How to track inbound shipments with suppliers' carrier tracking numbers?

Most of our suppliers have integrated their delivery process by outsourcing the delivery to carriers companies.

As a result, when our orders are processed by the suppliers, we are notified by email:

  • the supplier confirms that the order is processed and sends the corresponding invoice and custom information as 2 pdf attachments

  • then their carrier confirms that they are processing the delivery and sends a link to their own system to allow us follow the status of such delivery

  • How is it possible to automatically link these messages and attachments to our own initial/source information lying with our Purchase order?

Have you received an answer for this question or have you figured out the solution yourself? I have a distribution company and my manufacturers ship directly to my customers and I am looking for a way to streamline that tracking info and get it into Odoo and to my customers in a better way.

Not one answer or comment or question so far.

Seems that You are the first one to understand the issue :)

I remember some post on this forum on drop-shipping solutions with Odoo; this may hemp you.

Have you figured out anything on your own? I have figured out how to choose a drop shipping method and have PO's created automatically from choosing that option in my sales orders. If you want to discuss, I would love to chat. Email me at mike@innovateilluminate.com. Maybe we can figure it out together.
