Import/Export


With the Import feature, you can import User, Department and Reference files. See below for detailed instructions on completing the import templates and for the proper layout and format of the data. The file must be saved to a comma-separated values (.csv) format prior to importing into Shipping Administration.
  • Department and User records: a maximum of 250 records can be imported at one time. If you need to import more than 250 records, you must divide the records up into as many files as are necessary to accommodate this requirement, and import them separately.
  • Reference records: a maximum of 5,000 Reference records can be imported at one time. If you need to import more than 5,000 records, you must divide the records up into as many files as are necessary to accommodate this requirement, and import them separately. A maximum of 250,000 Reference records are allowed in the system.
