Connect to Shipping Brokers and manage Waybills in Dynamics 365 Business Central
The Shipping Manager app not only enables you to create waybills and connect to shipping brokers to arrange shipping with freight forwarders and get the best price for each parcel. It also allows you to calculate weight, dimensions, size, and volume as well as tariffs.
You create a waybill for each delivery address, and you may add multiple types of predefined packages (like boxes, pallets or containers) to the waybill.
You can request offers from delivery brokers, like Consignor, Webshipper or Shipmondo, but you may use any broker you like. You can select the best offer from the freight forwarders (shipping agents) and let the system arrange the pickup.
You then receive a label, you can print and put on the parcel, and the label of course depends on which freight forwarder you have selected in each case.
The label and the track & trace number is saved on the waybill in Business Central, from where you can also manage the status of the waybill, the shipping details etc.
You can assign a pickup-number to each waybill. This is information for the freight forwarder. It allows you to assign a waybill to a specific pickup, and then the freight forwarder knows exactly which parcels to pick up.
The Shipping Manager can also be configured to arrange shipping directly with your preferred freight forwarder – without using a shipping broker.
For more complex situations, you may embed waybills into other waybills. This allows you to pick items to a box, add multiple boxes to a pallet, add multiple pallets to a container, and finally ship the container.

CALCULATE WEIGHT AND MEASURES ON DOCUMENT
Required for calculating weight on the documents, the weight and measurements fields should be filled out on the Item Unit of measure card. The Shipping Manager extends these fields to be more extensive.
On order lines weight fields are automatically added and calculated both based on “Quantity to ship” and for the “total line” quantity.
When the order is ready for shipment, a total calculation for the order can be performed.
