Why Isn't TMS Enough?
Industry experts predict that a whopping 266 BILLION packages will ship annually by 2026. Simply put, a TMS doesn’t have the intelligence to navigate the growing number of shipping options and parcel strategies (such as same-day shipping, omnichannel fulfillment, and advanced carrier rate shopping) that allow your business to thrive.
Multi-Carrier Shipping Software (MCSS) is utilized by top retailers, manufacturers and 3PLs to navigate the evolving logistics landscape by only focusing on the parcel aspect of shipping. This allows enterprise shippers to benefit from the end-to-end optimization of getting products to your customers cost-effectively and in compliance while meeting or exceeding your customers’ delivery expectations.
So what is Multi-Carrier Shipping Software?
Multi-carrier shipping software, specifically ProShip, provides advanced parcel shipping functionality with powerful, flexible architecture to onboard a multitude of carriers, utilize the most advanced rate shopping functionality in the industry, expand omnichannel fulfillment strategies and more. It seamlessly integrates into your existing technology stack (OMS/eCom, WMS, ERP, etc) to further reduce costs within your supply chain.
