Best Shipping Software
Shipping software helps businesses coordinate and streamline their outgoing shipments to customers with features such as comparative carrier pricing on shipments, bulk editing and printing of shipment information, and custom tracking and confirmation notifications. Following an outgoing shipment, shipping software lets users use photographic evidence and templates in order to manage order returns and documentation. These features have the potential benefit of improving and automating processes for future orders.
Shipping software shouldn't be confused with transportation management software, which is dedicated to optimizing transportation loads and routes, or supply chain suites, the scope of which encompasses the entire supply chain process. Due to the nature of shipping software, it frequently integrates with e-commerce platforms and fleet management software.
