If you’ve been thinking about adding a logistics software to your shipping operation, there are quite a few things for you to consider. So today we’re going to help you learn how to save thousands on logistics software by choosing an integrated software solution.

Save on the Price of Shipping with Logistics Software

When you’re in the process of collecting quotes for shipping, there are a lot of variables that you have to take into account. There’s price per weight, price per dimensions, speed of delivery, method of delivery, and delivery route, just to name a few. And unless you ask for price based on a specific set of parameters for each major carrier, you could end up in a losing situation simply due to the many variables.

But with an integrated logistics software, you can get an accurate price quote with the same parameters from several carriers in one single software interface. Not only that, but you can change the parameters in a few clicks and get an updated quote immediately that’s specific to each customer.

Save on Employee Hours with Software Integration

As a warehouse or shipping manager, much of your time is spent getting rates and full quotes from major shipping carriers. This process takes a ton of time, and it’s really only the beginning. After you finally get the business settled of whom you’ll use to ship your LTL, you’ll have to then start the process of tracking the shipment using the same company. Oftentimes, this process is even more stressful because the person on the phone has to contact someone else to even get you the information. All of this is time consuming, time wasting, and stressful.

With an integrated logistics software, you can have all of the information you need in one place so you can call it up at any time. You can get several price quotes from major carriers in a few clicks, choose one and set up the shipment through the same interface, and then you can get detailed routing and tracking information within the same system. The middle man is completely cut out, which means you can spend less hours on the phone and more hours doing the million other things that need to get done in the warehouse.

Expand Your Business with Logistics Software

If you’re saving money on the price of shipping, and saving employee hours with software integration, you may be in a position where you can strengthen or expand your business. You could open up a new market, target a new customer, or even work with a bigger company than you would otherwise.

With an integrated logistics software, you can have everything you need to scale your business at the touch of a button. You could quickly see how much it would cost to expand into a new territory. You could generate a report to see how much you’ve saved using more affordable shipping methods. You could even use the system to show your customers that you’re willing to go the extra mile in getting several quotes for them. Anyway you look at it, it’s a win-win scenario.

Save Thousands on Logistics Software with ONE Integrated Solution

Why spend money on several different logistics software? Choosing an integrated system will save you time, money, and stress. And it may be the solution you need to take your business to the next level.
