Connecting your transport partners. With the Westernacher eXpress Tool for SAP EWM, ERP and TM.
In order to send packages or pallets from SAP EWM, ERP or TM, you first need an agreement with the respective CEP (courier, express and parcel services) service provider. Each of these carriers will then have the data for the package, e.g. sender, recipient, size, weight, etc. to determine the label that should be applied.
Since interfaces to the carriers are not standardized, we need software that handles communication with the carrier and prints the label. Additional services such as cancellation of parcels and track & trace to shipping should also be implemented.
Westernacher has developed a solution with eXpress that makes the complete handling of shipping possible from within your SAP system. Seamlessly and smoothly because our solution is completely integrated in SAP.
