Featured Image

Want to find out how FreightPOP's NetSuite integration can revolutionize heavy shippers' efficiency, accuracy, and overall logistics performance? Discover how a leading tape and adhesive manufacturer in the beauty industry did just that! 

Today's customer spotlight shines a light on a company processing up to 5,600 monthly shipments, including:

  • 800-1,000 parcel, ground, and express shipments
  • 1,300 domestic
  • 900 international
  • And 100+ international HAZMAT shipments 

Customer's Challenges:


Single Carrier Reliance and Time Wastage


Before this manufacturer came to FreightPOP, FedEx handled 80-90% of their shipping. They realized that the absence of competitive shipping rates was hindering their cost-saving efforts, and they faced the challenge of time-consuming processes, spending an average of 5-10 minutes per parcel and up to an hour arranging large shipments.

Additionally, much of their shipping is liquid chemicals and solutions, requiring them to generate certificates of origin, commercial invoices, and HAZMAT documentation, which was essentially a manual process requiring staff and time.

NetSuite Integration


Finally, any transportation management system (TMS) this manufacturer considered to help resolve their issues had to smoothly integrate with NetSuite, as their point-of-sale/retail solution is NetSuite's SuiteCommerce.

In short, the company required solutions for:

  • fedex air waybill form 023Manual and Time-Consuming Processes

The customer had been manually copying and pasting information from Adobe Reader into their system for FedEx shipments, particularly for a specific shipment type that required an Air Waybill form 023. This was a lengthy process that led to inefficiencies and input errors.

  • Lack of Streamlined Rating and Documentation

The customer needed a more streamlined way to rate shop for shipments and produce documents for HAZMAT shipments. They required a solution to handle custom forms and integrate with NetSuite to meet their specific requirements.
