Urgent deliveries are often sent by parcel and delivered by express service providers. Each service provider needs "its" specific shipping labels to efficiently carry out the delivery to the customer. Transport service providers and freight forwarders with a certified SAP interface can print shipping labels directly from SAP R/3 (or S/4) or SAP EWM / TM using the Extended SAP Express Ship interface integrated in SAP EWM.
Furthermore, SAP makes it possible to determine required data for shipment status services online via the tracking number of service providers, to assign it to the inbound or outbound delivery and to print a delivery list (manifest) of the service provider as well as shipping labels.
In addition, track & trace functions of different service providers can be integrated in SAP. This enables the sender and recipient to retrieve status information about the shipment of the package at any time via the Internet.
