A manifest is a shipment document that some carriers require for the transport of goods. You can also create a manifest for the shipment of multiple parcels rather than creating an individual one per parcel.
To be able to manifest please contact Temando to activate this for you. Some carriers will require a Permanent Pickup arrangement if you have manifesting turned on, we can arrange this for you.
Creating a Manifest
Login to your Temando Dashboard and go to the Manifest Section of your Dashboard.
To create a manifest (for that day’s bookings) select the below options
- Ready Date
- Label Format
(If you select Draft Only it will show you the data for the manifest but will not send information across to the carrier. If you select Confirm Manifest, it will confirm the manifest and send the information across to the carrier)
Once you have filled in all the relevant fields select Create Manifest which will generate the manifest document to either check or print (depending on whether you selected draft or confirm)
Links will appear to give you access to this documentation:
If you selected Draft Only to check the manifest and wish to now confirm. Simply click the checkbox next to Confirm Manifest and select Confirm Manifest.
To generate a manifest from a previous day, change the Manifest Option to Get a Previous Manifest and select Retrieve Manifest, completing the same details as above to generate.
