Warehousing Distribution Logistic Providers

As a logistics provider, you’re in the business of storing, managing and moving goods. At Integral Group, we’re in the business of storing, managing and moving data.
In addition to warehousing and distribution services, your customers expect you to connect to all their order sources including EDI trading partners, marketplaces like Amazon and shopping carts like Shopify. The costs associated with this technology can put your core logistics services at a cost disadvantage. A way to reduce those costs and increase margins on your logistics services is outsource order management in partnership with Integral Group.

Just as outsourcing order management creates efficiencies at the front end, integration offers additional efficiencies at the back end.

Our Bedrock: Integration service integrates warehouse orders, transportation orders and dozens of other documents with your WMS, TMS and shipping system. We code one integration point for each document type with your system which means you don’t pay extra every time a new customer comes along.
