Specify Carrier and Service in Sales Order (without shipping integration)
I have several Carriers/Services set up in Reference Books and in Shipping Zones. I'm not really sure why the sales order header box called Carrier/Service doesn't allow me to select one of those Carriers/Services set up in Reference Books. I understand a dropdown/search function is only available if we have one of the off-the-shelf shipping integrations (ShipIt, Shippy etc.).
Our use-case is when the order is forwarded to a 3PL warehouse, the warehouse will know the desired carrier and service to book for the shipment. We can fill in freeform text in the field, but our integration with the warehouse will automate the carrier selection, so that's just going to lead to mistakes.
