INVENTORY

Shipping Method

The Shipping Method feature available in the Odoo Inventory module can be used in the same pattern as we discussed in the Sales module. A company can deliver products directly to their customers or can seek help from third-party shipping connectors. To get this feature in the Odoo Inventory module, you can go to the Settings menu and activate the Delivery Methods option.

The Delivery Methods feature can be used to calculate the shipping costs of delivery. In order to get third-party assistance for delivery operations, you can activate Shipping Connectors from the Settings menu as shown in the screenshot. The available shipping connectors are UPS Connector, FedEx Connector, bpost Connector, Sendcloud Connector, DHL Express Connector, USPS Connector, and Easypost Connector. This feature is available in the Enterprise edition of Odoo.

Now, select the Shipping Methods option available under the Configuration menu to add new delivery methods. The list will show the already configured Shipping Methods with the details of the Delivery Method, Provider, Company, and Countries.
