Shadow Booking is a feature that allows users to access shipment data in nShift Track without booking a shipment through nShift Ship. By using this feature, all nShift Track functions can be utilized, including generating reports of all shipments and using nShift Track as a status-only product.
Use case examples:
If a shipment is flagged as a shadow shipment, nShift Ship will submit it straight to the sent section with the status of transmitted. This enables the system to bypass all the logic that occurs during the submit and transmit processes and avoids triggering API or routing calls. Customers can create shipments with the sole purpose of receiving return data and accessing the nShift Track features.
In conclusion, Shadow Booking is a beneficial feature that allows users to access shipment data in nShift Track without booking a shipment through nShift Ship. This feature provides functionality such as notifications and enriching shipments with carrier events depending on the carrier used.
