Logistics and warehousing never stop — and every hour counts. So when you can save between 40 and 60 hours a week on administrative tasks while increasing your overall productivity, you’re really onto something great.

Last year, CartonCloud customers used online ordering integrations to automate over 6.29 million orders, saving them a combined 35 years of admin time.

That’s 35 years saved in just order automation alone. Imagine what you could do with CartonCloud’s powerful automation and workflows to streamline all your admin processes.

For 3PL warehouse business Liquex and many others, streamlining operations with CartonCloud has become their business model for success.

"We're saving between 40 and 60 hours a week on admin, but we're doing 30 to 50% more business." — Ryan Thomson, Operations Manager Liquex Logistics.

Simplify 3PL WMS order integrations, rates, and invoicing

3PL integrations allow you to automate data entry and workflows to scale and grow your business easily. See how this 3PL warehouse used CartonCloud integrations to expand to global markets.

CartonCloud simplifies 3PL warehouse management, from order to invoicing. With secure 3PL integrations from your WMS to your customer ordering platforms, using automated workflows to calculate complex rates, and integrating directly to accounting software to automatically generate invoices, ready to be sent.

Save time on admin and gain peace of mind, knowing your books are accurate and current.

How do 3PL accounting integrations work?

Whether you're a 3PL warehouse, 1PL, or freight forwarder, WMS accounting integrations simplify finance and accounting workflows — with automated data entry, automated rate calculation, invoicing, and data exchange between your systems for accuracy.

Software integrations can be one-way or two-way, determining how data is shared and updated between platforms. When designing your unique tech stack for your 3PL, you should consider the platforms you already use, what’s working well or needs to be kept and integrated with, and what can be replaced.

Accounting software is a common integration for 3PL warehousing and logistics companies; ensuring data from your WMS workflows can be accurately captured for automated charges and invoicing.  

Why integrating your accounting software and WMS will change your business for the better

One of the standout features our clients love is CartonCloud's seamless integrations and the time saved on administrative tasks.

In high-volume order warehouses, we can save, on average, 3 minutes per order using integrations for automated order entry. For warehouses handling 100 orders a day, that's a whopping 5 hours saved daily! Time that can be redirected towards more critical tasks, improving overall efficiency and customer satisfaction.
