Assign a Different Carrier for an Order

  • Dark

Article Summary

You can assign orders to a carrier manually. For example, if Bringg is not able to find a carrier with the right skills.

Bringg can automatically assign orders to a Carrier using the carrier selector, ensuring every order is assigned in line with your business priorities and delivery strategy. Bringg can also assign an order to a different carrier if the first one can not deliver it. For example, if the carrier does not have a driver available to deliver within the order's time window.

If you implemented a hybrid delivery network, you can also manually assign an order to your Own Fleet to have Bringg automatically choose a driver for an order.

Before You Begin

  • Confirm you have a user of type dispatcher (or admin).
If you can't find a feature, ask your ops manager to add it or give you access by changing your permissions.
  • Set up alerts for situations that may require manual assignment. For example, if an order must leave the fulfillment center soon to arrive on time but Bringg did not assign a carrier. Learn more.
