FAQ’S

What happens when my shopping cart contains products that ship LTL and products that would normally ship FedEx or UPS?

If the shopping cart contains one or more products tagged to ship LTL freight, all of the products in the shopping cart are assumed to ship LTL freight. To ensure the most accurate quote possible, make sure that every product has a weight and dimensions recorded.

What happens if I forget to identify a freight classification for a product?

In the absence of a freight class, the plugin will determine the freight classification using the density calculation method. To do so the products weight and dimensions must be recorded.

Why was the invoice I received from Worldwide Express more than what was quoted by the plugin?

One of the shipment parameters (weight, dimensions, freight class) is different, or additional services (such as residential delivery, lift gate, delivery by appointment and others) were required. Compare the details of the invoice to the shipping settings on the products included in the shipment. Consider making changes as needed. Remember that the weight of the packaging materials,such as a pallet, is included by the carrier in the billable weight for the shipment.

How do I find out what freight classification to use for my products?

Contact your local Worldwide Express office for assistance. You might also consider getting a subscription to ClassIT offered by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA). Visit them online at classit.nmfta.org.

At the conclusion of the registration process an email will be sent to you that will include the license key. You can also login to eniture.com using the username and password you created during the registration process and retrieve the license key from the My Licenses tab.

How do I install the plugin on another website?

There you will be able to change the domain name that is associated with the license key.

Do I have to purchase a second license for my staging or development site?

No. Each license allows you to identify one domain for your production environment and one domain for your staging or development environment. The rate estimates returned in the staging environment will have the word “Sandbox” appended to them.

Why isn’t the plugin working on my other website?

If you can successfully test your credentials from the Connection page (WooCommerce > Settings > Speedfreight > Connections) then you have one or more of the following licensing issue:
1) You are using the license key on more than one domain. The licenses are for single sites. You will need to purchase an additional license.
2) Your trial period has expired.
3) Your current license has expired and we have been unable to process your form of payment to renew it. Login to eniture.com and go to the My Licenses tab to resolve any of these issues.

The quoted amount will be the same as a quote to the ship to address if it were a commercial address and would not require lift gate delivery (the “standard LTL rate“). This will be a more economical option for customers who would otherwise be subject to the residential address and/or lift gate delivery fee(s).

If you want the amount quoted for the Hold At Terminal option to be different than the standard LTL rate, use the field below the checkbox to modify the rate. The adjustment will be interpreted as dollars and cents unless it is follow by a % sign.

Weight of Handling UnitEnter in pounds the weight of your pallet, skid, crate or other type of handling unit you use. The amount entered will be added to shipment weight prior to requesting a quote.
Handling Fee / Mark UpIncreases the amount of each returned quote by a specified amount prior to displaying it/them in the shopping cart. The number entered will be interpreted as dollars and cents unless it is followed by a % sign. For example, entering 5.00 will cause $5.00 to be added to the quotes. Entering 5.00% will cause each quote to be multiplied by 1.05 (= 1 + 5%).

Text for Own ArrangementYou can customize the text that is displayed in the shopping cart for the Own Arrangement option. For example, you may want it to appear as “Pickup Order” or “Hold for pickup”.
Show WooCommerce shipping options(Yes|No) By default the plugin suppresses shipping rates from all other plugins when the shopping cart contains an item you have indicated will ship LTL Freight. Enabling this setting will allow the native WooCommerce shipping options to also display.
Return LTL quotes when an order’s parcel shipment weight exceeds 150 lbsWhen checked, the LTL Freight Quote plugin will return quotes when an order’s total weight exceeds 150 lbs (the maximum permitted by FedEx and UPS), even if none of the products have settings to indicate that it will ship LTL. To increase the accuracy of the returned quote(s), all products should have accurate weights and dimensions.

8. Define Warehouse and Drop Ship Locations

Return to top.

If you don’t have visibility to the plugin’s navigation menu, select Settings from the WooCommerce menu.

woocommerce_settings

Click on the Speedfreight tab to gain access to the plugin configuration settings. Using the links at the top of the page, select Warehouses.

Click the Add button in the appropriate sections to add warehouse and drop ship locations. On the Basic Plan you can define one warehouse and multiple drop ship locations. To define multiple warehouse locations you must be on the Standard Plan or higher.

Warehouses should have a complete inventory of all products not otherwise identified as drop shipped items. If you have more than one warehouse defined, the warehouse closest to the shopper will be used to retrieve shipping rate estimates. You should define at least one warehouse, even if all of your products are drop shipped. This insures that quotes will be returned in the event the drop ship location was overlooked when the product entry was created.

Drop ship locations usually represent vendors that supply items that you don’t inventory. These items are shipped directly to your customer on your behalf. When an order includes drop shipped items the shopping cart will display a single figure for the shipping rate estimate that is equal to the sum of the cheapest option for each shipment required to fulfill the order.

The last option in the list of freight classifications is Density Based. In most cases this is an industry accepted alternative for identifying the freight class of an item or shipment. Validate the returned quotes if using this setting. There are exceptions in the NMFC Freight Classification Directory that can render the density calculator results invalid for particular commodities. To be used successfully the product must have its weight and dimensions populated in the Shipping sub-panel.

Hazardous materialThe Standard Plan is required to use this feature. If you aren’t on the Standard Plan or higher, the words Standard plan required will appear adjacent to the settings header, and the fields associated with the feature will be inaccessible.

If your product is a Variable Product, set the shipping parameters for each product variation on the Variations page.

What Your Customer Sees

Return to top.

When any product in the shopping cart is designated to ship LTL freight, all products in the shopping cart are assumed to ship LTL freight. Therefore, it’s recommended that all products be assigned a freight class; even those that don’t normally ship LTL freight. If a freight class isn’t available, the plugin will attempt to calculate one using the density based calculation. This requires that both the product’s weight and dimensions are recorded, which is a recommended practice regardless of what shipping method is used. If the weight and dimensions aren’t recorded, the plugin follows a complex set rules to make an effort to return a estimated rate so the shopper isn’t discouraged from completing the transaction. The absence of freight class, weight or dimensions will impact the accuracy of the quote.

The shopping cart won’t display a LTL freight quote the first time the shopper views the shopping cart because it isn’t aware of the ship to address. The user will be prompted to click on the Calculate Shipping Cost link to provide this information.

Appearance of shopping cart when viewed by a shopper who is not logged in to the website.Appearance of the shopping cart after the user clicks on the
Calculate Shipping link.

After the user provides the ship to information, the shopping cart will display the LTL freight quote(s) based on the settings entered in for the plugin. The settings for the illustrations below were to return the three cheapest options. Refer to the installation guide for a list of other available options and how to enable them.

If the plugin is unable to display LTL freight quotes, the shopper will be directed to call in for a quote. Typical reasons why quotes may not be displayed include: 1) Insufficient data on the products in the shopping cart, such as freight class, weight or dimensions; 2) Invalid credentials due to a password change, an expired license, or a suspended Worldwide Express account; 3) An invalid or incomplete ship to address was provided; or 4) The Worldwide Express web service is not operational.
