Features

Automated Efficiency
Sage 300 ERP Shipping provides a comprehensive automation platform to introduce best practices that improve the efficiency and accuracy of your entire shipping process. Automated functionality allows you to always ship the best and most economical way based on the arrival date, days in transit, and service level required for the shipment. Reduce freight costs through carrier-compliant interfaces providing real-time rate shopping, insurance management, and multiple shipping options, such as delivery, shipment, and freight consolidations. You can control the level of automation in your warehouse by taking advantage of integrated scales and scanners to save the warehouse time as well as reduce errors. Each order is manifested with the carrier as the label is produced, so the driver already knows how many packages to pick up and an end- of- day manifest is not required. And best yet, your customers are provided with automatic email notification of the date of shipment, packing slip, and a link to the ca rrier’s tracking number.

Maximum Flexibility
Multi-Carrier and Multi-Mode Shipping flexibility ensures that you are maximizing freight cost savings and shipping efficiency. Shipping by SmartLinc is carrier compliant with FedEx, UPS ® , USPS, DHL, CanPar, Candian Post, and Purolator, and it supports generic and regional carriers to optimize transportation through Small Parcel, LTL, TL, and Air modes. Support an unlimited number of company vehicles to track your personal delivery methods. Through one point of contact, you can select from a broad range of carriers and modes, based on your customers’ delivery requirements, time sensitivity, and the characteristics of the products’ being shipped. Carrier-specific shipping labels, tags, and reports can be easily generated in various formats, including high-quality thermal labels. The packing application lets you scan and enter items as they are packed, automating the packing process so your warehouse maintains 100% shipping accuracy. Ensure your shipments are delivered on time, every time.

Seamless Connectivity

Designed to work with your existing business processes and provide seamless integration to Sage 300 ERP—our shipping solution allows real-time updates of charges and tracking numbers to your system.
