How to set up the Ratecard:
Phoenix Transport are configured to price off the Carriers System and as such you will need to extract and upload the ratecard in the below format. This will contain all the available services for the Phoenix Transport local movements.
1. Set your Account Code in the Ratecard section or as per your preference as its a free text field.
2. Please set the From zone and To zone as required
Note: Only add the available services provided/assigned to you by Phoenix Transport.
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 job and type in the Reference 1, Reference 2 and the Delivery Special Instructions as THIS IS A TEST. Once this has been created it will be booked in with the carrier.
If you receive a successful manifest message from MachShip then please send an email to the Phoenix Transport Team (reference emails: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, KShaw@phoenixtransport.com.au) and advise them that you are starting to despatch your Phoenix Transport account through MachShip and that you would like to receive verification on the test file and permission to start to trade.
Please include the job number and request that they should cancel this to ensure that you are not charged. Please CC: firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
