What should I include in my multiple shipments upload template?

Top tips for properly formatting your shipment sheet.

To help you get started, we created a simple template you can download.

Here's what you'll need to include:

  • Company or person’s name
  • Full address
  • Location open time
  • Location close time
  • Contact email
  • Contact phone
  • Cargo amount
  • Description
  • Weight

If you choose to create your own upload document, use each category as a column header. That way, the dashboard will be able to read your information in seconds. There are also optional headers you may want to use if they apply to any of your shipments.

Optional headers include:

  • Reference number
  • PRO number
  • Notes
  • Piece count type
  • Piece count quantity

Additional requirements:

  • Files must contain at least two shipments and 200 maximum.
  • Each shipment can contain up to 12 pallets and cannot exceed 10,000 lbs in total. Shipments exceeding 12 pallets or 10,000 lbs must be booked as separate shipments.

Whether you're booking a pick-up or delivery route, there's no need to include the Pick-up from or Deliver to location. You'll manually enter this in the dashboard at booking.

Tip: Accessorials also get added at booking, so there's no need to put them in the sheet. To learn more about accessorials for multiple shipments, check out this article.
