ShipStation includes the ability to schedule a pickup for shipments that use certain carriers.
At this time, you can schedule pickups in ShipStation for the following carriers:
Once requested, you can also view, cancel, and resubmit the request directly in ShipStation.
Scheduling Pickups for Other Carriers
If you wish to schedule a pickup for shipments using other carriers, you must do so using the carriers' specified method.
You can now schedule a pickup for your DHL Express shipments directly in ShipStation. This provides the same functionality as the DHL website scheduler.
The Pickup option relies on the Time Zone set in the selected Ship From Location. If you have not set a Time Zone in your Ship From Locations, you may get an error when attempting to schedule a pickup in ShipStation.
Pickups scheduled through ShipStation are free for DHL Express via ShipStation Carrier Services.
If you ship via a private DHL Express account, you may incur a pickup fee using the steps listed below.
To schedule a pickup for your DHL Express shipments:
Select DHL Express from the Schedule a Pickup drop-down menu.
This option will only be available if a DHL Express is set up in your ShipStation account.
Fill in the required information: Ship From location, the primary contact for this shipment, date of pickup, and time frame.
Click the Schedule Pickup button to submit the pickup.
The Pickup Date will default to the next day so you might not see any Open Shipments listed right away. To view open shipments, change the Pickup Date to match the Ship Date on the labels.
