Small Parcel Suite: Efficient Paperless Best Practices for Logistics


Why enhance global small parcel shipping?

With peak season parcel volumes up 18% year-on-year, third party parcel logistics and their e-commerce customers are experiencing rapid growth. In addition, the rise of online purchasing and consumer demand for faster delivery is putting enormous pressure on their organisations to meet customer service level agreements (SLAs) with little room for error. To help manage this growth through digital edi/api technology and best practice workflows to help cross-border logistics service providers outpace the industry's growth, the need to unify and automate shipping processes and move from paper and Excel to managed operations is essential to meet customer expectations and grow their business.

Small Parcel Shipping Suite software features

The enhanced functionality of the Small Parcel Shipping Suite has significantly reduced physical labour, with customers reporting a 75% reduction in shipping workflows compared to the previous one.

As part of a paperless best practice workflow, the Small Parcel Shipping Suite acts as an end-to-end solution for e-commerce and high-volume fulfilment. Simplifying cross-border logistics efficiency, valuable time is saved by eliminating the need for operating station personnel to print picking orders. After picking orders, parcels are scanned, packed and verified, all within the same UI, reducing the training required for warehouse staff. These automated workflows are completed in an integrated paperless workflow, all within the system.

Some eTower customers are already benefiting from these improvements.
