How do I note my PO# on my receipt?

In the “Instructions for Us” box of the EXPEDITER™ order form, there is a field titled “P.O. # (or other information) for Packing List”. Add your data here and it will be printed on your Packing List/Receipt.

How do I relay additional information to you about my shipment?

If you need to give additional information to us as we process your order, use the field titled “Comments” at the bottom of the “Instructions for Us” box of the EXPEDITER™ order form.

My shipment has more than 1 “Partial Container” or “Partial Pallet”. How do I enter the data?

If fairly straight-forward, you may add the information about the quantities, weights and cubes in the “Instructions for Us” section in the “Comments” box at the bottom of the order form. Alternatively, you may call 617-314-7700 or email us at expediter@compliancelabelservice.com

My contract has multiple CLINs. How do I “CLONE” the first one to save time entering the rest?

By utilizing our ‘SAVE & CLONE’ feature, typing repetition is reduced.

  1. Start by clicking “New Order”
  2. Enter the data for your first CLIN
  3. When complete, click the red box, at the bottom right corner of the input form, titled
    “SAVE & CLONE”’
  4. The first CLIN is now saved with its own Label ID# and a new order form titled “Cloning Label Order” will open.
  5. Most of the data from the first CLIN is already filled-in. You will need to add the next CLIN number, Quantity ofItems, Shipment Number, Weight/CUBE and make any other changes or additions, such as Serial/UID numbers, Lot Numbers, TCN, etc.
  6. Keep saving and cloning until all CLINs have been entered.

What should go in the “Additional data for Exterior Container Label” field?

Text input to this field will print at the bottom of the ECLs. Examples of how to take advantage of this field are to input information such as –

  • CLIN (always incorporated in the PDF417 data matrix code)
  • SHIPMENT NO (always incorporated in the PDF417 data matrix code)
  • Additional CLINs included in container
  • 1 PG = 100 EA

How do I use the Transportation Control Number (TCN) wizard?

If your contract does not include a Transportation Control Number (TCN) or a MILSTRIP Number and you would like to create one just use EXPEDITER™’s TCN Wizard. Located to the right of the TCN input field, click on the red truck icon.
  1. Enter the date you are creating the TCN—MM/DD/YY
  2. If this is the first TCN number that you are creating today (ex. 001 for 1st TCN, 002 for 2nd, 003 for 3rd, etc.)
  3. Click ‘Save’ and EXPEDITER™ will have assigned and entered your 17-character TCN number for you!

How do I use the Cubic Foot (CUBE) Calculator?

EXPEDITER ™ has a handy calculator, located to the right of the “Cubic Foot” input field, that will automatically calculate the CUBE of a container when the Length, Width and Height (in inches) are entered.

If you would like to manually calculate the CUBE, simply multiply the Length, Width, and Height (in inches) and then divide by 1,728. Always round up.

How do I input my Serial/UID numbers into EXPEDITER™ ?

Upload a whole file of Serial Numbers for MIL-STD-129 labels at your EXPEDITER™ account! As many numbers as you want! Choose either Microsoft Excel files (.XLS or .XLSX) or Comma-Separated Value files (.CSV). No more entering each Serial Number manually or emailing us a list…though you can if you really want to. It works for both Serialized items and those with UID/IUID.


1) At the “Item Identification” section of the MIL-STD-129 Order form select ‘Serial Numbers Only’ or ‘UID’
2) If SNs are Sequential, simply provide the starting SN and final SN

3) If SNs are not sequential, and you do not want to input the SNs manually, select ‘Upload serial numbers from file’

4) Click the red box ‘Upload SER NOs from file’

5) Click ‘+Choose’. Browse your files, select the file you want, and click ‘Open’

6) Click the red box ‘UPLOAD’ and EXPEDITER™ will populate the table on the right with your SNs
7) Confirm that the ‘Quantity of Items’ in the ‘Item’ box matches the number of SNs uploaded
8) Check the SNs that were uploaded for accuracy
9) Click the red box ‘ADD SERIAL NUMBERS TO ORDER’
