    Compiere 2.5.3a
    Oracle 10g

    Hi,

    I'm wondering how people are handling integrating Compiere with shipping companies (UPS, Fedex, DHL, etc).  Are you exporting your shipping data into the companies shipping system or are you directly mapping the Compiere tables to the shipping software?  Or something else?

    Currently we export our shipment data as a CSV file and import it into the UPS worldship software or Fedex Ship Manager software.  However, the Compiere data structure and workflow (which I do not yet fully understand) might make this problematic.  So I'm wondering if other people have dealt with this issue and come up with a robust solution that is fully automated where possible.

    Any thoughts?

      Hi there,

      we created an interface for UPS to get things automatically done. Also interfaces are desingend for 3rd partie suppliers of multi carrier solutions.

      Some contraints are important (pre calculated shipping costs is never reliable as packing information is not yet reliable).

      Just send me a PM - but aware that this will not be open source.

      cheers

        Can you give some examples of this?  Is Kewill Clippership one you support.

        Thanks,

    • Does anyone know if there is any plan to get this functionality into the releases?

      I would think this would be pretty much stanard for most users.

      I am currently evaluating Compiere for implementation at my company?

      Thanks,
      brian
