Parcel Shipping API

    Hi everyone,

    Do you use a Shipping API that you integrated with D365?  We don't have enough shipping volume that justify going with fully integrated solution like SKGlobal. But we want to cut the double entry we are making in the FedEx/UPS/... software.  I'm looking at solution like EasyPost, ShipEngine, Shippo, ... that would need me to integrate one time and have access to multiple carrier.  Anyone have experience doing this and can give me hint of any kind?

    Thanks!

    We integrated with an application called Logistyx. While it provides access to LTL quotes, we mainly use it to automatically print our FedEx and UPS labels and integrate the charges and tracking numbers into D365. I’d be happy to discuss details with you if you are interested

    Thanks for your feedback Rhett.  I'm trying to avoid installing an application on premise.  I'm looking for a SaaS/WebAPI solution.

    It looks like Microsoft is adding that as a preview feature in April...

    Hi Steve, yes I saw this one too.  From what I understand I still have to implement a DLL to fill the gab between SPS interface and my carrier.  So instead of taking the risk of being limited to what SPS exposes, I'm more willing to implement all from scratch.

    Hi Steeve,

    Check out www.desktopshipper.com. We recently integrated with their fully cloud-based solution and are very happy with it. Their pricing model accommodates smaller volumes as well.

    Thanks,

    Phil
