Carriers in Carrier Connect must first be configured under Master data – Carrier configurations before you can process their shipping orders, print their shipping labels, or complete their pickups.
- We recommend setting up a project with AEB to configure new carriers. If you wish to configure new carriers on your own in close consultation with AEB, you need the role I_CAI_SETUPCARRIERS. You can coordinate the process by submitting a request through the AEB Help Center.
