Delivery Methods & its Criteria

Odoo offers several shipping methods to help businesses manage their shipping needs efficiently. These methods can be configured and customized according to the specific requirements of the business.

You can maintain records and manage the transportation methods used by your company to ship products to customers. By delivering products on time, without damage, and at a reasonable cost, you can create a positive impression on your customers. You have the option to deliver products directly to customers or engage third-party shipping companies.
