SAP Shipping Solutions
Shipping With SAP Just Got a Whole Lot Easier!
When it comes to distribution and fulfillment, SAP can do a lot for your business. If, however, your business relays on shipping products to your customers, SAP falls a bit short. If you were not aware, SAP does not offer shipping execution as part of its standard product. We call this the shipping “black hole”.
To fill this black hole, businesses running SAP have two options: 1) integrate an external shipping application with all its costs, complexities, and on-going support;, or 2)consider implementing a native SAP business add-on that allows enterprise users to rate, ship, and track their small parcel and freight shipments without ever leaving SAP. Nexxio's SAP shipping platform is a global multi-carrier, multi-modal shipping system that is certified by SAP and your carriers. It quickly and easily installs into your existing SAP landscape (in its own namespace; and since it’s leveraging your existing investment in SAP, you can deploy shipping to any plant, anywhere in the world
It's also easy to use. From a single scan, our native SAP transaction retrieves order information from a standard SAP Delivery/Shipment, weighs, rates, ships, and prints all required labels and documents. Once shipped, the Delivery/Shipment is automatically updated with freight amount and tracking number, and can even trigger PGI if you need it to. In fact, because our solution is a native SAP transaction, there is not much that it can’t do.
When it comes to shipping, an SAP system should be easy to use. It should easily fit into existing workflows and adapt to new business requirements. It’s all about making shipping straight-forward, fast, accurate and landscape native; and that’s why millions of packages each year are shipped on systems provided by Nexxio.

Correct and Validate Addresses in SAP
Innocent addressing errors can add up to big money. The Data Warehousing Institute estimates that poor contact data costs U.S. businesses a staggering $ 600 billion dollars each year. The on-time delivery of a customer's order begins with a valid and deliverable address. If all components of a shipping address aren't correct, then at best you'll incur fees from carriers and at worst you shipment won't get to your customer as promised. Nexxio's address validation for SAP is a native business add-on that provides address correction and validation functionality right from many standard SAP transactions including Sales Order, Customer Master, Vendor Master, and Business Partner. Once implemented our address validation component interactively verifies, standardizes and appends data to ensure you have validated the deliverability of each address every time.
