DAT-MAIL Toolbox offers these additions to the DAT-MAIL benefits detailed above:
Palletization module assures each pallet is documented so that you can print barcoded placards and skid sheets for every pallet. Scan these pallets to create statements and 8125's. With our new Trailer Assignment capability, you can also scan pallets when they are loaded on a trailer to create bills of lading and create an audit trail for every pallet produced!
The Work Ticket program can create mailing work tickets for each drop without lots of data entry, even when your own business or production management system can not. With the Palletization program, the statements you generate will have the correct pallet counts so you won't have to edit the statements to correct the container information. The Planalyzer will tell you on what date every drop must be shipped to meet in-home delivery dates, taking transportation schedules and USPS® processing hours into consideration. This saves time and eliminates guesswork.
Planalyzer can reduce transportation costs and provides high return on investment: Just because your presort program told you that you can drop ship to an entry point does not mean you should if you are looking to save money. When you take freight costs into consideration, it may not pay to do a drop shipment. DAT-MAIL's Planalyzer will show you the least expensive way to do a mailing considering presort qualification, possible postage savings and freight costs. With the palletization module making sure that every pallet is documented, you can also run reports that will identify drop ship savings opportunities for a given ship date that could help you overcome economic minimums. Helps you shop for the best transportation providers. You can load in freight tables from multiple carriers and analyze your jobs to see who can provide the best price and service.
Are you still paying Origin-based postal rates on your drop ship mailings?
If so, we can help you reduce operational costs by getting greater USPS postage discounts! CoPal is a copalletization program for processing USPS Marketing Mail® (formerly Standard Mail) Letter mail that will allow you to profit from bigger Drop Ship discount for entries to USPS Sectional Center Facilities (SCFs), Area Distribution Centers (ADC’s), National Distribution Centers (NDC’s), and Destination Delivery Units (DDU’s).
The Copal program supports both internal copal processing as well as third-party copal.
The ability to print barcoded placards and skid sheets for every pallet and scan them when the pallet is produced and loaded for shipment adds a degree of control that few mailers have with ‘finished mail'.
