Accessorials
The Accessorials step offers you additional services for your shipment. These services are not part of the carrier service by default; they are known as accessorials. The accessorials available depend on the carrier service that you choose. In some cases, there is a surcharge for the accessorial. Accessorials Step displays the Accessorials step.

Accessorials Step
A number of fields appear on the Accessorials step.
Freight Payment Method
Choose the appropriate freight payment method from the drop-down list. Freight Payment Method lists possible values for this field. Depending on the carrier and service, other payment methods may be available. For example, Prepaid to Port of Export, Delivery Duty Paid, and Free Domicile are additional payment methods applicable to UPS.
