Log in your AfterShip account and Go to Shipments

Click on CSV import to see the CSV Auto Fetch option

Once you click on the CSV Auto Fetch option, you will be asked to set the import rule.

With this, you can simply update the CSV file at the URL you specify, and AfterShip will automatically download the file and import the shipments.
