Business value

Small parcel shipping (SPS) allows organizations to integrate with shipping carriers to send details about a packed container and receive a rate and tracking number.

Feature details

SPS works in conjunction with either manual warehouse management packing, wave containerization, or retail store pack-and-ship to send details about a packed container to a shipping carrier and then receive a rate and tracking number. The returned rate will be added to the associated sales order as a miscellaneous charge. The returned label can optionally be printed to a ZPL printer automatically. Users specify their account information for each carrier that they use. The system sends container information to the associated service, which then returns a rate, tracking number, and label information. Additionally, a third-party account number can be specified for each customer. (The specific carrier rating engines are not included and must be acquired separately.)
