Nowadays most companies, in order to follow the tracking of shipments, are bound to access every single portal of the various shippers to monitor the ongoing activities from the outside. This leads to inefficiency and waste of time, as well as possible mistakes in entering information.
Thanks to SAP S/4 HANA it is now possible to benefit from the most advanced digital technology. In fact, SAP allows access to a single control and monitoring tool, whatever the shipper.
This creates an integrated, quick and smart system able to connect the company to the systems of the main national and international couriers in order to monitor all operations: this is SAP S/4 HANA, the ERP integrated with the systems of the shippers to guarantee adaptable and smart solutions to the companies.
Each supplier provides the api that is perfectly integrated with SAP S/4 HANA.
Thanks to this feature and the overall versatility of SAP, it is possible to obtain and monitor shipment information from a single access point, without having to connect to the various portals of the delivery companies.
The intelligent automatisms of SAP S/4 HANA allow a simplified management of the process: by entering the information in the system, also the shippers will obtain in real time all the data they need.
Even the process of printing labels for shipping packages is carried out according to intelligent automatisms triggered by SAP S/4 HANA.
By accessing the portal of the company in charge of the delivery, SAP sends the request to print the labels in the company where, thanks to a printer preset for the purpose, the operation takes place automatically through system input.
A fully automated process, from the monitoring of shipments to the printing of labels for packages, capable of integrating moments and actions that previously took place separately and were totally entrusted to the manual work of operators.
The advantages of integration lie in the possibility of improving communication between the warehouse and the customer service, which was previously responsible for searching information on shipping and printing labels for packages. In addition, with the integrated system promoted by SAP S/4 HANA the purely logistical activities are managed directly by the warehouse, which can manually enter package dimensions, thanks to more accurate and updated information.
