Connect with shipping carriers in real-time with our SAP web portal

Timely and effective communication between shipping providers and carriers is key when it comes to optimizing your supply chain performance. However, when your carrier network is busy managing loads, you may find yourself waiting for important shipment updates, reducing your overall productivity. Luckily, you can streamline carrier communication with a reliable carrier management portal designed for facilitating clear and efficient exchanges between you and your carriers.

 

At ShipERP, we’ve developed a superior SAP carrier portal that helps businesses manage their shipping carriers seamlessly. Our team has been dedicated to transforming companies’ digital supply chains with top-of-the-line SAP solutions for over a decade.

What Is CarrierPORTAL, the Multi-Carrier Communication Software?

It’s time to expedite your carrier communications!

 

CarrierPortal is a web portal solution that allows shipping carriers, couriers or private fleets to see shipments assigned to them using a web browser or mobile device. The shipping provider can assign drivers to the delivery, provide tracking statuses (i.e. Pickup, In transit, Delivered, etc.) and have customers sign for deliveries right in the carrier portal.

 

Imagine, no more faxing or emailing scanned delivery documents. Kick back and relax as you gain real-time visibility, all at your fingertips with a carrier portal solution! View all event statuses in Standard SAP Delivery transaction (VL02N/ VL03N), including the proof of delivery signature!

Benefits of Using Carrier Management Portal Software

 

More and more companies have begun implementing carrier portals into their SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) software due to their many advanced capabilities. Some of the many advantages you can expect to experience when using technologies like CarrierPORTAL include:

  • Real-time visibility: SAP carrier portals enable users to track carrier performance, delivery statuses, payments, customer signatures, and more in real-time, letting you keep tabs on your deliveries without the hassle of manually exchanging information.
  • User-friendly operation: Technologies like CarrierPORTAL were designed with the user in mind, making it as easy and painless as possible to manage carriers and shipping data.
  • Maximized supply chain efficiency: With a reliable carrier management portal, you can eliminate timely manual processes and drastically improve your supply chain performance. These programs enable users to track and trace shipments, communicate with carriers, and monitor multiple channels faster and more efficiently than ever.
  • Improved customer service: When you can accurately track shipments and report estimated delivery times, your team can better mitigate risks and provide the best possible service to your customers.
 

How Does CarrierPORTAL Work Within the SAP Shipping Process?

Gain real-time visibility with shipping carriers by using CarrierPORTAL, an SAP-integrated web portal. First, assign shipping carriers, couriers, or private fleets their shipments. Then, the carriers will be able to view their freight loads in the carrier portal on any device – laptop, desktop, mobile phone – you name it!

 

Since CarrierPORTAL is an SAP-integrated solution that is written in ABAP (the native programming language for SAP), the carrier portal solution works flawlessly with your SAP ERP. CarrierPORTAL uses web services within SAP to easily communicate and implement transactions with shipping carriers.

 

With CarrierPORTAL, you can guarantee a structurally sound solution to help you coordinate shipments with carriers. ShipERP closely follows the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) methodology, which enables the carrier portal software to integrate seamlessly with carriers and provide real-time processing of shipments and tracking.

Frequently Asked Questions

This carrier portal solution bridges the gap with shipping providers where technology is not available by the provider for integration.

 

Through its mobile-friendly interface, CarrierPortal provides visibility to shipments from pickup through delivery allowing the shipper seamless carrier integration and tracking. The solution is also ideal for companies that manage their own fleets and need visibility in the supply chain shipment execution process.

We are confident that you can achieve a reduction in warehouse/operations labor based on the implementation of ShipERP and the best practices associated with that implementation. The fully-featured shipping software (ShipERP) is compatible with the following hardware/software environments:

 

Hardware:
NetWeaver server
Barcode scanners at each pack/ship terminal (Optional)
Barcode printers (Zebra preferred)
Scales (Optional)

What’s nice about ShipERP is that it is written completely in ABAP, the native programming language for SAP. Core to its technology is the use of web services within SAP to directly communicate and transact business with the major carriers that support this technology. By following Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) methodology it enables the ShipERP application to integrate seamlessly with carriers and provide real-time processing of shipments and tracking.

 

If a carrier does not support a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) the ShipERP product can also utilize XML via HTTP POST or EDI processing to communicate with the carriers. Other options for integration include tracking number generation using carrier algorithms or pre-generated tracking numbers loaded into ShipERP. Whatever the method of integration is, ShipERP can support it.

We excel in providing enhanced supply chain execution with ShipERP, the cross industry shipping solution. Industries that we serve, but are not limited to include:

 

Food and Beverage
Transportation and Logistics
Manufacturing
Aerospace
Life Science
Automotive
Retail

How long it takes to implement CarrierPORTAL into your SAP ERP depends on your company’s requirements. The process for administering the software through a single location typically takes eight weeks to complete, including project kick-off and live launch. Eight weeks is a fast implementation time by SAP standards, as this procedure often takes six months or more.
