Configuring your Default Warehouse

This section takes you through the configuration of the initial warehouse that was set up for you.

Note

The term 'warehouse' in Delivery Manager might refer to a store or third party logistics provider - i.e. any location from which you are shipping orders.

Preparation

Log into the Delivery Manager Delta environment using the Administrator Login and Password that were generated when your account was set up. Only once your configuration is working satisfactorily in the Delta environment, should you copy it to your own Production environment.

  3. Provided that no consignments have yet been allocated, you can modify the Warehouse Code and Warehouse Name if required.

  4. Verify the Warehouse Details and ensure that you specify the days on which carriers can collect from the warehouse, and add the dates of any holidays when collections will not be possible. This allows the Allocation engine to exclude the associated carrier services on the days when the warehouse is closed.

  5. Click Save at the top of the screen.

Note

If you need to create further warehouses, refer to Adding Warehouses.

If you require a different location to be the default from where you ship, refer to Changing your Default Warehouse.
