Worldwide Express Shipping Technology Simplifies Shipping Invoices and Beyond

A shipping invoice isn’t just another bill to pay. It can be an at-a-glance source of valuable information about your shipping. But keeping track of parcel and freight invoices can be a hassle, especially if you’re dealing with several carriers or shipping modes. Monthly or one-off invoices arrive on different dates, with varied billing cycles and formats in which the information is displayed. Harnessing the data in an organized way can be inconvenient and time-consuming, particularly if you don’t have innovative shipping technology that assists across your logistics operations.

What if, instead, you could have all pertinent shipping information consistently organized and presented in an easy-to-read format at the same time each month? When you partner with Worldwide Express, you can have one consolidated freight and parcel invoice for all your shipping modes. No more sifting through stacks of documents or trying to marry up different invoices from different carriers. With Worldwide Express, and our SpeedShip® transportation management system, it’s all in one place. This helps you:

  • Streamline. With multiple carriers — each with their own billing cycle — managing, paying and reviewing invoices can get complex. Worldwide Express simplifies this by consolidating all your parcel and freight carrier invoices into one, making it easier to manage and pay bills.
  • Compare. Getting a clear view of your spending across multiple carriers can be daunting. Worldwide Express simplifies this task. A consolidated parcel and freight invoice makes it much easier to compare rates, charges and services across carriers — giving you a better understanding of their value and your shipping activity. It also allows you to conduct a freight audit to identify opportunities for streamlining and cost savings.
  • Customize. Worldwide Express knows not all businesses have identical recordkeeping needs. That’s why we enable you to tailor the information displayed on your invoices to your specific requirements. Whether you prefer to categorize charges by carrier, sales order, customer, inbound vs outbound shipments, GL code, or other parameters, Worldwide Express can create the freight or parcel invoice that works best for you. We also provide it in either PDF or CSV format.
  • Improve accuracy. Worldwide Express consolidated invoices provide a single monthly overview of your shipping activities, ensuring that you have a clear picture of your expenses and making it easier to detect any billing errors or discrepancies.
  • Simplify recordkeeping. SpeedShip®, our transportation management system (TMS), saves invoices for easy retrieval whenever you need them.
  • Gain a strategic advantage. Having all your shipping information in one invoice helps you easily track and monitor expenses, identify trends, and make informed decisions to optimize your supply chain based on accurate and up-to-date information.

Worldwide Express Technology Goes Way Beyond Just Invoicing

The Worldwide Express transportation management system (TMS) offers a robust solution for businesses seeking to optimize their logistics and supply chain operations — and helps improve your shipping beyond just invoices. Our advanced platform provides a multitude of benefits that streamline shipping processes, enhance efficiency, and reduce operational costs. Here’s an in-depth look at the key advantages of using the Worldwide Express SpeedShip® TMS beyond just invoicing.

Enhanced Visibility and Tracking

One of the primary benefits of SpeedShip is the enhanced visibility it offers across the entire shipping process. Users can track shipments in real-time, from pickup to delivery, ensuring they always know the status of their cargo. This level of transparency is crucial for managing expectations and planning more effectively. It also helps in quickly addressing any issues that may arise during transit, thereby improving reliability and customer satisfaction.

Cost Efficiency

SpeedShip helps businesses reduce shipping costs through intelligent route planning and carrier selection. The system analyzes various factors such as distance, shipment size, and delivery timelines to suggest the most cost-effective and efficient shipping options. By optimizing these elements, companies can significantly lower their transportation expenses while still meeting their logistical needs.

Improved Inventory Management

With the Worldwide Express TMS, businesses can better manage their inventory levels through API integrations with their own platforms. This will allow for more accurate forecasting and demand planning, which helps in maintaining optimal inventory levels. This reduces the risk of overstocking or stockouts, ensuring that resources are utilized efficiently and that capital is not tied up unnecessarily in excess inventory.

Scalability and Flexibility

As businesses grow, their shipping needs become more complex. SpeedShip is designed to scale and adapt to changing business requirements. Whether it’s increasing shipment volumes, expanding into new markets, or adjusting to seasonal fluctuations, the TMS can accommodate these changes seamlessly. This flexibility ensures that businesses can continue to operate efficiently without the need for constant system upgrades or replacements.

Enhanced Customer Service

The Worldwide Express TMS contributes to better customer service by ensuring timely deliveries and providing accurate shipment information. Customers appreciate transparency and promptness, and the ability to utilize our customer support chat and FAQ self-help bar helps you maximize the platform. Additionally, the efficiency of the TMS means that businesses can respond more swiftly to customer inquiries and resolve any issues faster.

Integration Capabilities

Another significant advantage of the Worldwide Express TMS is its ability to integrate with other software systems used by businesses, such as ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and CRM (Customer Relationship Management) systems. This integration facilitates a smoother flow of information across different departments, improving coordination and reducing the likelihood of errors.

Data Analytics and Reporting

The Worldwide Express TMS provides powerful analytics and reporting tools that help businesses gain insights into their shipping operations. These insights can be used to identify trends, pinpoint inefficiencies, and make informed decisions about future logistics strategies. By leveraging data, companies can continuously improve their processes and maintain a competitive edge in the market.
