Shipment templates are making it easier and faster for you to create shipments through Shipmondo.
Shipment templates can be found under Shipments > Templates.
A template contains i.a. the following information, that you can set up:
- Freight product
- Shipping agreement
- Number of parcels/colli in a shipment
- Weight of your shipments
- Additional services
Below is an example of a template for PostNord MyPack Collect, booking of one parcel in the weight class 5-10 kg.
If you're sending bicycles where a shipment may consist of e.g. 2 parcels, then you can set the number of colli to 2 on your template, under Parcel(s). Using this template will always book two shipments, and two shipping labels will be created for your shipments.
You can create as many shipment templates as you need.
Templates are used several places in Shipmondo. Here's an overview of how templates are used in Shipmondo and what they're being used for:

The customs form will automatically appear on the template, as soon as you choose a combination of carrier, sender and receiver country, where a customs declaration is required and supported at Shipmondo.
