What is Consignor Shipping Rules?

Consignor Shipping Rules is a feature in Consignor that you can use to automate your company’s shipping policy and make sure that you always pick the best delivery method for your shipments. This way your warehouse staff don’t have to remember and manually manage your company’s shipping policy, which otherwise can be a difficult and time-consuming task. Moreover, by automating your shipping rules you can lower your freight costs, utilize your carriers’ strength even more and print freight labels automatically, as you don’t have to manually book transport and print the correct label for your shipment.

 

How it works

You define your shipping rules directly in Consignor, e.g. “pick the cheapest shipping option”, “allocate specific shipments to a certain carrier” etc. You can combine your rules as it suits your business best. Consignor looks into your rules to pick the right delivery method for each shipment before printing the shipping label. This way you avoid wondering whether you picked the right shipping option. Instead Consignor automatically picks the best shipping option every time. Consignor Shipping Rules is basically an XML file containing your rules and preferences. This XML file can be placed on whatever configuration level you think is best and you can use different rules for different locations or shippers. You can always modify your rules – either by yourselves or with some help from our Customer Service department.
