Carrier Connect can be integrated directly into SAP® ERP/WM/EWM via only one 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 a 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 carrier status updates back to the SAP® system. There, users have access to an up-to-date overview of all orders and shipments from the various transport partners at all times.

The integration for Carrier Connect into the standard processes and user dialogs takes place without modification via SAP® standard techniques. The 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 AEB’s Carrier Connect backend via a single interface. The communication of the HPC in-house development with the AEB backend takes place via a web service. The handling of the connection of the transport service providers is realized by AEB.
