carrier Updates for 2021

As we all gear up for 2021, we wanted to take a moment to wish all of our customers happy, healthy and relaxing holidays. We would also to inform our E-Ship customers of some carrier-related year-end updates.

We’ve outlined the updates below. Your Lanham reseller or Lanham Services will be glad to assist you with updating your E-Ship rates. (We recommend you reach out as soon as possible to schedule any required assistance since many customers will be working on staying current on carrier rates.)

2021 UPSlink Rates:

UPS recently provided us with their new UPSlink rates, and they are now ready to be loaded into E-Ship. The 2021 UPSlink rate changes will go into effect on December 27, 2020.

Users must be current on their Lanham enhancements in order to be eligible for new UPSlink rate and associated routing code files.

Effective January 10, 2021, customers using UPSlink will need a minor code change to accommodate a 2021 UPSlink “Additional Handling Charge,” which will be applied to any package that has a length (longest side of the package) plus girth [(2 x width) plus (2 x height)] that combined exceeds 105 inches. The code change has been provided to Lanham Reselling Partners.

Customers using the new Lanham E-Ship UPS Extension are using UPS Web Services, which automatically accesses the Shipping API and the Rating API. These customers do NOT need to update their rates, as they will be accessed automatically.

Please contact your Lanham Reseller or Lanham Services for details. If your reseller is unavailable, please contact  Lanham Services at 928-846-4909 or  for a fixed fee quote to import the rates and make the change.

Other Carriers:

 There’s no need to worry about incorporating rate changes from FedEx. These rates are updated automatically in E-Ship since they are provided via web services. If you’d like to read up on FedEx Shipping rate changes for 2021, you’ll find details  here.


The USPS 2021 rate changes are also handled automatically. Their annual rate changes will take effect on January 24, 2021. For more details, click here.
