Enroute Portal: Shipment Execution

Enroute Portal: Shipment Execution

Enroute Portal is a comprehensive Transportation Management System (TMS) solution that supports optimized shipment execution using one or more carriers. Deployed rapidly as a SaaS solution, Enroute Portal combines the power of applying sophisticated, but easy-to-use, business rules to determine carrier and service selection with scalable rate/date shopping, label printing, and manifesting to support even the largest, highest volume shippers (hundreds of thousands of shipments per day).

Enroute Portal interfaces directly with your WMS, OMS, and/or ERP. Integration and implementation is seamless and deployment is very fast because the Enroute Portal components are installed directly on your existing warehouse or distribution center workstations in the form of a toolbar, much like that of a Google toolbar. This toolbar adds the capability to read weight from scales, scan barcodes, print to thermal label printers, and read and write data from your WMS and OMS. A simplified, optimized user interface creates the necessary automation for processing hundreds of thousands of shipments per day.

Enroute supports worldwide shipping with global and regional carriers and has available advanced services for:

Last mile postal service delivery:
DHL GlobalMail, OnTrac DirectPost, UPS Mail Innovations, UPS Sure Post, FedEx SmartPost, DHL GlobalMail
