Implementing a Warehouse Management Solution will help streamline warehouse operations. Processes such as scan picking and packing, goods receiving, stock tranfers and stocktaing are made efficient and accurate with a WMS Solution.
The next part to a WMS is now having the ability to integrate with Freight. This now becomes a Supply Chain Solution. If you are implementing a Warehouse Management Solution and it doesn't have the ability to integrate with your Freight Carrier such as Startrack, Toll, eParcel, IFS, UPS, Fedex, then you are not going to gain all the efficiencies you should.
Having your ERP integrate with your Freight Carrier is no longer relevant. To gain full efficiencies it is now imperative that your Warehouse Management Solution does this so the complete solution is streamlined.
If your WMS is only offering WMS with no freight integration then this is only 70% of the solution that you need to be competitive in today's market. Having the freight integration with your WMS, means that your warehouse team can print the right labels for the cartons or pallets straight away, have the manifest for the drivers automatically produced and have the correct freight charge on the invoice for your customer instantly.
