Tag a Shipment


What are tags, and why use tags?

Tags are simple text-based flags or identifiers. Tags can be used as a simple label, such as Guaranteed_Overnight or Fragile so shipments can be easily queried later.

You can tag an existing shipment by making the request below.


POST /v1/shipments/:shipment_id/tags/:tag_name

curl -iX POST https://api.shipengine.com/v1/shipments/se-2102034/tags/east_warehouse \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  "shipment_id": "se-2102034",
  "tag": {
    "name": "east_warehouse"


New Tags

If the tag doesn't exist, we will create it for you. You can also Create a Tag manually.
