RSS - Really Simple Syndication

RSS/News Aggregators (also called Readers) will download and display RSS feeds from many sources, including uShip.com, which allows you, among other things, to see new shipment listings in real time. You can either use your my uShip page or a website such as Yahoo! or Google, or use a program such as Awasu, FeedDemon or Pluck to read the feeds.

To add a feed, click on the orange RSS buttons you see on the site. Right-click or use CTRL+C to copy the URL from the address bar of your browser, which should show a page full of code. Go back to your newsreader, choose the category where you want the new subscription to live, and select New or New Channel from the File menu. In most cases, the URL you copied should automatically be pasted into the URL field in the New Channel wizard. If not, you can cut and paste the URL yourself.
