What You Need to Know About NetSuite Shipping Automation Solutions

Why You Should Invest in Solutions That Automate NetSuite Shipping

Businesses running NetSuite have options when it comes to fulfilling orders and automating shipping labels. As a company grows, it can often get by without automation tools right at the start, but as order demand grows and complexity increases, considering a solution to remove manual steps and automatically determine shipping decisions is often the right next step. When thinking about your fulfillment operation, if you:

  • Know you can be saving money on shipping costs, but don’t know how
  • Frequently experience warehouse mistakes due to manual processes and human decision making
  • Are wasting money using multiple systems to produce shipping labels and shipping documentation just to stay compliant with carrier and trade partner requirements
  • Want to save time on fulfillment

… then it’s time to consider a NetSuite shipping automation solution.

NetSuite Shipping Label Automation & Documentation Creation

One of the ways that ShipHawk can help you automate your NetSuite shipping process is through documentation creation and label automation. Because documentation and labels are a crucial part of fulfillment, ShipHawk allows for customization with a variety of templates to suit your specific needs. With advanced customization, you can build your own label templates and add them to your ShipHawk account. 

Before you get started with customizing documentation and labels, the first things to do are:

  • Determine the references that you want to be included in the label
  • Set up field mappings for any order data that you want to be visible on the label
  • Contact your account manager to turn on the pallet/carton label feature
  • Review the template gallery and select one that you want to customize

You will have full control over these label elements with advanced customization:

  • Width
  • Height
  • Position
  • Justification
  • Title
  • Description
  • Border width
  • Fields
  • Font size and type
  • Text
  • Reference number
  • Barcodes

After the customizations are to your preference, you can add the labels to your ShipHawk account for shipping label automation. 

In addition to shipping labels, ShipHawk supports necessary documentation such as:

  • Order-level pick tickets
  • Bills of lading
  • Carton and pallet labels for GS1-128/UCC-128 trade partner compliance 
  • Paper and/or electronic commercial invoices for international shipping
