What’s nice about AuditERP 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.

Freight pricing and rates have become increasingly complex in today’s logistics and transportation sector. Navigating freight invoices can be challenging, and it’s common for carriers to make errors or fail to complete service requirements.
