This Week, Let’s Look at the Number 1 Reason to Use a Multi-Carrier Shipping System
There are many good reasons to use a multi-carrier system versus one that you can obtain from a carrier for ‘free.’ A multi-carrier system is designed to meet the needs of its customers and not the needs of the carriers. Carriers developed these systems to enable them to capture specific data on each package and produce carrier compliant labels. These needs are what drive the carriers to provide these ‘free’ systems to their customers which number in the hundreds of thousands; so what they give away is not designed for specific industries or for specific types of customers. They are designed to provide specific data and carrier compliant labels.
A multi-carrier system is designed with the customer in mind. That’s why they bundle the carriers into one system with one user interface with one repository for your shipping data. That’s why a multi-carrier system provides tools that help you to better manage your customers and help you to increase sales and satisfy customers. That’s why a multi-carrier system like the CPS shipping software provides tools that help you connect to a variety of systems like your order entry system, providing important shipping data. In short, multi-carrier shipping was designed for YOU, the one that depends on shipping products to YOUR customers.
Over the next few weeks, we are going to look at lots of ways that multi-carrier shipping systems can bring benefits to your shipping, accounting, customer service, sales and carrier relationship processes. Right now, visit www.HarveySoft.com if you would like to know more about CPS.
