Integrating your webshop with the parcel shipping module from Transmate is an easy and convenient process! Using Shop specific connectors, such as Shopify, you can quickly integrate your webshop into the module. If your eCommerce platform is not compatible with the shop specific connector, you can utilize Transmate's Standard API to synchronize orders in real time.

With Transmate's parcel shipping module, the process of shipment from cart to order is optimized for both customers and business owners. Let's see the steps along the process:

  1. Customer checkout: Transmate calculates the boxing configuration for the order and calculates the shipping costs. This shipment cost is returned and is visible in the order summary.

  2. Fulfillment: After the customer confirms, the order data and the optimal boxing configuration is synced with Transmate. The order is transformed into a shipment and is listed as a task in the warehouse operation screen

  3. Pick & Pack: From their to do list, warehouse operators pick and pack the order and print shipping labels directly from the system. For this, Transmate shows the different shipping options and proposes a best-fit carrier.

  4. Tracking: Once the shipment has been picked up, Transmate actively tracks the shipment status, and updates all timestamps in the shipment. When the shipment has been delivered, the actual delivery time and proof of delivery is captured.

  5. Costs: Transmate accrues all costs and can verify parcel carrier invoice against calculated charges.

Transmate's parcel shipping module can save time and money for shippers by automating the process of boxing, during checkout and warehouse picking. The module utilizes an algorithm to calculate the ideal configuration, based on all available boxes in the warehouse, their dimensions and stacking rules. This helps reduce empty shipments, improve box utilization and ultimately lead to cost savings.

With Transmate's parcel shipping module, operators in the warehouse are able to operate with greater efficiency. An easy-to-use interface shows the items that need to be placed in each box. Once packed, the best fit shipping options are given, and booked from the interface with a simple click. Everything can be easily managed from the same system. The automated integration of booking shipments enables fast and efficient delivery of parcels.
