How can it help me?

By monitoring and understanding your shipping performance, you can increase warehouse productivity, improve carrier selection, set more accurate delivery propositions, and reduce failed delivery promises. The reports provide you with insight needed to:

  • Resolve processing issues in the warehouse. Streamline warehouse productivity and minimise delays.

  • Reduce failed delivery promises. Proactively intervene with delayed parcels by reaching out to the customer, managing expectations.

  • Improve delivery proposition on your website. Identify your average delivery times to display accurate times for your customers.

  • Ensure carriers meet their SLAs. Recover costs when carriers are not performing as promised.

  • Select the right carriers for your shipping profile. Build a complete profile of when, where, and how you ship.

  • Analysis of the completeness of your tracking events by carrier.

  • Comparison of data quality by carrier.

  • Monitoring of shipments through the warehouse and identifying any blocked from despatch.

  • Overall snapshot of your exceptions, lead times, despatch volumes, and problem trade lanes.

  • Monitoring of the volumes that carriers delivered to trade lanes against their SLAs.

  • Drill through to lost or late parcels so that you can open them in your shipping platform.
