despatchConsignment

This allocation method creates a single consignment, allocates it using the allocation filter (refer to Allocating an individual Consignment for its use in the GUI), and returns Base64-encoded documentation.

This filter searches for carrier services using acceptable and unacceptable collection times, delivery times, carriers, service types, services, and carrier 'service groups', and by other miscellaneous options (e.g. scoring and PUDO radius).

Note

If the filter fails to find a suitable carrier for a consignment, then the consignment will still be created, but will remain in the Unallocated state. In case carrier services cannot be found, it is advisable to keep the number of consignments in the call to a minimum (e.g. no more than 30).

The filter can be used when you do not wish to specify a booking code, which is the recommended means of creating and allocating consignments (refer to createAndAllocateConsignmentsWithBookingCode).

How to submit a request

Proceed as follows:

  1. If you have not already done so, open a new project using the WSDL AllocationService.xml.

  2. Create a new request under despatchConsignment.

  3. Enter the authorisation for the request.

  4. Create a new single consignment. As a minimum, the following must be specified:

    1. The consignmentLevelDetailsFlag.

    2. The consignmentValue if the consignmentLevelDetailsFlag is set to true. However, if this flag is set to false, then the parcelValue is required instead (refer to the Parcels Array).

    3. The consignmentWeight if the consignmentLevelDetailsFlag is set to true. However, if this flag is set to false, then the parcelWeight is required instead (refer to the Parcels Array).

    4. The maxDimension if the consignmentLevelDetailsFlag is set to true. However, if this flag is set to false, then it is calculated automatically from the dimensions of each parcel (refer to the Parcels Array).

    5. The orderNumber.

    6. The parcelCount.

    7. 'n' items in the Parcels Array if 'n' is the parcelCount.

    8. The recipentAddress.

    9. The recipientName.

    10. The senderAddress.

    11. The senderCode.

    12. The senderName.

  5. Define the advanced allocation filter.

    Note

    If you omit the advanced allocation filter (by removing the entire <filter>...</filter> tag), then the default allocation filter will be assumed, which means that the allocation will be attempted in accordance with the following hierarchy:

    1. Prioritised service (if one has been selected automatically via the Carrier Allocation Rules).

    2. Shipping cost (the system will always try and select the cheapest service where there is no prioritised service).

    3. Earliest despatch (if two services cost the same, the one that leaves the warehouse first will be chosen).

    4. Earliest delivery (if two services cost the same and leave the warehouse at the same time, the one that can deliver first is selected),

  6. Set calculateTaxAndDuty to false.

  7. Enter the parameters for document generation.

  8. Click Arrow.png to submit the request.

You know that allocation has been successful once a carrier service has been returned. You can then verify the allocation in the GUI (refer to Allocating an individual Consignment).

Tip

If no carrier service is returned, then you can verify whether any carrier maintenance is required, by either using the GUI Why Not? function or the API Debug Service Methods.

Next Steps

You should confirm that the carrier information is as required for each allocated consignment, e.g.

  <carrierCode xsi:type="soapenc:string" xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">ROYALMAILTRKNOOBA</carrierCode>
               <carrierConsignmentCode xsi:type="soapenc:string" xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">9990000005751999</carrierConsignmentCode>
               <carrierName xsi:type="soapenc:string" xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">Royal Mail Tracked non-OBA</carrierName>
               <carrierServiceCode xsi:type="soapenc:string" xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">RMTRACKEDNDNOSIGRTN</carrierServiceCode>
               <carrierServiceName xsi:type="soapenc:string" xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">Tracked Returns 24</carrierServiceName>

If the carrier service is not the one required, then go to Cancel the Allocation. Otherwise, save the response to your database and go to Decode and Print the Labels and Customs Documents.

Note

There are carrier routing properties returned for each allocated consignment that can help you plan your deliveries and keep your consumers updated.

Cancel the Allocation

Either use the deallocate method, or use the GUI as follows:

  1. Log into the Delivery Manager Delta environment via the user account that was used to run the API:

    https://dm-delta.metapack.com/dm/ActionServlet?action=home
  2. Click Home and then select the Ready to manifest status, followed by Search.

  3. Find the required consignment using the newly generated carrierConsignmentCode, open the consignment, and then click Cancel Allocation:

  4. Once you confirm the deallocation, the consignment is moved to the Unallocated status.

Decode and Print the Labels and Customs Documents

The results are generated in up to two strings at the bottom of the response: a labels string containing the label(s) for each parcel, and a documents string containing the customs documents.

The strings are Base64-encoded, as in the example response above, where the strings have been truncated for aesthetic purposes.

To generate the labels or documents from the associated string, you need to copy and load the string into a Base64 decoder (e.g. https://www.base64decode.org/). Refer to Store the Paperwork and Print Later.
