How to Create and Configure Shipping Stations

Estimated reading time: 1 min


A Shipping Station is used to define the user’s warehouse Location and the type of printer and/or scale that will be used. Each user who will use the Shipping Station Interface to pack and ship packages must have a Shipping Station defined.

From the Shipping Setup, choose General in the Action Ribbon, and then choose Shipping Stations. You can alternatively search for Shipping Station List using the ‘Tell Me’ feature. This will open the Shipping Station list page.

Creating Shipping Stations

Click New to create a new Shipping Station.

This will open the Shipping Station Card where you will fill out the information about this specific Shipping Station.

Create the Shipping Station using the definitions below:

No. – Enter a code to identify the Shipping Station.

Description – Enter a description for the Shipping Station.

Location Code – Enter a Location Code. The Shipping Station Interface will only display pending shipments for the specified Location Code on the current Shipping Station’s list, though you can manually enter a document from another location.

Link Name – Enter the User Name of the user being assigned to this Shipping Station. When editing a Shipping Station, you can click the Use Current Station action in the ribbon to assign the current record to the current user or computer.

Shipping Scale Profile No./ Shipping Printer Profile No – In order to leverage the cloud-based printing and scale integration, you must first register for and download the ChargeLogic Shipping Client. Once that has been completed, you will setup the Scale and Printer Profiles, and then assign them here. For more information on this topic, please review the document ‘How to Configure Cloud Printers and Scales.’

Shipping Func. Profile No. – Select a Shipping Functionality Profile for the Shipping Station. The Functionality Profile dictates certain behaviors that can be applied to the Shipping Station.

Proxy Server – If a proxy server is required to access the Internet, enter the address and port number in the format IP Address:Port Number.

Once configured, you can begin using the Shipping Station Interface to pack, weigh, label and ship packages.
