Select Shipping Method


The shipping method is the detail tied to the transportation of the shipment, such as the carrier details.


Shipping method comes from Source Interface

The Ship Via field from your source interface, which contains carrier and service information, is mapped to StarShip by default. When you ship against a source interface document, those values will be translated to StarShip shipment field values and populate the Shipment tab. You can change this default mapping in Setup > Source Interface > Customize Interface.

How to change Ship Via mapping


Parcel or Freight Mode

StarShip has two modes :  Parcel and Freight. You can choose the mode you want to ship with using the Parcel and Freight buttons on the Ship screen.


You can also switch between Parcel and Freight during a shipment. Package and shipment values will be translated to the nearest possible values for the chosen mode. A setting in General Preferences allows you to set how packages are divided when you have multiple items packaged across multiple (more than 1) packages, and you switch from Freight to Parcel.
