We create custom orders and would like to email a follow up document to our customer. If we could have the option to email a packing slip at the same point as print a packing slip, it would save us from saving to PDF, then composing an email in our email system and attaching that PDF to the customer.
As others are saying, the email would also save us in creating packing slips and labels for dropshippers too.

Thanks for bringing this up! If you know any other users that are interested please send them here!
As developing a seamless integration typically requires cooperation from both parties, we recommend reaching out to SpeeDee Delivery and expressing your interest in an integration to help expedite this process.
It would be valuable to have Spee-Dee rates show up, so we can have them as an option to ship in the Midwest. Interested in the integration with Spee-Dee for small parcels, not LTL services.

Thanks for bringing this up! We’ll keep this in mind but would like to see more interest from other users before we pursue a partnership.

Many brokers and carriers use similar TMS systems, so this seems doable.
The perfect situation is we could create Bills of Lading and request pickups from the Order Screen by putting in skid dimensions, freight class and NMFC numbers. We'd pay some good money for that service as an added carrier/fulfiller to ShipStation. Some vendors you might partner with include DLS - broker, Emerge - TMS software, MercuryGate - TMS software, or Echo Global - broker to help develop the solution.
At the very least, the ability to input the Pro number, so the customer can track their order when we mark as shipped. Some carriers will even give our company Pro numbers prior to the Bill of Lading for the skids, so we do know what Pro number goes with which carrier.
This process would be our processor marks as shipped, the pop up window comes up with R+L Freight Carriers as option, we enter the Pro number and click Notify customer, then the customer gets an email with the carrier website and the Pro number.
Right now, my company waits until we post orders to QuickBooks Online and sends the tracking number and website link along with the sales receipt from QBO. ShipStation could provide some great efficiencies by adding LTL tracking communication.
