Usage of DB Schenker shipping integration requires to have approved Shipping Booking webservice from DB Schenker. Approval can be applied for in DB Schenker’s management panel called eSchenker under the panel called Usage Registration:
After navigating to Usage Registration, user must select Maintain User – Customer under the left navigation panel, where he will be redirected to the webservice subscription and Access Key generation page.
Afterwards, you are to make a Booking selection, agree to terms and conditions, and press the button Save. This will send a confirmation request to DB Schenker support, which may take from few hours to few days to get approved. When it is approved, you’ll get an email with the rest of the information.
After getting a confirmation, you’ll also be provided with the Access Key required to set in the Linnworks integration configuration’s page under Linnworks Shipping Integration for DB Schenker. If it happens that you were never provided with the key or if you forgot it/didn’t make a backup of one, you are always allowed to generate a new one under the webservice subscription page. You are also allowed to see what kind of webservices are you subscribed to and of course – an option to unsubscribe if anything.
When we have our access key and approved webservice, this key will be used under the DB Schenker shipping service integration configuration page:
That’s it! Congratulations, you have obtained access to the shipping booking webservice and you have your Access Key up and running.
