SmartConsolidation: Optimise your shipping costs with our logistical support
We like to make things easy for you!
Do you recognise this?
Your business grew from a traditional role as a wholesaler into an omnichannel sales organisation. The number of orders increases but the order size and value decrease. Orders to the same customer are received multiple times a day and are often picked and prepared separately. This requires a lot of time and money, which is basically unnecessary.
The use of Smart Consolidation
SmartConsolidation can, in combination with the Transsmart Business Subscription, be used in various ways to reduce shipping costs. Depending on your process, your systems (e.g. a web shop, ERP variant and, whether or not, the availability of an WMS / sorting system) and the possibilities of the carrier, the most appropriate solution is found in association with your Transsmart consultant.
- Save transport costs through optimisation of your agreement.
- Spread order picking and preparation for shipping of shipments throughout the day.
- Automatic recalculation of transport costs on the basis of the consolidated shipment.
How does Smart Consolidation work?
The SmartConsolidation module is a module that is offered in combination with SmartBook&Print. Depending on the possibilities and stipulated contractual arrangements with your carrier, Transsmart can set up the consolidation process. All shipments that are shipped to the same consignee on the same day with the same carrier can be bundled into one (administrative) shipment in order that transport costs can be saved and the shipments can also be delivered as one whole.
As soon as the implementation is ready you no longer need to do anything for this. SmartConsolidation keeps up with your administration so that at the end of the day the advance notice file is offered to the carrier correctly (hence not 10 times 1 shipment but 1 shipment of 10 parcels). This way you no longer have to wait until all orders have been received but you can already start order picking and packing in the morning.
What does it cost?
Ask your Transsmart account manager about the costs.
