Don’t Let Your Old Routing Guide Cost You Millions

eCommerce supply chain spend is rising rapidly with the last mile representing more than 50% of transportation costs. Success means retailers must be able to balance rising costs with demands for speed and improvements in customer experience — but without the resources and scale leaders like Amazon have.

Convey Initiate is a robust last-mile TMS that automatically decisions and dispatches the ideal carrier for the job across all modes, service levels and fulfillment models.

Optimize Transportation Spend with Dynamic, Multi-Mode Rate Shopping

Cross mode support for parcel, LTL, and white glove gives you the flexibility to more intelligently execute shipments by considering all your fulfillment options for parcel, freight or the gray area in between.

Compare and identify the ideal rates, modes and service levels for any shipment across all your carriers. Execute and schedule shipments automatically via API, PO Ingestion, or manual input. Decision and dispatch the right carrier every time based on performance history, product details, and customer requirements.

Power Outcome-Driven Transportation Management with Machine Learning

Optimize for outcomes and ensure you always choose the best carrier for the job, with the optimal selection for your desired balance of cost, speed and customer experience.

Reduce Costs by Enforcing 100% Dropship Vendor Compliance

Standardize and improve the way you work with dropshippers on your bill-to. Create 100% compliance, automate shipment creation, manage SLAs, and enforce weight and classification accuracy at scale.

Dynamically generated shipping documentation saves time and ensures accuracy. Flexible pickup scheduling options make accommodating vendors needs easy while ensuring the ideal carrier is selected every time. Compliance reporting helps you identify top offenders so that you can address the issue at the source. Identify missing data, incorrect bookings, and even packaging failures that impact your customer experience.

Minimize Spend and Simplify the Returns Process

Consumer returns have grown exponentially, taking a toll on eCommerce margins and shipments are more often booked with the most convenient carrier rather than the cost optimized solution. Initiate simplifies the returns execution process to drive more efficient reverse logistics programs.

Initiate makes generating and scheduling these shipments easy and cost effective by optimizing the return carrier selection, automatically generating print-ready labels and BOLs with consumer-friendly instructions, and powering easy consumer facing pickup scheduling.
