DAT-MAIL users can now connect to multiple logistics providers right from inside DAT-MAIL.

wbSCAN™ is a browser based real-time scanning capability uses hand-held, tablet or desktop devices that helps DAT-MAIL users:

  • Activate Pallets – Users can records pallets being produced and assigns them to a staging area or rack location.

DAT-MAIL Priority Mail Open and Distribute (PMOD) Module

DAT-MAIL users can now easily manage Priority Mail Open and Distribute drop shipping! Right along with our other multi-carrier logistics connectivity for drop shipping, now you can also easily use the USPS Priority Mail Open and Distribute services for drop shipping.

Why use PMOD for drop shipping?

  • Smaller drop ship volumes that do not lend themselves to full truckloads.
  • Consolidator handles your drop ship volume but some mailings are too time sensitive to go through the usual consolidation process.
  • Your production processes are running behind schedule—make up time in shipping.
  • Time sensitive mailings that need more expedited handling than usual.
  • Delivery trouble spots that consistently take longer for delivery than other areas.

DAT-MAIL users can now request quotes for Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) drop shipments right from DAT-MAIL! Using the wb.truckdirectmail.com interface, users can submit quote requests to TDM and almost instantly receive pricing for drop shipments.
