The integration setup between MachShip and Capital Transport involves the booking of consignment via an API call. Tracking functionality has then been enabled for all MachShip clients without the need to provide any credentials.
As a result, all that needs to be provided for the specific options for Capital Transport is the Account Code.
Please note that the sync jobs and get prices flags have been set up for a specific account type integration with Capital Transport. If you have not been advised to set these as Yes, please leave them all as No.
Once the carrier account has been set up and all the rates are added, you will need to run a test to ensure that upon go-live, everything will run successfully. To do this, create a consignment - please make Reference 1 and Reference 2 and the special instructions for the pickup and for the delivery to THIS IS A TEST. Once this has been created it will automatically manifest the consignment to the carrier. If you experience any issues please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you receive a successful creation message from MachShip then please call Capital Transport and advise that you are starting to despatch your Capital Account through MachShip and that you would like to receive verification on the test file (please provide them with the job number). Also, advise them that this is just a test and that you require the job be canceled so that you are not charged and the driver doesn't arrive. Please cc email@example.com on this email so we can help if required.
On confirmation from Capital that the setup is validated, you are free to begin to consign.
