With the module Carrier you can create pallet labels or forwarding bills for any forwarding agency, print them out and then report them to the forwarding agency with an advice or send them to the forwarding agency as a CSV file. The module supports SSCC's, BBD's and batches and you can, if necessary, create GS1 barcodes.
In addition to the interfaces to the known parcel service providers, you can store a shipping company under Administration > Settings > Fulfillment → Shipping methods → Carrier. This shipping method can then be selected in the order or delivery note as usual. You can find more information here.
In the Appstore you can find the Carrier module. In this module you can create delivery orders for the carrier company and store the essential characteristics regarding franking etc.. In the tab Open packages you can select the packages for a forwarding order to the forwarding company and then transfer them as CSV/PDF.
To add packages to a shipping order, you have two options in the Open packages tab.
To create a shipping order, first create a delivery bill with the shipping type "Shipping" (Warehouse & Logistics > Delivery bill > +NEW). Then switch to the Parcel Label tab and create the parcel labels by ticking CreateNVE. With each parcel label a forwarding order will be created in the forwarding module under open packages. You can see this in the column "NVE". Likewise, when you create a package tag, click on the NVEs button at the bottom right.
In the Completed Packages tab you will see an overview of all packages that you have previously added to a new or existing forwarding order in the Open Packages tab using the button at the bottom.

Via the PDF button you can print out the corresponding label using the printer spooler that appears afterwards. A click on the cross icon deletes or cancels the entry.

As a filter you can set Canceled, which will then show you only canceled packages.
