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 Outwards consignments, the Origin address will be the warehouse you're picking goods from. The Destination address will be the Consignee that is receiving them.

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 outwards consignments, you can change the Destination address at any point (Consignee). The Origin address (the warehouse) may only be changed if there are no products added to the consignment yet.
