Please note: This support guide requires the Neto Ship module from the Addon store.
A manifest is a document that is made up of one or more shipping consignments. The manifest contains information that is used by the carrier to invoice you for freight services, and also to track the delivery of consignments. Manifests are automatically created for a carrier when a relevant consignment is generate for an order.
Best practice is to submit your manifest only after the goods have been accepted by the carrier. Submitting a manifest is not a method of alerting the carrier that a pick up is required, so you will still need to book pickups in your usual manner.
