We support sending Dangerous Goods documents using integration to DG Office which is a 3rd party software. DG Office is an expert in dangerous goods documents and ensures that the documents you print fulfill the legal requirements.
DG Office subscription
To use the DG Office integration in our cloud solutions, you need a subscription to the Web Service module of DG Office.
The DG Office subscription is provided by DG Office and their dealers and must be made with them. If you already have a DG Office subscription, it must include the Web Service module subscription to work with nShift Ship.
Log in to DG Office at https://www.dgoffice.net/ .
To use DG Office with Ship, you must create your own article numbers in DG Office and refer to these in Ship. Please refer to DG Office for support on how to create article numbers.
