Grow Your Sales with Advanced Drop Ship Capabilities

Drop ship programs represent a huge opportunity for brands, wholesalers and distributors to grow the business faster across dozens to hundreds of channels. But to eliminate barriers to onboarding new drop ship programs and channel relationships, you need a unified view of orders across all demand channels, from receipt to delivery.

TrueCommerce integration capabilities connect online orders, order status, shipment status, tracking information and inventory across all your channels with your key business systems—not just ERP but also eCommerce, shipping, and even product information management (PIM) and warehouse management (WMS). 

Now you can aggregate drop ship and other order data in your business system to enhance operational efficiency and drive faster fulfillment—no more dealing with multiple, single-channel solutions or worrying about custom integrations. 

This unified order management capability creates operational efficiencies that help you deliver a consistent experience to customers regardless of demand origination. Now you can optimize sales performance and inventory allocations across channels while managing for unique fulfillment requirements, such as meeting customer-specific deadlines. 

Five Essential Drop Ship Elements 

1. Connectivity

Join drop ship vendor programs from the world’s largest retailers, e-tailers and online marketplaces.

  • Automatically exchange transaction and inventory documents with trading partners, including POs, ASNs, and invoices
  • Connect with top retailers like Walmart, Target, Home Depot and hundreds more
  • Add new trading partners in days, not months 

 

“We do drop-shipping with Kohl's, which ranks their vendors on a monthly basis. Out of maybe 400 vendors, we've been ranked number one in peak season because we can consistently ship and deliver in a timely manner.”

2. Compliance

Easily meet diverse trading partner requirements to ensure an exceptional customer experience.

  • Accelerate fulfillment to conform to tight shipping timeframes
  • Automatically print compliant packing slips and shipping labels
  • Instantly send order acknowledgment documents to retailers

3. Integration

Expedite order processing by integrating your EDI with your ERP, online storefront and major marketplaces.

  • Provide near real-time shipping updates to maximize customer satisfaction
  • Eliminate multiple vendor portals with the TrueCommerce Foundry integration gateway
  • Ensure accurate, synchronized data across your business systems

“Retailers want to know the tracking number as soon as we have it, and they want us to invoice them ASAP. If we’re processing an order manually, sending tracking data and invoicing the retailer takes significant time. With EDI those tasks are instantaneous.”
