Configuring Service Criteria

When creating a service, you can specify a set of criteria that must be fulfilled to be able to select that service for use. Several different types of attributes can be chosen, and you are not limited to only selecting one type of criteria. You can add as many variables as you want, which means you can create a completely customised service.

There are many options available to use as criteria such as the value of a parcel, the dimensions or the weight. You are also able to specify attributes such as Fragile, Perishable and Hazardous which means you can create a custom service condition for many different types of parcels.

Shipmate - Your Account - Configuring Delivery Service Criteria

Configuring Service Level Agreements (SLA) Targets

As a Shipmate customer, a carrier will make an agreement with you where they promise to deliver a certain percentage of the parcels you send on time. This percentage can be entered in the ‘Service Level Agreement’ section when creating a new Delivery Service.

Configuring Delivery Costs

The delivery cost is the price that is charged to the customer by the carrier. You can change this amount in the ‘Delivery Cost’ section when setting up a new Delivery Service.

Shipmate - Your Account - Configuring Delivery Costs

Configuring Service Keys

A service key is a unique key used to identify a specific service and can be used when importing parcels from third party applications to specifically select a carrier and delivery service without using routing rules. This can be found in the ‘Service Details’ section of the Delivery Service set up.

Custom Parcel Attributes

Custom Parcel Attribute Data Types

If you wish to create a parcel attribute that isn’t already defined in Shipmate, then you can add your own custom parcel attributes for use on your parcels. Accessing this can be done by clicking on your name in the right hand side of the Action Bar, selecting the settings option and navigating to ‘Custom Parcel Attributes’ in the right hand menu.

Custom Parcel Attributes are used to supply custom information to invoke specific Routing Rules.

There are several different data types for custom attributes:

  • Numeric
  • Text
  • Boolean (True or False)
  • Boolean (Yes or No)
  • Boolean (0 or 1)
  • List

These describe how you will use the attribute when creating a parcel.

Adding Custom Parcel Attributes

To add a custom parcel attribute, select ‘Create Custom Parcel Attribute’ in the ‘Custom Parcel Attributes’ section of the Settings menu. Here you can assign a name and a data type to the attribute and save it for use on parcels.

Routing Rules

How Routing Rules Work

Routing Rules are a way of automating your parcel labelling. Shipmate will choose the most appropriate carrier and delivery service based upon rules chosen by you. If you have multiple rules, Shipmate will evaluate each consignment against each rule and then determine the most suitable service automatically, meaning you no longer have to select a service for each individual parcel.

The rules must be active for Shipmate to be able to evaluate them, so make sure to turn on any rules you wish to use. By default, any new rules you create will be inactive until you are happy that they are correct.

Routing rules will be evaluated from top to bottom, so if the first rule fails then the next rule will be evaluated until there is a rule that matches the parcel.

Creating Routing Rules

The Routing Rules menu can be accessed by clicking on your name in the right hand side of the Action Bar and navigating to the ‘Settings’ option. On the right hand side you will find a menu with several different options. To create a Routing Rule, select ‘Routing Rules’ from the side menu then click ‘Create New Rule’.

Here you can name your rule, give it a description and choose criteria that the parcel needs to adhere to.

Shipmate - Your Account - Creating Routing Rules
Hover
Shipmate - Your Account - Creating Routing Rules

Using Custom Routing Rule Criteria

If you don’t want the rule to apply to every parcel, you can create a rule which only applies to parcels of a specific criteria. Similar to creating Service Condition Criteria, you can specify rules for parcels of different dimensions, weights and values as well as special parcels that could be fragile or perishable. If you have already configured Custom Parcel Attributes, you may also select the values for these attributes required to match your criteria.

Order File Mappings

You can upload an order file from almost any platform to import your parcels into Shipmate. Simply download a file extract from your order processing system, choosing options that include a header row and output as a comma separated text, or CSV file.

To access the upload area, click the ‘Import’ button on the right hand side of the Main Menu bar, then simply upload your file by dragging it to the drop-zone area or by clicking the ‘Choose File’ button to find the file on your computer.

Your file will be checked to ensure it can be processed, then you can select the file type from a list of presets you have previously configured, or set up a new one.

Shipmate - Your Account - Order File Mappings

Supported File Types

Shipmate supports various types of file for importing Order Files. Shipmate natively supports Comma-Separated Value (CSV) file handling and allows you to easily configure data mappings, allowing Shipmate to handle your files correctly.

