The following is our most detailed standard POD and shipment disposition file format. It is typically sent via email, and can be sent either hourly (when data is available) or daily. Once you are ready to begin receiving data in this format, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying that you want to receive the gen-full format, give us the email address to which you want it sent, and let us know the schedule (hourly or daily) on which you want us to generate the data.
The file uses standard CSV (comma-separated values) format.

Because of the number of variations possible in this file (optional fields and optional data blocks of events and comments) we do not have samples files available online. If you feel that this format is the one you will need, then once you submit the request and it is approved, we will generate a sample file for you with your data based on the exact options you choose.
