Automatically Create Royal Mail Manifests

Sometimes it's easy to forget to create Royal Mail manifests, especially if you've already created one for orders shipped earlier that day!

Veeqo will now take care of this by automatically creating Royal Mail manifests at 11pm every day. This way you can be reassured that these un-manifested packages won't get lost or delayed as they make their way to your customers.

Prevent Shipping Zero Weight Orders With Royal Mail

Veeqo allowed you to ship using Royal Mails service "INTL BUS PARCELS TRACKED COUNTRY PRICED" without setting a weight. This would result in Royal Mail having to update your Royal Mail invoices to be charged correctly.

To avoid issues with billing Veeqo will prevent you from shipping without setting a weight.

UPS WorldWide Economy Express

UPS WorldWide Express Economy is a service that allows you to group multiple shipments going to the same country together. This can save you money if you frequently ship lots of items to the same destination.

Note: This service is only supported when using your own UPS account. It is not available using Veeqo's UPS Discounted Rates. It is also only supported when shipping individual orders and not on the bulk shipping screen.

Internaltional DHL Returns Labels

For destinations that don't support paperless trade documents the DHL Express return label would fail to generate. To solve this we now use the following services as standard for any DHL Express return label created in Veeqo

  • Domestic Returns - Cheapest service
  • Europe Returns - Express Europe
  • Worldwide returns - Express WorldWide

For more information on creating Returns labels in Veeqo using DHL Express check out This Guide.

Avoid Multiple Allocations by Default

Veeqo makes allocation more seamless.

By default, Veeqo now assumes retailers will ship goods allocated from the same warehouse in the same package.

Inventory will now automatically be added to one allocation per warehouse. This enables you to ship all goods in one package without the manual effort of changing allocations.

How does it work?

  • If this applies to your business, no further action is required. Keep the checkbox checked (in red below) when allocating inventory to an order.
  • If you would like to split a shipment across multiple packages, you can uncheck the checkbox. Please see this guide for more details.


Multi-Piece Shipments - Saved Package Beta

For some carriers you can ship multiple parcels to the same customer for a cheaper rate than creating individual shipments.

For those who are already on the Saved Packages beta we are starting to role out the option to create these multi-piece shipments.

You'll be able to choose from any of the carrier or custom packages you have saved, or enter custom dimensions and weights for each additional package.


Include UPS Bulk Shipping On Carrier Report

UPS shipments that have been created by bulk shipping are also included on the Carrier Report. This helps improve the accuracy of the report so you can gain better insights on how much your company is being charged by each carrier over time.

To check it out head to Reports>Carrier Shipments.

Amazon Logistics Label Failing To Generate

When shipping some Amazon orders with Amazon Logistics (aka Buy Labels) the order would be marked as shipped but the label would not get generated. For these occasional orders the user would need to download the label from Amazon Seller Central, which added unnecessary delay to the shipping process.

Select Both Service & Package On Rules

With the Saved Package Beta you can now set both the carriers service and a specific package using rules. Previously you could set one or the other.

This gives you more control over how your orders should be shipped which can prevent mistakes at the packing station.

Head to Settings>Rules to start creating your new shipping rule.
