The Shippit Capital Transport (CT) integration lets you ship big and bulky products using Capital Transport's intrastate courier service which offers local point-to-point or same-state delivery.

The integration is BYO only as we do not offer Capital Transport services on our own accounts.

With an eligible Shippit subscription, you have the ability to bring your own Capital Transport rates to Shippit.

What's needed to integrate my own account?

Connect your pre-negotiated rates with Capital Transport to seamlessly quote, book, and track your orders on our platform.

If you have your own account with CT and are ready to start using this carrier with Shippit, please reach out to our Support team via configuration@shippit.com to start the onboarding process. Make sure to include the following information:

  • Merchant Name - The name of your account

  • Account Number - The account number 

Please allow 3 to 5 business days for configuration to be completed. Once you have been advised that your CT account has been successfully implemented you should see your orders available to switch to Capital Transport on the New Orders page.

Note: This carrier will not be displayed as part of your list of carriers in your store settings. We plan to introduce this in a future update.

How does quoting work?

To help you optimise shipping costs, we will automatically return the most cost-effective quote out of the available services and vehicle types from your Capital Transport account.

Depending on location, CT has certain days for pickups. It is important to understand which days your location is assigned pickup times and ensure that orders with CT are booked the day prior to pickup.

How do delivery estimates work?

The delivery ETA provided when quoting is based on pick up and delivery within a 20km radius however this is an estimate only.

Outside of this radius, delivery times can not be guaranteed so may not match the delivery ETA provided on Shippit.

Will there be any additional surcharges?

Yes. Some deliveries that require additional services like special vehicle needs or crane requirements are not supported via the Shippit integration.

If you require any of these services, after creating the order, you will need to call Capital Transport directly on 13 14 80 to advise what assistance is required.

Capital Transport will invoice you directly for the additional charges.
