Each consignment has a journey that it travels to the final destination, and in Consignly this is the Route.
The Route a consignment takes is important for a number of reasons but primary the route enables Consignly to determine which localities the destination sits within and therefore which freight rates apply for the journey.
How do Routes work?
Routes are established during creation of a consignment when you need to enter an Origin and Destination Address.
For Inwards consignments, the Origin address will be where the goods are coming from (perhaps the Client Partner's manufacturing plant, or the local port if it is a container). The Destination address will be the warehouse where you intend to store the goods.
The route card in a consignment
You can also optionally select a Carrier for the Consignment which will be used to resolve freight rates when transporting with that carrier.
Changing the route
If you have permissions, you can edit the route for a consignment. For Inwards consignments, you can change the Origin address at any point. You can only change the Destination address (the warehouse) if you haven't added any product lines to the consignment yet. As soon as product is added, that product is used in reports for that warehouse.
