Corporate Office features a generic solution that allows any Third-Party Logistics Provider (3PL) to access and update shipping status.
With this automated SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) solution the 3PL can call to Corporate Office without the need of an API integration.
You simply set up your own SFTP hosted location and enter the credentials in Administration > Advanced Settings. Shipping status will be automatically sent to the SFTP sites via .CSV files, the 3PL will edit those files with shipping status, and then Corporate Office will edit the database with the new shipping statuses.
Important: Before starting this process, it is recommended to set up warehouses in both the live and the stage environments.
