Carrier Connect can be integrated directly into SAP® ERP/WM/EWM via a single fixed interface. For companies with SAP® ERP and SAP S/4HANA®, our partner AEB offers the SAP® plug-in for Carrier Connect. For companies with SAP® EWM, HPC has developed an interface that enables integration without detour via the SAP® ERP system.
With the help of Carrier Connect, labels and orders can be created directly from the SAP® system and shipping orders, for example, can be created quickly and conveniently by the user. Carrier Connect also provides tracking and tracing data and delivers status updates of carriers back to the SAP® system. There, users have access to an up-to-date overview of all orders and shipments of the various transport partners at all times.
The integration for Carrier Connect into standard processes and user dialogs is carried out without modification using standard SAP® technologies. The interface HPC.EWM Carrier Integration Interface (CIIF) developed by HPC combines the Express Shipment Interface (ESI) included in the standard SAP® EWM and the Carrier Connect backend of AEB into a lean solution. The developed interface uses the ESI standard to control the Carrier Connect Backend of AEB via only one interface. The communication between the HPC proprietary development and the AEB back end takes place via a web service. The handling of the carrier connect backend is realized by AEB.
With Carrier Connect, companies benefit from an intuitive and lean solution that helps to secure business objectives and implement end-to-end logistics processes in real time without manual processes.
