Good things come in small packages
The explosion of online ordering coupled with inventory strategies that favor smaller, more frequent orders have greatly increased the importance of efficiently managing parcel shipments. Consolidating shipments, selecting carriers and getting the best rates are critical to cost control, but almost impossible without a new breed of parcel management system.
If you ship a high volume of parcels, manual preparation of manifests is destined to slow the process and lead to errors
RedPrairie’s Parcel is designed to support the complex shipment consolidation, rate shopping, manifesting and label printing requirements of today’s high-volume shippers. It provides carrier rates, zone maps, carrier-compliant labels and shipment documentation, as well as support for carrier business rules and interfaces to carrier systems for transmission of shipping data. Parcel supports UPS, FedEx, DHL and USPS carriers in addition to LTL single and mixed class shipments and consolidation.
Parcel helps companies control their shipping costs by centralized carrier rating, submission and shipment. And because it’s integrated to both RedPrairie’s Transportation Management and Warehouse Management systems, parcel order fulfillment and shipping becomes a single process, which helps you reduce costs, improve control and provide better service to your customers.
So even if today’s online shoppers are more demanding, with the help of RedPrairie’s Parcel solution, good things can come for you in these small packages.
