Creating Shipments

Shipments can be created either manually or automatically on FleetRunnr based on your preferences.

(Below describes the manual creation process of shipments)

Create Pickups

To create pickups, first visit the shipments page on your fleetrunnr portal and click on the pickups section. (https://app.fleetrunnr.dev/shipments/pickups).

On the top right corner, click on [Create Pickups], and the list of eligible orders becomes visible.

Choose which location you would like to perform pick ups to and view only the eligible orders based on location coverage area and functions.

Choose which orders you would like to create pickup shipments for, using filters, then click on [Create].

Note that, you only see orders that require a pick up. ( based on constraints )

Constraints:

  • Shipping Methods

  • Location Coverage Area

  • Location Functions

Constraint 1, Shipping Methods: imagine you have 2 orders, one having a shipping method being on-demand and the other standard. The on-demand order doesn’t require a pickup, you can directly create a delivery shipment. The standard order on the other hand, requires a pickup shipment since it passes through sorting facilities, before a delivery shipment can be created.

Constraint 2, Location Coverage Area: only view orders having their source locations fall within the geographic coverage area of a chosen location ( warehouse/hub).

Constraint 3, Location Functions: Only see locations with functions to perform Pickups.
