New orders

Orders are the most important feature within the SolBox platform. Orders can be manually created as displayed below or imported, via a spreadsheet template  or any third-party API/Software.

Order types

There are 3 types of orders that SolBox can create include Pick-up, Delivery and Pick-up-Delivery. All orders need to be allocated to a manifest for fulfillment on the driver app, and any manifest can have a mix of all types of orders. 

1. Pick-up orders

2. Delivery orders

3. Pick-up and Delivery orders

When creating a pick-up and delivery orders, it will be a two leg job with the same order number. Pick-up- Delivery orders require the Pick-up to first be completed before the Delivery leg can begin.
