🎉 What’s new?
Up until now, the latest tracking status was integrated in the top part of the
Track & Trace Page
and was only visible by unfolding it manually. With the new design, the statuses are separated from the header and are displayed in an
intuitive and mobile friendly
way.

You can't see the new design yet? Then simply re-publish your Track & Trace page. You can do this by first un-publishing, then re-publishing the page.

⚙️ How to set it up?
In the Return settings, enable GLS NL and the new "Arrange a pick-up" method. And that's it!
Now in your Return Portal your customers can arrange pickups at their locations, instead of bringing parcels to service points.
And they won't need to print labels themselves - carriers will have them ready! 🤩
⚠️ Important
This feature is available only for domestic returns within the Netherlands. To enable it, you need to have a direct contract with GLS NL.

✨ New in: Checkout 👉 Nominated Day for International Shipping
new
🎉 What’s new?
You can now let your customers from abroad choose the date they will receive their orders!
Additionally, we added the possibility to set (or overwrite) the Transit Time (previously Lead Time). It comes in handy in two main scenarios:
  • when you want to use shipping methods we don't know the transit time of (eg. when you use direct contract),
  • when you know it takes longer for the carrier to deliver packages compared to what they state in their offering.
⚠️ Important:
For international delivery, carriers often define the transit time as a range, eg. between 2-3 days. In these cases, it's impossible to determine a specific day a package will be delivered.
Make sure to let your customers know it's the best estimation, but differences may occur.

Volumetric Weight is here! 🎉 Avoid unexpected carrier surcharges.
improved
Order Processing
API
All Plans
We can now tackle surcharges proactively and avoid those unexpected shipping fees.
For this, we are enabling you to fill in a parcel's
length
,
width
, and
height
.
Armed with this data, we can calculate the final billable weight up front, and show you only shipping methods that match that weight instead.
This way, you avoid using a shipping method that is based on the lower weight and avoid getting surcharged at the end of the month.
volumetric weight
Heads-up
  • Volumetric Weight is currently implemented only when the shipment is created manually (via the New Shipment form) or via API.
  • The dimension fields are currently mandatory for UPS and DHL Express only, as they are the carriers that invoice surcharges at the moment. For other carriers, these fields will remain optional.
Want to know more?
  • Learn all there is to know about volumetric weight and how it differs between carriers in this article.
