How do I specify a what3words location?

You can specify a w3w_Symbol_RGB_Red.pngwhat3words location in Delivery Manager for a consignment in one of two ways:

  • under the Delivery Manager Delivery tab when creating the order (refer to Creating a Delivery);

  • in the API call that creates the consignment (refer to the Properties needed to Call or Create a Consignment), e.g.

          <ser:despatchConsignmentWithBookingCode soapenv:encodingStyle="">
              <consignment xsi:type="typ:Consignment" xmlns:typ="urn:DeliveryManager/types">


If you wish to use w3w_Symbol_RGB_Red.pngwhat3words, you first need to check with Metapack that the feature is integrated with your selected carriers.
