Set your Conditions and Actions

A 'Condition' tells the Rule Manager what to look for when shipments are imported - for example, destination country, destination postcode, or shipping platform.

An 'Action' is the change applied to your imported shipments - for example, service, parcel weight, or transit cover.

The Interparcel Rule Manager is available for free to all our customers.
