3PL WMS Activity-Based Billing

The Datex 3PL WMS can help you increase your profitability by enabling you to capture and bill for all the value-added services your operation provides.

Here is one way that Datex FootPrint 3PL WMS increases billing accuracy:

  • Scan & capture accessorial charges via RF handheld devices in real time
  • RF device transmits charges to the 3PL WMS
  • Invoices are posted automatically to the customer’s general ledger
  • The 3PL WMS automatically bills based on the respective contract
  • Customers can have multiple custom billing for each inventory
Inbound Handling

  • License Plate
    • Net Weight
    • Gross Weight
    • Quantity
  • Unit by packaging type
  • Volume using required unit of measure

  • Can do full month & split month billing
  • Additional storage billing strategies can be configured via workflow
Outbound Handling Strategy

Recurring Storage Strategy

Accessorial Charges Strategy
Using RF-enabled devices with our WMS ensures that billing will be updated in real time as the events are recorded via the desktop or mobile devices in the warehouse. One time accessorial charges can be manually added from the desktop or mobile devices as work is completed or can be added as extra charges if special circumstances dictate.

  • Accessorial charge types can be added at any time
