ARTA's emails form an optional suite of pre-built mailings that simply and effectively keep your customers and internal team members aware of key milestones in the shipment's fulfillment lifecycle.


You can configure email rules and subscribers for ARTA branded shipment lifecycle emails.

Email Subscriptions enable you to subscribe members of your team or a distribution list to ARTA email notifications by providing an email address per email type.

Email Rules enable you to configure rules to send ARTA email notifications to contacts on a particular shipment such as the Origin or Delivery contacts.

Email rules and subscriptions exist in either Live or Test modes. You can, for example, preview and validate configurations in test mode prior to updating your live mode settings.

Your email settings may be managed via the ARTA API or directly within your API Client Dashboard when building/testing/operating your integration.
