  • Integration with Convey. To learn more see this article.
    • Using the Convey platform, suppliers create the shipment, select the cheapest carrier, schedule the shipment, and retrieve Bill of Lading. The process is as follows:
      • Step 1: Order is Created from the Retailer – The order will get created using the Logicbroker (LB) API, this will contain all standard PO information. Logicbroker will set up validation rules for the retailer to provide all required information to properly create a shipment.
      • Step 2: Supplier Creates the Shipment in Logicbroker – We will use the POST /shipment/v1/shipment endpoint to create the data in Convey. Once the response is retrievedconvey_Logo_600px the order will get updated with available carriers. Logic can be entered in our system to enforce a carrier based on price or transit days.
      • Step 3: Quote Shipment is Created – Once the shipment is created, the quote will get created using the Id received from creating the shipment. Based on the response Logicbroker will automatically choose the rate with the lowest “total_net_charge”.
      • Step 4: Schedule Shipment – Based on the carrier result chosen from the previous step the schedule request will get created. All information related to the shipment will update on the shipment document in Logicbroker. This includes:
        • Instructions
        • tracking_number
        • bill_of_lading_number
        • reference_number
        • pickup_confirmation_number
      • Step 5: Shipment Information is Sent to Retailer – With all information provided from the response of the Schedule Shipment, we can transmit to retailer in all standard Logicbroker formats. This will include API, CSV, XML, EDI, JSON, Flat File, or system integration (OMS, ERP, Marketplace, etc).
