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 Point to Point consignments, the Origin address and Destination address can be any address you currently have recorded in Consignly.
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 Point to Point consignments, you can change the Origin and Destination addresses at any time.
