When setting up your client's profiles, you will have to choose in which way you want techShip to handle the boxes' information when imported.
TechShip has two available modes:
- Default mode: Imports the carton information exactly how it is in your WMS, and requires your orders to be packed there as well.
- Merge mode: Imports the carton information repacking everything in techShip into one single box, regardless if the orders are packed or not in the WMS. (The calculation is the following: we take all boxes from WMS, calculate the SUM of the weight of the boxes and apply it, yet the Length/Width/Height are not specified)
If you want to keep your orders' box information as is when importing, select Default mode.
If you are not packing your orders in your WMS, select Merge mode.
NOTE: Take into account that if you use Merge mode and you have several boxes in an order coming from your WMS, techShip will repack all of them in one.
To see how it's set, feel free to follow the step-by-step guide written below or the video guide, as you prefer:
