Global shippers frequently use dozens of carriers to move goods, submitting booking requests and shipment instructions on multiple portals, via email, or by phone. Challenges, delays, and errors often result. E2open Bookings provides one consolidated application to coordinate ocean and over-the-road transport. Lighten your load and improve your logistics operations.
Bookings complicated by multi-party, multi-tier interactions
Inefficient manual processes increase overhead and the risk of errors and disruptions. For companies moving goods around the world, manual efforts can be time-consuming and convoluted, making shipping more challenging—especially when an organization needs agility to handle an unexpected event. Since global shipments often involve multiple parties and tiers, differing communication preferences among partners tend to multiply the effects of delays and errors.
Efficient, centralized shipment booking collaboration
Save time and eliminate redundant data entry by handling all shipments on one platform connected to the industry’s largest carrier network. Carriers can use the same system to receive and confirm bookings.
A single application enables you to eliminate manual transactions, emails, and phone calls and empower your logistics teams to efficiently plan each leg of a shipment.
See available routes and carriers
Rates and schedules capabilities give you a bird’s-eye view of available routes and carriers with options based on departure and arrival points, delivery dates, and modes.
Book or tender directly
You can book or tender directly with carriers across multiple legs and transport modes with one connection. The system transmits your request and returns a confirmation.
Share documents and instructions electronically
Multiple electronic formats for submitting required data to carriers help eliminate any potential delays in onboarding cargo and facilitate the transition away from manual processes.
Quickly expand your carrier network
E2open’s platform provides existing, reusable connectivity to the industry’s largest carrier community, enabling you to integrate rapidly with new carriers for additional modes or regions.
Easily transmit VGM data
The Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) treaty requires that shippers report verified gross mass (VGM) data to carriers. The application facilitates compliance while establishing an audit trail.
Increase in speed and on-time performance
Reduction in unplanned costs and fees
