Big Grin PACKAGE TRACKING AND FREIGHT IMPORT
it would be nice if weberp there would be a screen with package freight cost and tracking information that could be imported to an sales order if shipped by ups or other shipping logistic or entered later by a user

RE: PACKAGE TRACKING AND FREIGHT IMPORT
Can you expand on your requirements a bit? Maybe a specification for how you see it working?

RE: PACKAGE TRACKING AND FREIGHT IMPORT
if a package was shipped by ups, fedex, postal mail, truck line, or a delivery service the shipping company would provide a tracking number for each package shipped those tracking numbers would be imported to "the package tracking screen" that would show the tracking number to staff, so if the customer had an inquiry about the shipment. also if the packages were shipped ups/fedex the tracking number would be imported along with the freight of each package. I do understand that a program would need be to automatically send info from the ups/fedex manifest to weberp, but could be manually entered by weberp user. as i used to work for a company that used a paid erp program and used ups to ship packages and when the order was process by ups system they would use a program by ups to import tracking+fright to the company's erp system+ when the order was scanned in ups manifest by the barcode it would pull up customer name address.

RE: PACKAGE TRACKING AND FREIGHT IMPORT
This would specific to whichever carrier... you would need to query the shipper's API with the weight and cubic measurement from webERP and fire this off to get the freight cost and place the freight PO with the carrier ... then insert into a Freight line in the webERP order and populate the consignment note field in the debtortrans table and process the order/invoice ...
All possible - but would need to be done for each carrier.

RE: PACKAGE TRACKING AND FREIGHT IMPORT
We already have shipper specific billing information in FreightCosts.php so it should be possible to expand on that.

RE: PACKAGE TRACKING AND FREIGHT IMPORT
