What is an LFS ISS?

An LFS ISS is a special system that is used in logistics by logistics companies and freight forwarders. This International Shipping System supports the handling of goods shipments.

The LFS ISS supports many different logistics processes. These include, for example:

  • Validation of addresses
  • Routing of shipments
  • Creating and printing shipping labels
  • Completion of the transit procedure

As soon as an LFS ISS is connected to the existing warehouse management system, it can already be used. If a new order is accepted, the ISS receives all the necessary information from the higher-level management system.

It creates an individual routing code based on the sender and recipient addresses. If the customer has booked an additional service, such as a delivery guarantee, this is also encrypted in the code created.

What advantages does the LFS ISS offer?

An LFS ISS offers many advantages for the user. It can be used to reduce ongoing operating costs by optimizing work processes. In addition, numerous forwarding and CEP service providers can be selected directly via the system to carry out the transportation.
