How to Generate a Shipment Manifest

You are here:

You can generate a shipment manifest from within Dynamic Ship per carrier per day. You can use this manifest to verify the packages that are set to leave your warehouse.

A carrier manifest can only contain posted shipments for the same day and must be generated daily prior to the truck arriving for pickup. You can add past shipments to a generic manifest and leave unprinted so that they are consumed; the past shipments do not show up as available when generating a new manifest.

Settings:

  • Set up users in Warehouse Employees with warehouse (location) access.
  • Set up users in Insight Works Users to Manage License Plates.

  1. Navigate to Dynamic Ship Shipment Manifest List.

  6. Select license plates that you want to manifest.
  7. Select Release from the Process menu (if you receive an error, see below).

Known Potential Errors

  • Unable to create manifest. 1 of the specified shipments were not found: shp_xyz123

USPS manifests all shipments at 17:00 PST. Shipments after 17:00 PST cannot be manifested by the system. You must remove them from the manifest to continue. Do not rely on the auto manifesting as you cannot retrieve the corresponding manifests. You can attempt to avoid this by selecting only shipments from the current day, not previous ones.
