We’re using the official Fedex and UPS carrier plugins to do our shipping, but neither seem to have the ability to add any extra information to the Label (and to Fedex).  Is it possible to enable a reference field or any of the other default fields Fedex offers for their shipments?  Currently only the tracking number and address information is on the label.  This makes it very difficult to match up actual invoice charges from Fedex to the Invoice of the Sales Order/Shipment.  Would this take a customization and is the code for the carrier plugins available anywhere?  Didn’t find the repository on the github page.

 

If not, is this something that the EasyPost integration will be able to do?  And is EasyPost as cheap as they appear to be?  From the website it looks like it is free for under 50000 labels a year..are there hidden fees that accumulate?  If not, we may start using it just to get International Shipment working in Acumatica as easily as the carrier plugins work for domestic!

 

Thanks!

You can use the Custom Ref Nbr. 1 and 2 fields (30 character limit for each) on shipment packages to have custom data printed onto the label.

Oh my...Thank you so much!!  So obvious in hindsight!

Thanks for the post!

 

I have a follow up question:  We want to find the best way to enter a sequential number in the “Custom Ref Nbr. 1” so we can track each box separately.  Is this a custom request or is this something built into Acumatica that can help us? 

 

Thanks in advance!
