LFS.iss (International Shipping System) from Ehrhardt + Partner (E+P) is a complete standalone shipping logistics solution. Whatever warehouse management system (WMS) you use, LFS.iss delivers an efficient and economical outgoing goods process, from routing to printing shipping labels and consignment dispatch. The key benefit? LFS.iss can connect to various CEP providers. As it is deployed in a private cloud, users also get a secure, high-performance system that delivers maximum availability. Updates are applied automatically. When it created LFS.iss, E+P bundled more than 30 years' experience of shipping logistics into a single product and added a further future-proof solution to its portfolio.
LFS.iss is the solution to achieve maximum efficiency for your outgoing goods. The integrated shipping system starts planning shipment soon after the order is received. All the relevant information for the order is used to generate a routing code for optimal routing, which is reported back to the WMS. After the goods are picked and packed, LFS.iss selects one of the available shipping service providers based on the relevant routing information. A barcoded shipping label is then created with all the relevant data, such as address, weight, number of packages, routing code and shipping unit number – always taking into account the specific requirements of each CEP provider. LFS.iss generates and prints a proof of delivery for the consignment for each specific parcel delivery service. The system also records and makes all the information available, such as the name of the collecting agent and the license plate of the vehicle. All the data is transferred quickly and securely to the service provider via EDI. When it comes to service providers, the new product is exceptionally flexible, as you can add more national or international transport service providers easily, as well as additional shipping methods and services too, such as COD, same-day delivery and express delivery – an absolute must as the boom in online trade continues.
High performance and maximum availability
LFS.iss is provided as a private cloud solution. E+P provides the necessary infrastructure at the data center of its subsidiary EPX, Ehrhardt + Partner Xtended, and sets up the connections to the various CEP providers. Managed Service is also available. This covers standardized services, such as administration, operation of the server, and comprehensive support for the software according to mutually defined criteria. Automatic system updates provide customers with a solution that is always up-to-date.
