Coming Soon: New Defaults for the Customer kind Parameter

Starting May 15, 2024, the default logic for the kind parameter will be as follows:

  • For orders with a single waypoint, the waypoint kind will defined as Customer.
  • For orders with two waypoints, the first waypoint (pickup) kind will be defined as Warehouse, and the second waypoint (drop off) will be defined as "Customer".

To define a waypoint as an alternate kind, include an integer value with the kind parameter:

  • 0 - Customer
  • 1 - Warehouse
  • 2 - Store
  • 3 - Locker
  • 4 - Fulfillment center

The Order (Task) Object now includes the planned_distance_from_prev_task parameter in webhooks and responses related to orders planned using Route Optimization or the route planner. The parameter indicates the distance to the order in question from the location of the preceding order in the route.

You can now set delivery terms as hard constraints to prevent Bringg from requesting quotes from carriers that do not meet the requirements of an order.

  • When a delivery term is set as a hard constraint, carriers that do not meet an order's requirements do not appear in the Get Quotes response.
  • When a delivery term is not set as a hard constraint, it is considered a soft constraint. When a carrier with a soft constraint does not meet the requirements of an order, the carrier is included in the Get Quotes response with "delivery_terms_supported": false.


    Best Practice

    As hard constraints do not provide results that include "delivery_terms_supported": false, we recommend updating the way your external systems listen to responses from Bringg so that they do not rely on the existence of this field.

You can now view which system or user initiated a change in scheduling for an order. The Destination Rescheduled webhook now includes the following parameters:

  • time_window_change_origin: The system, process, or user action that initiated a change in the time window for a waypoint.
  • workflow_id: When a change was triggered by an automation, the ID of that automation.
