Customer shipment notifications that come from FreightPOP
When shipping to your customer and they are paying the charges via collect or 3rd party, you can now save those account details in the account book in FreightPOP.
You can access this when shipping and selecting the recipient or 3rd party. You will see a blue button labeled “Accounts” in the account details window.
Expanded List of Truckload Accessorials
From within your documents and labels tab of your company page, you can customize the message at the bottom of your packing slip and invoice.
Insert Dimensions into your BOL
You can now insert the dimensions of your shipments into your BOL
Print Parcel Return Labels
There is a checkbox in the SHIP FROM address form that you can now check off so our system can auto-generate a return label for you to include at the time of shipping
We have added a safeguard so you don’t accidentally cancel a shipment that was processed. Before canceling a shipment, the system now asks you to enter the email of the user you are logged in as. This helps avoid mistakes and provides traceability of who canceled certain shipments.
We have made it easier for you to create new users by cloning current ones and copying all of the settings from those current users.
Import or add any shipment not processed via FreightPOP to view in your in-transit report until its delivered.
Quoting and Shipping Rules:
You can set up rules to apply during the quoting and shipping process. The rules can be set up at the user level in the user manager window. See the various rules you can set below:
You are now able to set the default for the weight in your quote and shipping screens. You can set it as per piece/ package or as a total for all the packages.
You are now able to pass the inner pieces of a pallet to LTL carriers. If you always ship the same inner pieces, you can set defaults per user in the User Manager window.
Prompt user to enter PRO number:
In the company page, you can set a rule to ask the system to prompt the user to enter a PRO for carriers that do not provide them while processing the shipments.
This works great if you have books of PROs from carriers. Even if you only have it for a few carriers, turning on this option helps.
