Primary Reference Type:
For certain carriers, MachShip is configured to utilise the internal reference known as the MachShip number as reference one. This is done for carriers to ensure
1. Known reference for invoice reconciliation
2. Known reference for tracking
This may affect how you are currently working with a carrier and as such if you wish to still use your reference please set the primary reference type as Customer Reference
Is exempt from item label duplication:
Note: This option is only available if you are using the new TGE Integration type (TGE Intermodal MyTGE Complete Integration)
Affixing 2 labels per pallet is a requirement by TGE so the system will generate 2 labels by default. However, if you only want to print 1 label for each item, you can set your account to be exempted from generating 2 copies of item labels.
To do this, you just need to set the below flag to "YES":
Once the account has been set up and all of the rates have been 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 delivery special instructions THIS IS A TEST. Once this has been created please manifest the consignment to the carrier. If you experience any issues please contact email@example.com.
If you receive a successful manifest message from MachShip then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and advise them that you are starting to despatch your Intermodal 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, the connote, and the items.
Advise the support team of the connote number and request that they should cancel this to ensure that you are not charged. Please cc email@example.com on this email so we can help if required.
On confirmation from the support team that the setup is validated, you are free to begin to consign.
