Upload Carrier Codes

In your DropStream account settings, you can upload a list of the required carrier codes (shipment codes) that are used by your warehouse.


Note: For some Warehouse Management Systems, DropStream will automatically load the default carrier codes for you. Otherwise, you should upload them manually. In either case, you can edit your carrier codes at any time, as described below.
