MPS C.O.D. Elements

Element Package/Shipment Level Description
SequenceNumber Package Required for MPS shipments. Each C.O.D. shipment must contain a SequenceNumber. For example, the first package (also known as the master package) has a sequence number of 1. All additional packages are numbered sequentially. This number system is important because the master package carries shipment-level information.
MasterTrackingId Package Required for MPS shipments. The reply for the first package (master package) in a C.O.D. shipment includes the MasterTrackingID element. This element includes both the MasterTrackingNumber and FormID. For each subsequent ship request for an MPS C.O.D., the MasterTrackingID (with MasterTrackingNumber and FormID) element is required.
MasterTrackingID/TrackingIDType Package Valid values are:
  • USPS
PackageCount Shipment Total number of packages in the MPS C.O.D. shipment. Include this element in the master package request.
TotalShipmentWeight Shipment Total shipment weight is added to the master package in the MPS shipment and contains the total weight of all packages in the shipment.
