Our team has recently completed the development of a new feature that allows two logistics operations both using CartonCloud to create a data connection between their accounts.
This new feature is called “CartonCloud Link”.
If this is something that you think might benefit your operation please contact our support team.
What does CartonCloud Link do?
CartonCloud Link creates a link between two separate CartonCloud accounts. This allows data to be passed in both directions as required, sending information such as consignments, PODs, orders, status updates and more.
Example Use Case #1
“Blue Warehouse” and “Green Transport” both use CartonCloud. Blue Warehouse also uses Green Transport for deliveries to some areas.
After setting up CartonCloud Link, Blue Warehouse can now automatically send consignments across to Green Transport’s CartonCloud account from their warehouse sales orders.
Once Green Transport delivers these consignments, the POD is automatically attached to Blue Warehouse’s consignment records. The delivery status is updated automatically and the consignment is now ready for invoicing.
Example Use Case #2
“Red Transport” and “Green Transport” both use CartonCloud. Red Transport also uses Green Transport as an onforwarder for deliveries to some areas.
After setting up CartonCloud Link, Red Transport can now automatically send consignments across to Green Transport’s CartonCloud account by allocating their own Consignments to a delivery run named “Green Transport”.
Once Green Transport delivers these consignments, the POD is automatically attached to Red Transport’s consignment records. The delivery status is updated automatically and the consignment is now ready for invoicing.
CartonCloud Link is configurable based on your requirements. During the setup process our support team will ask what CartonCloud client you would like to send data to or receive jobs from.
Whether you want to send a consignment or warehouse order, we've made it easy with this feature. Once linked all you have to do is select the receiver account in your workflow and CartonCloud will take care of the rest.
The benefits of CartonCloud Link
- Reduce data entry to remove the opportunity for errors
- Reduce wasted staff hours manually entering work that once automated could be completed in seconds
- Simplify invoicing by always having a POD on hand
- Automated status updates in real-time ensuring nothing gets missed
- Better service and visibility for your customers!

The network effect
Having your wider network utilising CartonCloud with integrations between each other is a huge advantage for your operation. Gone are the days of picking up the phone to check on where deliveries are up to, waiting for paper proof of deliveries to be returned and manually processing them come invoicing time.
Make your life easier and streamline your workflow across your wider network through CartonCloud Link.
