@rmehta just a strategical question, why wouldn’t this just be included in ERPNext by default?
We should have the configuration for this under “Integrations” and then we should work on getting not only FedEx but also DHL Express and UPS hooked up so before you create a label you select from who ever gives you the best rates on different services.
I couldn’t agree more with @dominik. FedEx integration would I’m sure be very popular for one and also not sure if its just me but some of these great apps are sometimes much harder to find then you would think esp. for novice ERPNext (potential ) customer/developers. I was not aware there was a FedEx app until today.
Also if this is integrated it can be kept up to date too in case the FedEx api were to change
@gupteshwar I am looking forward to finally having shipping courier (FedEx, UPS) implementations in ERPNext and I am glad you and Indictrans are taking a lead in getting this out to the community. You could probably benefit from looking at the solution @Eric_Delisle has done if you are given access. I am sure if both are combined and all things are considered this will be a great solution.
It’s great to give back to the community and it ensures that your implementation survives on the long run.
In general the Delivery and the Shipment are a “Fulfilment” of the order. I would like to suggest adding a section in Stock for that. Both DocTypes are quite different and I believe they should be kept separate.
We should be able to select in the “Fulfilment Type” in the customer which could be:
Pickup (the customer comes to our location to pick it up)
Delivery (we deliver with our own delivery service to the customer)
Shipment (we use a courier like FedEx to ship to the customer)
This should then also be changeable in the Sales Order and respectively in the Delivery Note (if we deviate from the default in that case).
