What is the added value of AXtension® Shipping Connect?

To provide customers with the highest quality of service will undoubtedly have the highest priority in any company. Part of that service in many cases is done in a collaborative effort with one or multiple service logistics providers, also referred to as carriers, for the delivery of your products to your customers.

Typically carriers have their own software or portals for companies to create and manage shipment bookings forming an important dependency within the delivered customer service. Unless your developing and constantly maintaining costly individual carrier integrations, this means that you’re managing decentralized data whilst your customer data, the sales orders related to your customers and the products to be delivered are all stored and managed within your Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management environment.

With AXtension® Shipping Connect it’s all brought together into one single and uniform process, fully integrated within Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management. Benefit from everything that Dynamics 365 already has to offer and enrich it by integrating all inbound and outbound logistics service providers activities with AXtension® Shipping Connect, without ever having to leave your Dynamics environment. Create shipments bookings directly at your carriers, select the most favorable delivery terms, immediately receive and/or print certified shipping labels, receive and share track & trace information with your customers to keep track of customer’s shipments, stay in control of shipping costs and carrier performance with the embedded Power BI analytical insights.

Do not worry about investing in and maintaining costly carrier integrations, shift your focus towards delivering the best and most cost-effective services to your customers.

How can I manage my shipments, especially if I’m working with multiple shipping carriers?

With AXtension® Shipping Connect fully and seamlessly integrated into Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, you can directly book your shipments from your sales- or purchase orders with all your shipping carriers without leaving Dynamics 365’s interface.

It allows you to book, manage and keep track of all your shipments in real-time through one single shipment bookings dashboard, giving you all the information you need to be in full control of all shipments being handled by your shipping carriers.

No need for external carrier specific procedures, software or portals, it’s right there at your fingertips, with AXtension® Shipping Connect.

We leverage Dynamics 365’s Warehouse Management module. Does AXtension® Shipping Connect integrate with that?

Most certainly it does! Whether it’s WMS shipments, transfer orders or WHS shipments with or without pack stations involved, AXtension® Shipping Connect is fully integrated with the Warehouse Management module.

 

How can I print my shipping labels?

With AXtension® Shipping Connect you will receive all shipping labels automatically within seconds after placing your shipment bookings with your shipping carriers. The shipping labels are always certified by your carriers and are either printed directly to one of your specified printers and/or stored as PDF as attachment to your shipment bookings.

By utilizing our advanced printer configuration your shipping labels will automatically and dynamically be printed at the correct printers, based on preference or location you are currently working from.

 

How can I and my customers keep track of shipments with AXtension® Shipping Connect?

You are in full control of all your shipments with one single shipment bookings dashboard. All shipments are updated automatically by the carriers themselves so you’re always looking at the actual status of a shipment. You can inform your customers automatically by sending them e-mail notifications including shipment status and track & trace information.
