Courier Integration

Integrate with the couriers that give you the best value and service. Intelligently manage the selection of couriers and services by order profile.

Our OrderFlow warehouse management system (WMS) integrates seamlessly with all the main UK and US courier services, allowing labels to be produced quickly and cost effectively at the point they are needed.

Realtime Despatch is not a part of any of the courier affiliate programs and does not receive commission or other type of payment from any of the courier services we integrate with.

Courier services we support

Our courier integration framework makes it possible to add new courier services quickly and cost effectively.

Courier integration is a fundamental part of every despatch operation. Matching each order with the right courier service and being able to produce the required label quickly at the right point in the despatch process is a key element of every fulfilment workflow.

Realtime Despatch will work with you to implement the courier services you need in the way that is most effective for your business.

Intelligent courier selection

The OrderFlow service will allow you to lower your courier costs by automatically choosing the most appropriate courier service for each order. A rules-based approach can use the destination, weight, priority and any other aspect of the order to determine the appropriate courier service for each despatch.

OrderFlow courier integration

OrderFlow WMS integrates with all the main UK and US couriers, supporting the production of multi-part labels, courier documentation and driver manifests. The integration with the courier services happens automatically in the background,

Using OrderFlow’s courier integration you can always ensure products are shipped correctly in a co-ordinated and streamlined manner.

Labels are pulled from the different courier services automatically, without any user intervention being required. The courier labels and other associated paperwork can then be printed at the packing station while the order is being packed. If the courier service provides a tracking reference this will be automatically captured and associated with the order.



The objective of every integration is to allow Magento to be used solely as an E-commerce sales platform, moving all the warehouse and order processing activity into the OrderFlow environment. Magento can then be used in the E-commerce role it is designed for, allowing you to use OrderFlow to get the most from your warehouse and despatch operations.
