You need to provide an example of what the returned event data looks like. With an accurately formatted example, someone can assist you with regex. Or if you already know regex, look up documentation for the "| rex" command. Generic example would be like:
| rex field=_raw "(something\sbefore)(?<shipping point>\d{4})"

It depends on your results. Take a look at the doc here for guided assistance with extracting fields: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.3.2/Knowledge/ExtractfieldsinteractivelywithIFX
