Ocean Freight Software

Ocean freight software for import and export operations, customer service and accounting

The Silver Bullet Ocean Freight Software modules for import and export contain deep functionality to address the varying business processes of different logistics companies engaged in sea freight. Our ocean freight software can of course facilitate creating a House Bill of Lading to get a shipment started. After creating a House Bill of Lading,  a user may wish to create an Import File, Consolidation File, Arrival Notice, Pickup and Delivery Order, or other transport order forms. All of these forms are available in our ocean freight software and each form can be customized. These forms can also be electronically submitted.

During a typical shipment process a user may need to add Payables to a File or, for example, add Receivables to an Arrival Notice or House. A user may then need to create an invoice with automatically applied customer/vendor rates and generate and submit export declarations. This process may vary by company, customer, commodity, region, or cargo. Silver Bullet can handle your unique business process. Our software is configurable and customizable to your operational procedures. Please schedule a demo to see how our software can automate your unique business process.

Software for Sea Freight

Ocean freight software can automate many complex tasks for forwarders, NVOCCs, importers and exporters. An efficient and comprehensive solution must integrate effectively with 3rd party trading systems, manage compliance, reduce data entry, work together seamlessly with accounting operations, provide excellent reporting, quoting, invoicing and billing, track shipments, manage consolidations and de-consolidations, and more. The operations software you choose for your ocean freight activities will have a significant influence on your business.

Ocean Freight Software: Integrated

Silver Bullet Technologies offers ocean freight software modules for import and export containing all of the above mentioned functionality and more. These modules integrate seamlessly with other Silver Bullet modules and most external software systems. For example, our sea freight modules are completely integrated with our warehouse module such that you can pick items from the warehouse module and bring the information into your Bills of Lading, Roadway Bills, or Airway Bills. All item, weight, volume, pack type and PO information is automatically populated on all the shipping documents and transport instructions.

In addition to these integrations Silver Bullet integrates effectively with GT-Nexus, INTTRA, SmartBorder, CustomsNow, Descartes and most other industry leading solutions to facilitate compliance, customs filing, and trading.

Ocean Freight Software: Accounting

All Silver Bullet Modules integrate directly with the Microsoft Dynamics Accounting Solutions or any Tier 1 ERP of your choice. These integrations empower companies to use best in class and robust accounting systems to support their business.

Ocean Freight Software: Intuitive User Interface

The user interface in our ocean freight software is strategically designed for the industry. For example, all information pertaining to Payables, Voyage, Container, Trucks, Shipment, PO, and cargo are displayed one one screen along with all of the shipment supply chain events, milestones, and statuses. Displaying all of this information on one screen eliminates the need to click through multiple screens to answer questions from customers or carriers.  This also empowers employees and agents to become experts over their areas of responsibility and accounts. Intuitive user interface and experience design throughout our software enhance the workflow of users, increase productivity, reduce error and save time.

Ocean Freight Software: Configurable and Customizable

A key difference with Silver Bullet Technologies is the excellent configurability and customizability of our software. We have designed our software framework and business model to support meeting the precise needs of our customers. We believe that your operations software should fit your business process, not the other way around. When companies are given this opportunity to differentiate themselves through efficiently automated business processes, they are able to perform significantly better, save costs and better serve their customers.