By arrangement, Shipmate can also support file types including XML, Plain Text File and JSON among others. If you wish to configure one of these file types, please contact support@shipmate.co.uk to arrange the implementation of a file importer. There may be a charge for this service.

Configuring a New Order File Mapping

An Order File Mapping is already configured as the ‘Default’ option for Shipmate.

When creating a new mapping, you need to match the columns on your text file with the fields Shipmate needs to process your orders and generate parcel labels.

Ensure each of the fields marked with a blue asterisk (*) are matched to a column from your file, then give the file type a name so you can easily select this type of file next time you use it. A good example might be “eBay Order File” or “Magento Orders”.

For any measurements, select the units that your import will be in. These values will be converted to generic Shipmate values (grams and centimetres).

Label Specifications

Printer Compatibility

Shipmate has been designed to work with almost any printer, including many of the popular thermal label printers by Zebra, Citizen, Toshiba and Honeywell.

If your label printer supports ZPL-II, this is the recommended method for printing labels. If not, Shipmate can also output labels in PDF format for printing on any supported printer, including standard laser and inkjet printers.

Labels for most carriers are in the standard 6x4 inch format, so please ensure you use suitable media in your printer.

Methods of Generating Labels and Sending Parcels

How Shipmate Handles Parcel Information

Parcel and Order Reference Numbers

Shipmate requires a unique reference for each of your parcels and orders in order to help reconcile them in your account. Most order systems will generate a sequential unique number for each of your orders and be capable of outputting unique references for each parcel.

Throughout Shipmate you may discover Order and Consignment references - these are the same thing. Parcel references are for each individual parcel within a consignment should there be more than one. For example if your order / consignment reference is 123456 and comprises two parcels, you may have parcels with references 123456-01 and 123456-02.

Required Details

The following details are required to create a parcel label inside Shipmate:

  • Unique Parcel and Order Reference
  • Delivery Name
  • Delivery Address
  • Town/City
  • Postal Code
  • Country
  • Weight
  • Dimensions (width, depth, height)
  • Contents value

Contents Properties

It is sometimes necessary to declare the type of contents inside a parcel, to ensure the correct delivery service is selected. Default properties you can choose from include Fragile, Perishable and Hazardous. While optional, these properties should be selected in the circumstances where they should be used for compliance reasons and to meet your obligations under contractual agreements with the carriers.

Custom Parcel Attributes

If you have configured your account to accept Custom Parcel Attributes, you can add them when entering your parcel details. The information entered may then be used to route your parcel according to predetermined routing rules.

Providing Parcel Information

The parcel information screen will ask you to provide various details about the parcel such as its dimensions, value and weight. You can also specify if there are any special properties about the contents of the parcel. If you have defined any custom parcel attributes, these will be available for selection as well.

This information will be used in the later stages to recommend you a Carrier and Service which fits the parcels requirements.

Shipmate - Booking Individual Parcels - Providing Parcel Information

Providing Recipient Details

As part of the label generation service, the recipients details will need to be provided. This includes the usual name and address as well as optional contact details.

Currently parcels can only be delivered within the United Kingdom.

Printing Labels using Shipmate WebPrint™

Our WebPrint™ technology connects your printer with web and mobile applications that integrate with Shipmate, meaning you can print labels in the correct format easily and without having to use the print dialogue each time. Compared with printing labels manually, it works like magic and saves you a huge amount of time and reduces potential for error.

If you wish to print labels using the Shipmate Windows app, there is a dedicated guide to help you through this process. You can find this at shipmate.co.uk/guides/windows-application.

Searching for Parcels

How to Search for Parcels

After you have been using Shipmate for a while, there is no doubt that you will have a lot of parcel data within your account. We have added a search feature for this reason so you are able to locate your parcels with ease.

To access the search feature, click on the ‘Parcels’ tab on the left hand side of the Main Menu. To the right of the page you should see a button with a magnifying glass on it. Clicking on this will reveal the ‘Advanced Parcel Search’ section where you can input information such as the Parcel Reference, Recipient Name, Address and Date Range.

These fields don’t need to take in the complete query as the search feature will return all parcels matching the search criteria. If you are not sure of the full parcel reference for example, just put in everything you do know and Shipmate will return a full list of all matching parcels.

The more information you give to the search, the narrower the results will be.

Cancelling Deliveries

How to Cancel a Delivery

If for any reason you wish to cancel the delivery of a parcel, you can do this by clicking on ‘View’ in the parcel information section of the consignment details, or by clicking on the parcel reference in the main ‘Parcels’ view. At the bottom of the screen in ‘Parcel Options’ there will be an option to cancel the delivery.

