Connect Your Own Carriers

In addition to the carriers that are built into your ShipEngine account, you can connect your own carriers and even get your own negotiated rates inside ShipEngine.

If you have other carrier accounts you’d like to add, you can do so by clicking + Add a Carrier under the Other Shipping Providers section of the Connections page in your ShipEngine dashboard.

You need to have an account already set up with each respective carrier. Read our guide to setting up carrier accounts for more details. Additionally, we have specific guides for FedEx and UPS that will help you get up and running with these shipping providers.


Here's how to connect a carrier in your ShipEngine dashboard:

  1. Go to Connections in the left-hand sidebar.
