Once this has been created please manifest the consignment to the carrier. If you experience any issues please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you receive a successful manifest message from MachShip then please send an email to email@example.com and advise their team that you are starting to despatch your Hunter Express account through MachShip and that you would like to receive verification on the test file and permission to start to trade. Please include the label pdf's for the manifest and the connote.
