Digital prenotification of a shipment
On your behalf, TransSmart can give notice of shipments of your goods to more than 180 transporters, such as UPS, DHL, TNT, etc. Using data from Profit, TransSmart can automatically determine the correct/optimal transporter based on the contracts in which data such as prices and the conditions for packages (dimensions, weight) have been recorded.
You register a shipment digitally using your packing slip in Profit. Profit then sends the data from the packing slip to TransSmart who then supplements it with the correct transporter (depending on the agreement with TransSmart).
The status of the packing slip tells you whether the registration has been successful or not. You can then print off the labels of the transporter and stick them on the shipment.
After this, the transporter picks up the packages.
You can follow the shipment using Track & trace.
Finally you can compare the invoice you receive with the specification of the shipment from TransSmart.
For Profit customers, TransSmart can digitally register shipments of goods with more than 180 transporters such as UPS, DHL and TNT. This can save you a lot of time and might also be cheaper. You have to configure this functionality first.
