In the courier business, optimizing speed and efficiency are critical. Every second counts. The Magaya Digital Freight Platform provides all the technology you need to streamline and optimize your courier and small package operations.
Whether you’re new to the courier business or you’ve been doing this for ages, you know that your customers are looking for the fastest service with full tracking and visibility (and at the lowest price possible, to boot).
The industry is highly competitive, with independent businesses working alongside large global courier corporations. You might call it a David vs. Goliath situation.
However, with the right technology, small- and medium-sized courier businesses are uniquely positioned to provide niche regional services that the larger companies simply cannot.
Courier services play a critical role in e-commerce fulfillment and other deliveries that usually consist of smaller, non-palletized shipments to businesses such as retail stores or to the end consumer. As e-commerce continues to rise in popularity, the “last mile” of delivery that you are responsible for has become more important than ever.
Magaya offers a full suite of solutions to optimize your small parcel, consolidation, and last mile operations and delight your customers.
Courier Software to Optimize Every Part of Your Business
Looking to increase your small package throughput? Want to give your customers better visibility? Need to put mobile solutions in your team’s hands?
Whether you need help modernizing and automating in the warehouse or on the road – or you want to set a strong technology foundation across the board, Magaya will work with you to deliver the best solution to meet your unique needs.
Magaya Supply Chain
Magaya Supply Chain includes a complete WMS with billing, receiving, reporting, put away, inventory management, picking, packing, shipping, and so much more. Developed for maximum flexibility, scalability, ease of use, and visibility, it works seamlessly with the Magaya Digital Freight Platform, meeting the needs of simple or highly complex operations.
You can optimize warehouse and distribution operations, track inventory, and manage the important aspects of the supply chain that happen both in the warehouse and on the road, all the way to the end customer’s doorstep.
Streamline workflows between warehousing and shipping, allowing cargo to be loaded directly to outbound shipments, saving time and increasing productivity. Map out arrival locations, facilitating efficient put-away and picking, with a directed operations sequence. You can also send tracking numbers and inventory updates to the online sales channel the moment you ship the order, delivering the fast fulfillment speeds and full visibility that your customers want.
Magaya Digital Freight Portal
Your customers want visibility into their shipments, from warehouse to final destination.
With 24/7 self-service access from your branded online portal, you’ll keep your customers informed without having to pick up a phone or send an email. Your customers can view their warehouse receipts, cargo releases, and more. You can even invoice them online and collect payments right from the Digital Freight Portal, making it easier than ever to get paid for your services.
They’ll appreciate the instant notifications with real-time tracking in the LiveTrack Mobile App by Magaya, plus the convenience of having all their key documents and photos in one place.
Dimensioner by Magaya
Dimensioner captures and saves dimensions, weight, and photos of cargo instantly – plus it syncs the data in real-time.
With two Dimensioner sizes available, Magaya has you covered whether you are measuring pallets or smaller parcels. Dimensioner uses sophisticated software algorithms for fast and efficient measurement of freight, regardless of shape, size, or material.
Interfaces with any host system, scales, and barcode readers, so you can be up and running in no time. Prints labels after each scan, which can be customized to user specifications.
Flow WMS by Magaya
Flow WMS, the new generation of mobile warehouse management software, puts the power to dramatically increase warehouse productivity in the palm of your hand!
This new mobile app, designed for Android™ and iOS, gives you the freedom of a modern mobile warehouse management app with the real-time visibility and functionality you need for efficient and fast receiving and warehouse operations.
With complete control of your warehouse tasks, you can even trigger the Dimensioner from the app to obtain weights and measures.
Final Mile by Magaya
Final Mile by Magaya provides drivers with an efficient way to pick up and deliver packages and collect signatures, right from an app on their mobile phone.
The app uses the phone’s native maps for turn-by-turn navigation and best route options while on deliveries.
Customers are updated with pickup and delivery details in real-time, saving time on customer service calls, and delivery information is synced back to Magaya Supply Chain, keeping everyone informed.
Binder by Magaya
Binder saves you time and money with a mobile app that lets you use your phone or tablet to capture and instantly upload photos of your parcels, cargo, and more.
Easily find the transaction or item by manual search or scanning a barcode. Eliminating the need for cameras, cables, or memory cards, you can attach photos, barcode labels, documents, PDFs, checks, and more directly to your Magaya system in seconds.
Whether you’re processing a warehouse receipt or shipment, you can keep accurate records by attaching photos to the transaction with the Binder app, giving you and your customers full visibility.
Courier Software That Delivers Real Results
Most courier software is only used to manage package delivery, plan and optimize driver routes, track packages through to their final destination, and run business accounting functions. Magaya does all that – and so much more!
As a complete end-to-end solution, the Magaya Digital Freight Platform gives you the tools needed to streamline delivery operations and run your entire company, including accounting, tracking, and more!
To receive a high volume of small packages quickly, Magaya courier software gives you the ability to scan barcodes, take pictures, and get package dimensions. You can also attach all this data to the transaction.
The software also keeps important documentation organized, including loading guides and packing lists, cargo manifests, bills of lading, and invoices. If you work with imports, Magaya can create arrival notices for you. The software can even help you create warehouse receipts and cargo releases more efficiently than ever.
The Courier Connections by Magaya extension is used to print labels and ship items with UPS, FedEx, DHL, and United States Postal Service (USPS) directly from a cargo release or shipment using the rates you have established for each carrier.
Optimal Small Package Handling for Couriers
From package receiving to inspection, consolidation, and outbound shipping, Magaya has everything couriers need to maximize visibility, productivity, and profitability.
RECEIVE Streamline the reception process by recording the packages in the destination database as warehouse receipts with Magaya Supply Chain for optimal operations management, Binder for photos and barcode scanning, and Dimensioner for automated dimensioning.
CONSOLIDATE With all your information accurately in one place, use Magaya Supply Chain to create a consolidated shipment using the shipment wizard. Packages can be grouped by consignee, or one house per Warehouse Receipt can be created. The outgoing shipment includes a master and the houses.
DELIVER Finally, use the LiveTrack Mobile App by Magaya for full visibility all the way to the end recipient. You can even use the Courier Shipping Extension to print labels and ship items with UPS, FedEx, DHL, and United States Postal Service (USPS) directly from a Cargo Release.
