Outgoing Warehouse Movements (Sale Orders) can be converted into Transport Jobs (Consignments) immediately upon packing completion (or even before they're packed).

This allows the Warehouse and Transport sides of CartonCloud to work together without the need for manual data entry or intervention.

Additionally, you can also set CartonCloud up to transfer Sale Order Product types to the Consignment as well as the Volume and Weight.

Enabling Consignment Generation from Sale Orders

To configure Sale Order Consignment Settings, navigate to Customers → { select the customer you want } → Edit.
Then click Warehouse Management → Sale Order and scroll down to the section labelled "Consignment"
