The MyParcel.com carrier library allows you to add you own carrier contracts into the system and allows your company and your clients to use various shipping services offered by carriers.

You can add multiple carrier contracts included those offered by your wider professional network, as well as your clients.


📘 How to add a new carrier contract

  1. An active contract is the connection between the MyParcel.com API and the API of the chosen carrier

  2. A newly created contract needs to have services and rates added to it

  3. Broker contracts can be assigned to all organisations

  4. Organisation contracts are owned by the shipper

  5. Create multiple contracts for different rate tiers or ad-hoc requirements

Create contract

The contract form opens up with a series of fields that need to be completed - all fields marked with an asterisk are mandatory.

Once the carrier is selected the Credentials section will expand with the relevant required API credentials for the selected carrier.

Contract owner designations are as follows -
