What is Purolator?
Purolator is one of Canada’s leading integrated freight, package and logistics solutions provider.
What does this integration include?
Manhattan Active Omni is not integrated with Purolator out of the box. This integration enables communication with Purolator by altering the base functionality in the following ways:
- Tracking Information – Request updated tracking information for packages in transit to the customer
- Return Label Generation
When a user completes a package in SI&F (Store Inventory & Fulfillment Module), a tracking number is assigned to the package in transit to the customer. This tracking number is stored on the order and displayed on the call center UIs to provide updated delivery information to the call center agent. SI&F makes a call to Purolator in the Purolator required format with the expected data, including a list of SI&F’s in transit tracking numbers, for Purolator to respond with the latest tracking information on each. Based on the response for each tracking number, SI&F makes corresponding updates to the tracking details on the order, in addition to updating the order to ‘Delivered’ status upon final confirmation of delivery.
When a return order is confirmed, MAO makes a return shipment request to Purolator and Purolator responds with a return tracking number. SI&F sends a subsequent request to Purolator using the tracking number provided in order to obtain the return label. The return tracking number is stored in MAO and the return label is stored in doc management to be retrieved by the external system sending the email to the customer. The customer prints the label and uses it to ship the product back to the return center.