You can also use the menu on the right hand side of each parcel, and directly select ‘Cancel Delivery’. This will ask you for confirmation that you really want to cancel the parcel. If you cancel the parcel, it will not be delivered and you will not be able to see any information relating to that parcel. You will have to re-create the parcel if you change your mind and want to send it again.

You can only cancel deliveries that have not yet been advised to the carrier or collected from you.

Parcel Delivery Tracking

How Shipmate Tracks Parcels

Shipmate regularly polls the carriers integrated with your account for the tracking information of your current parcels. The orders will automatically update their status so you can easily keep track of your parcels as they make their way to the customer.

Shipmate Tracking Stages

Shipmate shows 5 different tracking stages in the ‘Parcel Details’ screen. You can access this by clicking on the menu to the right of the parcel and selecting ‘View Parcel’.

The tracking status section shows the 5 different parcel states:

  • Label Created
  • Manifested
  • Collected By Courier
  • In Transit
  • Delivered

These steps are also shown on the main ‘Parcels’ screen. If you hover over the ‘Tracking Status’ section for each parcel, it will display the tracking stage that the parcel has reached.

Shipmate - Tracking Deliveries

Shipmate - Tracking Deliveries

Viewing Detailed Tracking Events

Detailed tracking events are available to view by clicking on the menu to the right of the parcel and selecting ‘View Parcel’. In the ‘Parcel Information’ section there will be a recap of what has happened to the parcel so far. The recap will show what event happened, what date it happened on and what time it happened, along with a description of the event.

Shipmate - Viewing Detailed Tracking Events

Delivery Warnings

Shipmate can alert you when there are issues with your deliveries in transit, such as delays or failed deliveries. This helps you provide a more proactive customer service by bringing the troublesome deliveries to your attention, rather than you having to find them or wait for your customer to complain.

Delivery warnings are generated regularly based on tracking event data we receive from carriers and appear as notifications in the Delivery Warnings box in the Action Bar. Similar to Notifications, this appears as a red dot over the warning triangle icon, badged with the number of unread delivery warnings since they were last viewed.

Clicking the Delivery Warnings button will take you to the Delivery Warnings screen, where you can view each delivery and the reason behind the warning in greater detail. Each time you view the Delivery Warnings screen any new delivery warnings will be marked as read automatically

Reporting

Reporting

There are two types of reports that Shipmate can generate - a Parcels report and a Carrier Performance report. You can access the reports from the ‘Reports’ section in the header.

Shipmate - Reporting

Parcels Report

The parcels report allows you to see parcels that fit a specific search criteria. You can search for parcels using the Parcel Reference, Recipient Name, City, Postcode or a specific Date Range or any combination of the 5 options.

Shipmate searches for any parcels meeting all of the criteria that is set, so if you provide a surname and a postal code, Shipmate will return a list of all parcels with the given surname and postal code. This helps you narrow down potentially large results.

Shipmate - Reporting

Carrier Performance Report

The carrier performance report is filtered on a month-by-month basis. The main dashboard for the carrier performance page will show you each carrier and an overview of the current SLA they have with you, how many days the SLA has been met and the overall performance.

If you click the ‘View’ menu for a carrier you can look at All Parcels and parcels both in and out of SLA. Once in this view, you can apply filters to the reports allowing you to broaden and narrow your search as you see fit.

The carrier-specific view gives a more detailed look into the performance of the carrier. You can see information such as how many parcels have been sent with the carrier, how many of these were within or outside of the SLA and what the longest and shortest delivery times have been.

Systems Integration

CSV File Imports

You can upload a CSV file from almost any platform to import your parcels into Shipmate. Simply download a file extract from your order processing system, choosing options that include a header row and output as a comma separated text, or CSV file.

To access the upload area, click the ‘Import’ button in the top right of the Main Menu, then simply upload your file by dragging it to the drop-zone area or by clicking the ‘Choose File’ button to find the file on your computer.

Your file will be checked to ensure it can be processed, then you can select the file type from a list of presets you have previously configured, or set up a new one.

Windows Application

The Shipmate Windows App allows you to quickly and easily integrate your Warehouse or Order Management System and your label printer with Shipmate. This companion app works in the background and has a number of useful features to help you get the most out of Shipmate and easily generate labels in a fast-paced despatch environment.
