The Hidden Costs of Shipping are Lurking in the Front Office

Shipping and logistics optimization is a key element of managing large production operations, but corporate front office shipping is often overlooked. Ignoring the importance of front office shipping can cost more than just time for businesses. While desktop shipping can seem like a mundane component of a large enterprise’s operation, it can quietly consume significant budget – and it could even be vulnerable to compliance violations.

By establishing aScreen Shot 2015-12-01 at 11.08.26 AM desktop shipping management system that is used throughout the organization, companies gain the visibility and control needed to implement shipping policies, leverage carrier relationships or contracts, and manage costs. Any potential shipping compliance risks can also be mitigated through centralized rules and compliance checks in the platform. Employees reclaim time spent wading through different carriers and rulesets while businesses see reduction in costs, risk and operational blind spots.

Precision Software provides a web-enabled Desktop Shipping user interface using the same transportation management system engine that supports production shipping but was specifically developed with the infrequent user in mind. Our Desktop Shipping solution is used in a wide range of industries including manufacturing, high-tech, retail, information services, and education.
