Try this way, it will help you.

In your controller file that $postUrl points to:

protected $csv;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Framework\File\Csv $csv
     $this->csv = $csv;

//The function name should match your controller path
public function import($file)
     if (!isset($file['tmp_name'])) 
        throw new \Magento\Framework\Exception\LocalizedException(__('Invalid file upload attempt.'));

     $csvData = $this->csv->getData($file['tmp_name']);

     foreach ($csvData as $row => $data) {
         if ($row > 0){
             //Start your work


  1. The $data is an array object already. It will look like array( 0 => 'UPS', 1 => 'One Night Service' ...... )
  2. I added if ($row > 0) to skip first row as it's the attribute row only.
  3. You must die() the execution after your job done. I assume your controller is custom made. If you want to override the core controller.

  • This is a demo code example you have to use function to skip array value like using array_slice array_pop etc. Oct 1, 2018 at 12:27
