Save time and resources

Less manual effort and massive acceleration through automation of your processes. The integration of ERP and other upstream systems, the accessibility of all your transport service providers via an interface to dbh and the inclusion of adjacent processes make it possible. A uniform user interface for all transport service providers ensures smooth and error-free processes with minimized training time in all phases of dispatch processing. With Advantage Delivery, a process with many steps can be reduced to a handful of clicks or even fully automated thanks to our workflow management.

Easy connection of all transport service providers

Only a single interface to dbh! The connection and data communication with all carriers (freight forwarders, courier, express and parcel service providers) is managed centrally by us. Our shipping system automatically takes into account the specific requirements for labels, documents or loading lists. Changes to the service provider interface or to the specifications? You won’t notice any of this, because we are constantly updating it. A change of transport service provider or the addition of another one is therefore possible quickly and easily without any technical effort on your part.

360 degree transparency

You and the sales team maintain a maximum overview of all freight orders, information on packages and the progress of your shipments. To ensure that other areas of the company also benefit from up-to-date data, it is possible to return the status to your upstream systems. Maximum transparency for your customers too: the integrated Track & Trace function automatically sends tracking e-mails and also provides the recipient with documents such as invoices.

Optimize shipping costs

Turn five into one: the integrated shipment consolidation runs fully automatically, so that you not only save costs directly by consolidating shipments, but also eliminate the need for manual effort in the hectic day-to-day shipping business. In addition, our freight costs module helps your employees to quickly find the most cost-effective service provider for the shipping case at hand from all possible options. A rule-based control system enables further automation of this process step. Knowing your actual expenses also opens up savings potential: Manage even large tariff structures, calculate freight costs and simplify your freight audit. Incoming freight cost invoices are automatically checked, miscalculations are identified and additional costs are avoided.

Win-win for customs and shipping

More added value through networking: integrated customs clearance via the dbh Advantage Customs software speeds up your processes for individual parcels and collective customs clearance of entire pallets. At the same time, it ensures that no parcel is handed over to the transport service provider without an export accompanying document. Functions such as sanctions list check and confirmation of arrival ensure further acceleration and legally secure your shipping process.

What is a shipping system?

A shipping system, also known as shipping software, helps companies with shipping processing and the optimization of all associated shipping processes – from the posting of goods to delivery to the final recipient.
Without software, shipping employees have to log into the web frontend of each shipping service provider individually, manually transfer each order to the order mask and – if different shipping partners are used – laboriously compare all carriers before the actual order can be placed. With multi-carrier shipping software such as Advantage Delivery, the shipping process for all carriers used is bundled in just one application. Data is automatically transferred from your merchandise management systems to the shipping software and the user can compare the different service providers and services directly and select the appropriate service. Label printing, data transfer to the service provider and shipment tracking are then controlled directly via the shipping software. By the way: if you choose a carrier-neutral shipping system such as Advantage Delivery, you ensure that your employees always work with the same user interface. This means less training, less potential for errors and faster processes.

Can I connect any carrier to Advantage Delivery?

Yes, as long as the freight forwarder or courier, express or parcel service provider provides an interface for data transmission. dbh already has a large number of standard connections, but it is also easy to add other service providers.

Does the software adapt to my individual processes?

Advantage Delivery integrates itself into your processes and supports the individual requirements of your company, including through customized workflow management. In addition, it is also important for us to work with you during the software implementation process to examine what other process optimization options Advantage Delivery offers you and how we can work together to achieve the optimum for you.

Which functions are included in the basic price?

With Advantage Delivery, you receive tools such as Track & Trace, dangerous goods processing and much more as standard. Because for us, an effective shipping system involves more than just label printing and consignment handover. In addition, Advantage Delivery always adapts to your current needs in different packages.

Which systems can Delivery be connected to?

In addition to the connection to all transport service providers, we can connect any upstream system – whether a classic ERP from a wide range of manufacturers (as an SAP partner, we offer our own plug-ins and add-ons) or our own development, WMS or store system. It does not matter in which state the data is transmitted via the interface. We make the data suitable and also return status information to your systems.
