Direct Couriers

In today’s world of ever-changing technology, streamlining your processes isn't enough. You need to do more than eliminate risks, increase productivity and reduce costs. You need to do more than keep up with innovations – because they’re
already a step behind. It’s why at Cloudster Connect, we don’t just help you integrate your business systems to work faster and simpler, we help you go beyond your competition, your budget, your clients & suppliers. To see further, plan better and prepare for the future. We help you get a step ahead.

With offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Auckland; Direct Couriers provide taxi truck, courier, semi trailer and container unpacks for many freight forwarders, brokers and warehouses.

In our interactions for freight forwarders in Australia and New Zealand, we often identified users spending considerable time on Direct Courier Websites. This included creating jobs manually from data already entered in CargoWise One, then tracking the job manually through the same website, then tracking Proof Of Delivery's (POD's) for each delivery.

In keeping with our vision of helping you keep one step ahead, we have built partnerships with Direct Couriers to bring Native CargoWise One to Direct Courier Integration

Operations

Data in CargoWise One, be it a Warehouse Job (W Job) / Forwarding Shipment (S Job) / Brokerage Job (B Job), is triggered to send required data to Cloudster Connect via eAdapter. Once received, our services communicate with Direct Couriers' system to generate a relevant pickup or delivery job. Once a job is confirmed as booked by Direct Courier, we receive the job number which in turn is returned to your CargoWise One system, and commences the tracking process.

As the job is updated throughout it's lifecycle, we receive status updates. These updates are returned to your CargoWise One as events (located under Workflow and Tracking > Events tab), and where possible, we update the job also with actual delivery or pickup dates. POD's also attach themselves to your job under eDocs.

This process ties into CargoWise One' workflow engine and allows for automation using Direct Courier events for things like client notifications, task management, KPI monitoring and operational updates

Financial

For those who use Direct Couriers often, invoice reconiliation can prove to be a time consuming process.

We're commenced building Direct Courier Invoice to CargoWise One Accrual integration. Our solution processes AP Invoices directly from the supplier to your CargoWise One system. We even add invoice lines as a cost accrual to each job, thereby automating the data entry process and allowing your job profitability to be as accurate as possible
