Shipment Process Automation workflow
RPA can automate the manual processes and save time as well as costs. It can extract shipment details from incoming emails, log jobs in your scheduling systems, and provide pick-up times in customer/carrier portals. RPA can integrate multiple systems to streamline processes. It can integrate with freight bill payment systems to automate the complete order-to-cash process for hundreds of large 3PL carriers. The software bot can automatically scan and capture carrier website data, track information and invoice amount too. It also helps in automating email communications taking place between the entities involved.
