An underperforming shipping process keeps customers away from your products. But all this can be avoided by closely monitoring your shipping process. You can reduce errors by eliminating redundant tasks and automation. This will help in reducing bottlenecks and ensure timely supply of products to end consumer.
By integrating multi carrier shipping software to your shipping process, you optimize business efficiencies.
Software enables business to share abundant information with suppliers and carriers. Better transfer of information eliminates the chance of errors. Confirmation of addresses can limit wastage of time on incorrect orders. Business can add details to delivery requirement like, free delivery or overnight delivery. This improves communication across functions and improves customer satisfaction.
With a help of shipping software, you can improve packaging details by indicating the dimensions of each item.
One way to do it is by integrating a dimension device to the software, which will indicate the scale of each item to the shipper.
Another economical approach will be to add barcodes, which indicates dimensions. A business might use different packaging boxes for different products, automating the process and saving time and money.
Negotiating rates can be a tedious task, but with the help of shipping software, you can avail the optimal freight solutions for your company. Freight comparison can be done amongst carrier’s service level (ground or 3-day), transition time, and discount rates. You can use the competitive rates provided by different carriers to formulate a cost strategy that works best for you.
Customers who opt for the carrier of their choice usually provide an account number that needs to be billed. Your software will make the process easy by flagging the delivery. On the time of process, you will be notified about the carrier and payment method.
Your business might be negotiating with multiple carriers for multiple deals. This makes accounting difficult. By automating the process, you can limit chances of error, re-billing, and adjustments.
Your software can establish rules for freight treatment, whether it needs to be passed to the customer, sustained by business, or calculated at a discount rate.
Apart from these benefits, your business can also avail software efficiencies for packing and labeling, generation of legal paper work, and LTL orders.
