Confusion - To Ship

I was re-studying Lesson 11 in my Simplified manual with some reading practice this evening and I am a bit confused with the yellow highlighted word. (This picture is not of the entire sentence) but it says "...asked me to ship to her..." [home] is the next word. But, I don't understand why the phrase "to ship" is written the way it is. I was under the impression that the upward diagonal line represents "it" or "at". Am I missing a principal or rule somewhere?
