After you have successfully created and scheduled your consignment on Eshopbox, you need to deliver it to the Eshopbox fulfilment centre(s). In this article, you will learn how to deliver your consignments seamlessly at Eshopbox.
Step 1 - You plan the delivery of the consignment
While planning the delivery of your consignment, you need to be mindful of the following points.
Make sure to follow the Eshopbox product preparation guidelines while preparing your inventory for movement. This will ensure there are no discrepancies while receiving.
An inward consignment must be delivered on the scheduled date and time.
The entire consignment needs to be delivered in one batch. If the entire inventory is not ready, you can re-schedule the appointment, or cancel it and create a new consignment.
If you have updated any incorrect details, you should cancel it and create a new consignment with the details in the Eshopbox workspace.
You can use any transporter or third-party courier provider to deliver the consignment.
Note: In case you are sending a consignment in multiple vehicles, you need to inform Eshopbox prior to the delivery.
Step 2 → Eshopbox verifies your document at the fulfilment centre
At the time of delivery, you must provide Eshopbox with a document that includes the following details about your consignment.

The unloading of the vehicle needs to be done by the transporter itself at the Eshopbox dock.
After unloading, Eshopbox will label all the boxes as per the number of cartons/boxes mentioned in the document. Any discrepancy may lead to a further delay to inward your consignment.
