Overview

Cargoson lets you send info between Directo and your carriers automatically — no code required.

Using a TMS is the first step to optimizing your transport and logistics. It allows you to save time, money and CO2 emissions by having all of your carriers on one dashboard.

If your company is using Directo, you can take it a step further: skip the manual steps and automate the shipping process.

What you can automate

Pre-shipment

  • Use the sales/purchase orders data in Directo to automatically create shipments in Cargoson
  • Display all available shipping options for a given order and let your users choose
  • Get a list of parcel lockers from different carriers
  • Communicate shipping needs between colleagues
  • Hand over the responsibility of comparing and choosing a transport option from third party users or purchase/sales managers to a logistician

Comparison

  • Calculate the transport price automatically from your price lists and receive it back to your Directo software
  • Request spot prices from your carriers
  • Find the estimated lead times for transport or request estimations from carriers
  • Find the estimated transport CO2 emissions for each transport option
  • Compare carriers and different transport options for each shipment in Cargoson, your business software or any other system your company is using
  • Place a transport order to a carrier of your choice, through their preferred channel: directly into their system or by automated mail (see the carriers integrated with Cargoson)
  • Set up predefined rules to automate transport booking and let the software choose the carrier automatically

Post-shipment

  • Generate tracking links and receive them back to Directo, as well as automatically update the shipment statuses
  • Get daily reports about delayed shipments in your email inbox

The shipment data is copied from the document, but can be edited.

Start using a transport management system with Directo

Your time is valuable

If you use multiple carriers, we believe that using one system to work with all of them is the most efficient use of your time and resources.

Skip the manual work

Your contacts, orders and shipment data already exists in Directo. Stop copying it to different carrier systems or sending it via email.

Instead, make use of it: integrate Directo with Cargoson and your data will be exchanged with all of your carriers automatically! This will also avoid human errors.

Pick and choose which carriers you like

The carriers you want to use is your decision, not our business.

Cargoson is not a middleman or a forwarder, but your transportation management software.

Our carrier database is extensive, but you can add missing carriers by simply contacting Cargoson support.

All your carriers connected to Directo

  • All your transport bookings could be placed the same way.
  • Simple API: One integration from your Directo ERP will cover all your present and future carrier integrations.
  • Requesting a new carrier integration, in case we haven't built it yet, is free for all customers.
  • Track all of your shipments on one dashboard.
  • Adding, removing or switching carriers is quick and easy.

Branded notifications

All transport-related notifications to your partners, customers and coworkers are branded and look the same, regardless of the carrier you're using.
