Directly send consignments to IFS SmartFreight®

    Consignments are automatically sent through to IFS SmartFreight® when the Magento shipment is created, seamlessly integrating with existing Magento order processing. Additional information required for SmartFreight® can be configured on the same page as standard Magento options.

    Automatic box size calculations

    Shipment box sizes are automatically calculated based on existing product dimensions and use an optimised box packing algorithm to try and minimise the box volume for you, saving you from manually working out these values yourself.

    Flexible product dimension selection

    Product dimensions can be set by Magento product attributes, specifically from IFS box dimensions, using standard defaults or manually on every order. Box sizes can always be adjusted before sending to SmartFreight® so you have total flexibility in how your box dimensions are defined.

    Multiple Boxes per Product

    If you have products which are shipped as multiple individual boxes, you can add these details to Magento and have them be added together when adding boxes on the shipment creation screen.
