Company Y is based in Denmark and they only ship domestic packages. They use carrier GLS to deliver their parcels, except for some post code areas in Copenhagen where they use DAO.
Follow these steps to set up this example in the Shipping Rules UI:
- Go to Shipping Rules > File > Drafts and click the New button. Name your file and click Create.
- Click the wrench icon next to the file you just created and choose Edit.
- Under Additional Options check Use select rules and click Next.
- Click New, select a product and click Create. In this example, we are using DAO > DAO Distribution (new) > DAO Direkte.
- Click the arrow next to the name and add a condition. Choose Receiver > Postcode > Use ranges. Enter DK in the country code field. Choose Include and set the Postcode type to Numeric. In this example, we set the Min value to 1000 and the Max value to 2500 which covers the Copenhagen postcodes.
- Click the New button again to add another Select Rule. This one will be used for all other packages to Denmark.
- Select a product and click Create. In this example, GLS DK > GLS National > Normal erhvervspakke is used and the service Må stilles uden kvittering is added.
- Click the arrow next to the name and add a condition. Choose Receiver > Country > DK. This will be used for all the packages to DK that did not match the post code range from the first Select Rule. If you wish, you can define another postcode range for this, but it is not needed since the first rule will always run first. This way, the second product also works as fall back for the first product in case some data is missing for the first product to work.
- Click the Save button at the top.
- Go to the File tab and locate your file under Drafts. Click the wrench icon and choose Publish. The file is now active and will be used next time you create a shipment.
