Smarter Shipping

August 2018 Update

It's approaching the end of August now and I thought this would be the perfect time to let you know what we've been working on these past few months. This is going to be a big update so I'll break it down into three sections for you which will be Carriers, Channels and Features.

Carriers

ILG

In this update we have 1 carrier integration to let you know about which is ILG. ILG were founded in 1990 and has grown to be a strong competitor within the fulfilment, warehousing and logistics services markets due to their large clientele with more than 700 clients worldwide and significant force in the logistics industry as they ship thousands of shipments every day!

if you would like to start connecting your ILG account to your Shiptheory account you can do so by clicking here and from there you'll just need to enter your ILG account information as per the picture below. When this is done you'll be ready to start booking and automating your ILG labels.

Channels

Dear Systems

The first of two channels that we've introduced is Dear Systems. Dear is a popular inventory management software that was founded in 2012 by a group of software developers and accountants who created a list of needs and wished from business owners and came together to create a software to fulfil those requests.

now unlike most of our integrations Dear have actually built into us so rather than going into your Shiptheory account to set all this up you would start setting up from Dear's side of things, we have a guide you can follow to start getting your Dear account connected here. After you've connected your account to Shiptheory you'll be ready to start automating your shipment booking from Dear!

Amazon

The last channel on this update is the eCommerce giants who started out as an online bookstore on July 5th 1994 and are now, 24 years later, the most popular online marketplace used for all kinds of goods and now you can integrate your Amazon Sellers account to Shiptheory!

Amazon has been a popular request for obvious reasons so we've now added the functionality to connect your Amazon Sellers account and import all your orders to Shiptheory from there, enabling you to automate all of your Amazon shipments and take a lot of hours manually booking in each order and spend them doing more meaningful things!

If you'd like to start getting setup with our Amazon integration you can take a look at our article detailing how exactly to do this. If you have any questions regarding this integration, I've included a link to our support page at the end of this blog so feel free to send us a message!

Features

Manual Shipments Creation

Our first feature we've implements over the past few months is one that has been long requested and one that will hopefully see a lot of use, we've now added a page where you can now create shipments from within Shiptheory!

These shipments will function just as if they were imported from a channel so your shipping rules will still apply, if you'd like to start booking in shipments through Shiptheory you can do this here. It should all be quite easy to fill in but if you have any questions or suggestions about the page feel free to let us know.

Shipping Rates

Our last feature and new implementation that we've made over the last few months is the introduction of shipping rates into Shiptheory! for now this only supports a certain group of carriers but for those carriers you'll be able to see how much each shipment has costed you as per the gif below.

If you'd like to see exactly how to do this you can follow the guide here!
