Return to: Delivery/Return Feature Set


At times Assets may be transferred to a customer or another location using a third-party common carrier, like UPS or FedEx.

TrackAbout supports this and allows customers to record the common carrier name and tracking number on either the Create Invoice/Order page of the website or with the Deliver action on the Handheld.

How Does it Work?

Common Carrier needs to first be set up by your TrackAbout Support team.

Once enabled, during Standard Delivery, you can scan the common carrier's tracking number. Each carrier has their own validation string stored in the DB, which is applied. Validation is also applied when tracking numbers are entered by keyboard and clicking Continue.
