Creating a shipment

Everything starts with the shipment

Creating a shipment is the starting point for everything which can be accomplished within Carrier Connect.
Using createShipment creates a shipment and returns a unique shipment number after successfully creating the shipment.
This shipment number can be used to reference the shipment when adding futher operations to the shipment later on.


However, createShipment also allows to create a complete shipment with packages, items, etc., set the shipment to 'complete' and request all related documents within one call!
This provides a quick and easy process if all necessary data is available before creating the shipment.
