INVENTORY MANAGEMENT - Odoo 17 Community Book

Shipping Method

The Odoo Inventory module's Shipping Method feature can be utilized in a manner similar to what we covered in the Sales module. A business can choose to use third-party shipping connectors for assistance or distribute goods straight to consumers. You can activate the Delivery Methods option in the Settings menu to access this capability in the Odoo 17 Inventory module.

The cost of delivery shipping can be computed using the Delivery Methods feature. As seen in the screenshot, you can activate Shipping Connectors from the Settings menu to obtain outside help for delivery operations. There are several shipping connectors available, including FedEx, UPS, bpost, Sendcloud, DHL Express, USPS, and Easypost connectors. The Enterprise edition of Odoo 17 has this feature.
