Hibou Odoo Suite: Inventory Modules: Partner Shipping Accounts: Partner Shipping Accounts - FedEx
The purpose of this documentation is to outline the use case and processes associated with Hibou's FedEx Partner Shipping Accounts module.
To get started, navigate to the Apps app.
Once there, remove the Apps filter and search for "Fedex Partner Shipping Accounts". When you're ready, click Install.
Good to Know!
The FedEx Partner Shipping Accounts module requires the base Partner Shipping Accounts module. However, if you do not already have this module installed Odoo will install it for you during this modules installation.
Navigate o the Contacts app.
Adding a FedEx Shipping Account to a Contact
If you've selected an existing record, click Edit.
This brings up the Create Shipping Accounts modal window where you'll complete the following fields:
Partner: This field will be auto-populated based on the contact record you just came from.
Description: Add reference information, if needed.
Account Num.: This field is required to be the FedEx standard 9 digits.
Carrier: Select FedEx from the dropdown menu.
Notes: If you'd like to add any notes about this account, you can do so here.
You'll also notice that now when you go to your shipping methods, you have the option to set values which would determine if your shipment would add Automatic Insurance or Require a Signature, if they are supported by your carrier. By setting a value on these fields, if a delivery is over the set amount, those options would automatically be included in the shipment.
Also, on your OUT transfers, in the Additional Info tab, we see the same fields. If a value is set on the shipping method, these will default to Automatic. If there is no value set on the shipping method, you can set them here on an as-needed basis for your shipments.
This module adds FedEx to delivery type selection dropdown on the Partner Shipping Account model. Additionally, it validates entered FedEx account numbers are the correct length.
