Complete the following steps after WMS has been installed:

  1. Restart your environment.

  2. Using the Blue Yonder user interface, configure site-specific settings as follows:

  3. Test the integration.

Note

WMS supports only 10-character carrier names and service levels, so the cross reference allows the WMS values to be matched to the values defined by Metapack.

The Dummy Carrier is used on the outbound order together with the Service Group that is set up in the Metapack Shipping platform.

The Service Group determines which carriers and specific service levels will be used by the Shipping SOAP API to allocate a consignment with the best carrier.
