The Averitt Express Module supports LTL and LTL Guaranteed Delivery shipments to the US (including Puerto Rico) and Canada. Rating and tracking can be done via the internet.
In order to ship with StarShip using your Averitt account, you will need to contact Averitt to receive an API Key. This API Key is entered during setup along with your Account Number and other account information.
StarShip versions prior to v20.4 required the Account Number, User Name, and Password. The API Key is needed for StarShip v20.4 and higher; if you are an existing user, you will need to go back into Averitt Setup and re-add your account using your API Key.
Averitt Express setup is accessible from Setup > Carrier Interface > Averitt Express. For instructions on adding a Averitt Express account, see Account Setup.
The Main tab consists of two general Averitt Express settings that you can configure :
The Carriers tab will only show Averitt Express as a supported carrier. Entries cannot be added or deleted.
The Averitt Express Interface must have at least one default account to be available for shipping. Accounts are set up per Location.
Follow these steps to set up an Averitt Express account.
This section allows you to change specific settings for the listed accounts. If you set up multiple accounts, you can maintain different settings for each account. To change settings for accounts, click on the account and then make your changes by selecting from the drop-down lists.
