Integrate Freight Shipping Into Any Software or Cloud with the Pacejet API

Posted by Ron Lee on 3/14/16 10:15 AM

It's surprising that freight shipping integration gets such short shrift from most ERP, WMS, and ecommerce systems. Freight shipments typically cost 10x more than parcel so even a modest volume of 10-20 LTL shipments per week can cost $500,000 or more in a year, making integration-driven efficiency a big opportunity to reduce costs. The video in today's post takes a closer look at using the Pacejet API to integrate LTL shipment processing into any software or cloud application. The demo is a bit techy since we're using API endpoints and the Pacejet user interface, but the types of data involved, decisions, and options are useful for developers, users, and managers alike.

More Detail and Demo Videos on Using the Pacejet API for Improved Quoting and Shipping Across Your Business

Posted by Ron Lee on 1/14/16 2:49 PM

If your organization is growing and changing, perhaps adding new locations, acquiring new companies, or deploying new ecommerce websites, the Pacejet API might help you support improved quoting and shipping processes that save time and money. For example, if ecommerce expansion is on your radar for this year you could use the Pacejet API to integrate freight/LTL shipping options or expanded parcel choices into your new web sites. Alternatively, if your company acquires a new division with a custom, older, or different ERP system than the rest of your business, you could use the Pacejet API to easily integrate advanced quoting and shipping functionality without replacing the ERP. Whatever your quoting and shipping needs look like, the Pacejet API provides a modern, open, RESTful technology solution for leveraging a broad range of shipping services from our network of LTL, Parcel, and 3PL carriers and services. Today's post provides some additional detail on the Pacejet API with links to new demo videos that introduce the technology and demonstrate how it works.

End of Year Shipping Stress Can Help You Plan Improvements

Posted by Ron Lee on 12/18/15 6:22 AM

December can be a stressful month for many business shippers as extra demand, tighter deadlines, and labor challenges often force some visible "stress fractures" in order fulfillment processes. Common examples of an over-stressed fulfillment process include slow-downs and delays from surging volumes, increased costs from expedited shipping requests, more lost, damaged, or mistaken shipments, and larger-than-normal gaps between what you expected a shipment to cost and what shows up on the carrier invoice. It's not much fun, we don't need to tell YOU that, but what if those end of year stresses could be put to good use making next year better? The good news about all the end of year rush and stress is that it will give you an oversized set of data to highlight improvement strategies. Here are some of our top recommendations for using all that extra shipping data and your end of year challenges to make NEXT year less stressful.
