The Tracking module enables a direct connection with the web-service of the carrier for each dispatch. This module is directly connected to the Air and Road Dispatch Management Module. At the end of the module, the TLS system connects directly to the web-service of the carrier and sends the measurement, destination and lead time data to the web-service. It then instantly recovers the corresponding tracking number. It will thus be unnecessary to enter the data manually. If the number of dispatches with a carrier justifies it, the TLS system can manage the printer particular to the carrier. A carrier that does not have a web-service is electronically informed that it must pick up parcels/pallets by a manifest drawn up by the TLS system.
