Automate your container uploads via email

July 1, 2019 by Kathleen Kong |

Container tracking

An easy way to automate the process of uploading your containers to your dashboard is to email your containers to containers@cruxsystems.com.  

If you already receive an email from your supply chain partner with your containers, all you need to do forward it to containers@cruxsystems.com and the containers will automatically be added to your dashboard for tracking. 

Even better, if you include a CSV file, you can upload other data as searchable tags. You'll need to do a one-time setup for your CSV file to enable this. Here's how:

On the Integration page (under My account), click the configure button in the email integrations section. You will be walked through a series of steps to identify the columns in your file for container numbers and shipping lines, and can select the columns that you would like to add tags.

Once you've finished configuring your CSV file, email it to containers@cruxsystems.com. Your container data will all be automatically uploaded to your dashboard. 

The configuration settings for your file are visible to all users within your organization, but can only be changed by account owners. 

To take advantage of this feature, upgrade to one of our paid plans, or contact us at sales@cruxsystems.com.
