NetSuite Launches Ship Central to Help Organisations Improve Warehouse Operations


To help organisations further improve the efficiency of warehouse operations, Oracle NetSuite today unveiled NetSuite Ship Central. NetSuite Ship Central is a mobile application that helps organisations optimise operations, eliminate manual processes, and accelerate customer deliveries. The solution equips warehouse workers with packing and shipping capabilities on a mobile or kiosk device.

“Now, more than ever, warehouse operations are under pressure to increase output without additional resources to do so,” said Evan Goldberg, founder and EVP, Oracle NetSuite. “With NetSuite Ship Central, we are extending our capabilities to help customers further automate time-consuming warehouse operations to increase output and efficiencies. By making it easier to consolidate shipments, adjust shipping routes for cost efficiency, and customise workflows to meet business demands, Ship Central provides intelligence and insights to further optimise the fulfillment process, decreasing cost and increasing customer satisfaction.”

Together with NetSuite Warehouse Management System (WMS), Ship Central provides end-to-end capabilities for picking, packing, and shipping products. It eliminates unnecessary steps in the preparation and shipping process and helps organisations track packages faster, determine the best carrier based on delivery date or location type, print shipping labels, and create documentation. The mobile application helps warehouse management optimise fulfillment processes and minimise shipping costs and transit times.

With NetSuite Ship Central, organisations can:

  • Locate Shipments Easily:  Enable warehouse workers to quickly find shipments that need to go out by scanning a carton, pallet, or order – or by selecting from a list of shipments. This reduces the time spent locating orders and information.
  • Combine Multiple Shipments: Increase shipping efficiencies and lower costs by identifying products going to a single location based on common criteria including address, carrier, or shipping route, and packs it all in the same shipment.
  • Work Across Multiple Shipping Carriers: Identify products going to a single location based on common criteria including address, carrier or shipping route, then pack it all in the same shipment to boost efficiency and lower costs.
  • Print and Reprint Labels at Any Point: Remain flexible with the option to print labels, reprint damaged or missing labels, and change label information on packages at any point during shipment.
  • Track Packages in Real Time: Provide customers a more transparent experience by allowing them to track the precise location of products in real time via carrier tracking numbers.
  • Customise Ship Processes: Improve the efficiency of warehouse operations by giving teams the ability to modify workflows to support unique business requirements.

Together with NetSuite WMS, Ship Central optimises day-to-day warehouse operations across SKUs, processes, and locations. NetSuite WMS eliminates manual processes, enabling organisations to minimise handling costs, run warehouses more efficiently, and consistently meet customer expectations.
