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.
Add or edit Carrier Codes
- In your DropStream Dashboard, click your Account Name, then click Account settings.
- Click the Warehouse Management System tab.
- Click Carrier Codes.
- Your current carrier codes are shown, along with their associated Carrier Name and Description:
- Carrier - the name of a postal carrier.
- Code - the carrier code taken from your WMS.
- Description - the description of the carrier code that explains what the code means.
- To edit or delete an existing carrier code, click Action next to the description of the code, and then select either Configure or Delete, respectively.
- To add new carrier codes one at a time, click Add carrier code.
- Then enter the values for carrier name, carrier code and code description, and click Save Changes.
- To add carrier codes in bulk, create a .csv file with the fields (Carrier, Code, Description) then click Import carrier codes to upload the file.
- In the dropdown menu under your file name, you can choose to Ignore existing mapping codes (if values in your CSV would conflict with an existing code), or to Overwrite them with your new values.
- Click Upload to submit your carrier codes to DropStream.
