Create a Newgistics Manifest (Closeout)

HTTP Request

POST /v1/manifests


This operation closes out the day for Newgistics parcels by electronically notifying Newgistics how many parcels await. Newgistics creates manifest files for all valid labels generated since the previous closeout. The operation does not generate a pickup slip.

You can close out parcels for up to five facilities with one API call. To close out parcels for additional facilities, you must issue the API call again.

To use this operation, a merchant must be onboarded for Newgistics, as described on the Newgistics Overview page.

Things to Consider

  1. When issuing the API call, you must set the following:

    Field Value
    carrier NEWGISTICS
    submissionDate The date the shipments are to be tendered to the carrier.

    You must include the following Manifest Parameters:

  2. You can optionally include up to five instances of the CARRIER_FACILITY_ID_<#> parameter to close out pieces corresponding to specific facilities. Each instance specifies a Newgistics Facility ID. If this parameter is not specified, all un-manifested parcels are closed out. For more information, see Manifest Parameters.

  3. Manifest requests for Newgistics do not support filtering by tracking numbers or induction postal code. If you provide these values in the request, they will be ignored.

  4. The manifest response does not contain a pickup slip.

  5. You cannot reprint or retry a Newgistics manifest.
