Delivery Manager will now allow you to notify your carriers of shipments requiring export licences (e.g. shipments with batteries).

This means that you will no longer need to create a direct integration with carriers to pass on customs brokerage information such as the ECCN (Export Control Classification Number) and HTS (Harmonized Tariff Schedule) code. They can instead be included on the label or manifest based on the carrier's standards.
