Have you ever wondered what the various benefits of bringing your supply chain online might be? Wonder no more - here are three iron-clad reasons to make going digital a top priority this season. (And here's four more!)
1. Improve Access to Real-time, Actionable Information
Real-time data on your products is vital. Accumulate real-time data on your shipment location and track shipments by product ID, name, or purchase order — for your internal teams and suppliers. Shippabo’s SKU-level visibility allows shippers to see the cost of moving their inventory down to a single product, and know where those products are with real-time location tracking. No more guesswork.
2. Better Collaboration Across Supply Chain Partners and Internal Stakeholders
Managing an entire supply chain by yourself can get chaotic. Cut through the noise: now creating and sharing reports is simple. No more printing or sharing spreadsheets. Our platform provides the tools you need to automatically generate and send information to the right people at the right time. Features like scheduled reports and automation take the pressure off. Keep all your conversations in one place, so no one misses a beat. Use in-app messaging to communicate directly with your team, supplier, and Shippabo. Make notes and check statuses within shipments. At Shippabo, we value your connections and support these critical relationships.
3. Technology as an Early Warning System
Being proactive is non-negotiable to stay afloat in this industry. Having an integrated online supply chain management system is an essential prevention strategy. Stay on top of shipments without lifting a finger. Automatically receive in-app and email notifications on changes to the shipment schedules, U.S. Customs statuses, and delivery confirmation.

Why transfer everything online?
We’ve all heard an adage about not fixing something that isn’t broken. While something may not be broken, it could be better. We understand the reluctance to change anything that may be disruptive to our logistical systems; we have decades of combined shipping and logistics experience too. However, with higher consumer demands regarding everything from faster shipping times, increased returns, more shopping, and sustainable operations, operating in this age must embrace adopting emerging technologies. We can help. Every client goes through a trial period to ensure that all parties are happy before fully committing to Shippabo. We want you to find the right solution for your business needs. At Shippabo, our customers can bring in their existing partners and contacts to increase efficiency and allow them to communicate within one single platform - this helps diversify their supply chain network and dramatically lowers their risk (just like investments). We love seeing our customers succeed, and the Shippabo platform provides the capacity and infrastructure to grow with you or help you scale. Ready to make your supply chain work for you?
