Extended SAP Express Ship Interface®

Shipping processing directly in SAP

IGZ integrates overlapping processes in connection with SAP-certified transport and express service providers directly with the Extended SAP Express Ship interface.

This eliminates the need for third-party software components and interfaces for printing shipping labels. The comprehensive track & trace functions of general cargo and parcel service providers can be integrated directly in the SAP system with Extended SAP Express Ship Interface.

The complete mapping of the shipping process in SAP minimizes interfaces and guarantees maximum investment protection through independence.

Extended SAP Express-Ship-Interface

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.
