And what if you, in addition to this, would be able to meet your customers’ high demands for notifications, traceability, and fast deliveries, all while cutting the time you spend administrating deliveries and returns to almost zero.

Logistics for E-commerce – Funnier than it Sounds

Logistics for e-commerce and transport management sounds about as exciting as VAT management and bookkeeping. No one loves it, but all online retailers must be able to manage this. Therefore, you should always choose a system that can handle all the tedious tasks for you.

 

A system that both converts more customers by enhancing the checkout experience, and creates more satisfied customers due to a better delivery experince. 

 

It is not just about freeing up precious working hours for you in the here and now. It is also about setting up a system that is designed to be a propellant for growth. A system that both converts more customers by enhancing the checkout experience, and creates more satisfied customers due to a better delivery experince. 

 

The Connection Between Reduced Logistics Management and Growth

If you want your e-commerce business to grow, you need a system that can manage your logistics and the transportations – the deliveries and the returns – in an as automated a way as possible. More specifically, you need a functional and automated digital logistics system.

 

Imagine how nice it would be not getting all those calls from customers asking: “Where is the package?” anymore because they will be getting their packages instead.

 

The value of an automated logistics system rises in time with increased demand for your goods. This is especially true if the system has been built into the platform and is packed with clever features. Once in place, it will grease both your logistic and your e-commerce flows and make it possible to give your customers what they want most of all: peace on earth. Just kidding, but you will be able to provide them with:

  1. faster deliveries,
  2. full control over where the package is
  3. and the power over how it is delivered.

There are many transport management systems on the market, but with LogTrade Connect you can do all of this and still get more time to just kick back and relax. Sounds pretty neat, right?

LogTrade Connect and LogTrade’s Multi Carrier Checkout

By using one of the five leading e-commerce platforms on the market, designed to give you total control over your e-commerce business, you have got a solution that will fit your company like a glove.

 

You select which carriers your customers can choose between.

 

The logistics module LogTrade Connect, and the Multi Carrier Checkout is also designed to give online retailers full control.

 

"A Multi Carrier ..." What?

We, at LogTrade, have developed a Multi Carrier Checkout in cooperation with the Swedish-Danish postal service, PostNord. The checkout makes it possible for you to offer your customers:

  • New delivery options that can easily be customized in the platform. No further development is necessary.
  • Delivery options that are automatically adjusted based on where the customer is, enabling them to choose the delivery office they prefer from a map.
  • Graphic renditions of carriers and their delivery options make it possible for the customer to choose the option they prefer based on variables such as price or fast delivery―super easily and without losing their temper.

Even though the checkout was developed together with PostNord, it can be used with a variety of carriers. You select which carriers your customers can choose between. If you want to include, for example, DHL, Bring and Budbee in your checkout, that is no problem at all.

Your customers would then see all DHL service points on a map and can for example select a home delivery from Bring or Budbee.
