You should use grep to look for where your local ship method is being used
in your code, something like:

grep -r "local" /CATROOT/products

Then you can see where you need to add UPS and FedX options.

You can use grep in this case also, or look in
CATROOT/products/mv_metadata.asc, search for 'Partially Shipped' or similar
and you will find where to add a shipping status. Be careful in there! Back
it up first or best to use the Admin in the tables area.

Good luck!
