Obtaining an Authentication Key is necessary to connect to the web services of Worldwide Express. After signing into Worldwide Express online shipping system, find and click Services from the menu. Then, select Web Services from the drop down list.
At the bottom right of the page, click on the Request Authentication Key button.
You will then be shown a form. Complete the form and press the Submit Request button. The Authentication Key will be sent to the email address entered in the form.
From the drop down list for LTL freight quotes, select Speedfreight. Under “Small Packages Quotes” select Speedship. Remember that the Authentication Key is the same for both, so you only have to go through this process once, even if you want to use both the services.

Worldwide Express Account Number: This is your WWE account number. If you do not know your account number, contact your nearby Worldwide Express office.
Speedfreight Username: The Speedfreight username or Speedship username is the same username that is used to login to Worldwide Express’s online shipping application.
Speedfreight Password: This is the same password you use to sign into Worldwide Express’s online shipping application.
Authentication Key: This is the same key that you obtained in Step 2.
Identify drop ship locations and warehouses
To add drop ship locations and warehouses, simply click the Location option given under Products and then choose Add Location. For warehouses, it is necessary to have a complete inventory of products; otherwise, it is considered drop shipped. If two or more warehouses are on the list, the one nearest to the shopper will be considered to calculate shipping rates.
Drop shipping is a method of supply chain management where a retailer does not keep products in stock. Instead, it transfers customer’s shipment information to another retailer or manufacturer who then delivers to the customer on your behalf. The checkout shopping cart will show a single figure estimate if drop shipped products are included in the order. The single figure rate represents the total after calculating shipping requirements for each item.
