How to create a Carrier Account with Blacks Transport

When looking to set up a new account with Blacks Transport, you will need to coordinate with your account manager, and you will need to set the below specific options:

 

Account Code - The account code will have been provided to you when your account was set up.  

Consignment Prefix - This will be the prefix received in the above email from the carrier

Reference Pools - Reference pools are utilised by MachShip in order to maintain a count on connotes, manifest and item numbers. The reference pool will ensure that each of those numbers is unique to what we have sent to the carrier previously. More information can be obtained on reference pools here.

 

To create the reference pool select the Create Carrier Reference Pool button at the bottom of the page. 

 

If you are creating a new account, then the Reference Pools will be set to the following fields:

Pool Name - Set as Blacks Transport Con Ref Pool <Account Code>
Minimum Value - 1
Maximum Value - 999999 (that is six 9's)
Next Available Reference -  1
Cyclical - No

It will appear as below:


Once created, it will appear in the drop-down below:

 

Once done, click on the Save Carrier Account button.

TEST:

Once the account has been set up and all of the rates have been added, you will need to run a test to ensure that upon go-live, everything will run successfully. To do this, create a consignment - please make Reference 1 and Reference 2 and the delivery special instructions THIS IS A TEST. Once this has been created please manifest the consignment to the carrier. If you experience any issues please contact support@machship.com.

If you receive a successful manifest message from MachShip, please email your account manager and advise that you are starting to despatch your Blacks Transport account through MachShip and that you would like to receive verification that the job has been successfully received. 

Advise your account manager of the connote number and request that they should cancel this to ensure that you are not charged. Please cc integrations@machship.com on this email so we can help if required. 

On confirmation from the support team that the setup is validated, you are free to begin to consign.
