swissconnect unites the largest network of professional courier companies and has always relied on central data management in the company's logistics software. From order receipt to shipping coordination and preparation of data for the invoicing, everything takes place in a software specially developed for the purpose. The customer can send his order quickly, autonomously and completely digitally to swissconnect via web form, customer login or API interface. In the event of an order by telephone, the necessary data is manually entered into the system by the swissconnect staff. The logistics software selects the fastest path between sender and recipient. On the one hand, the rail connections of 10 Swiss railway companies (SBB, BLS, RhB, etc.) are used in real time and, on the other, the availability of the 80 courier companies in the swissconnect network is checked. This means that the fastest and most ecological transport variants can be determined.
