Key Differences


Small Parcel Shipping

Companies focused on bulk shipping will benefit from printing batches of 50 or more shipping labels with 3PL Warehouse Manager. Labels are easily printed from pack stations via an API call within the WMS, so there is no need for a separate application. Mobile scanning and pack station modules with SmartScan and Small Parcel Suite further streamline the process.


Billing Automation

3PL Warehouse Manager’s SmartScan add-on allows for mobile charge capture with the ability to scan digital barcodes and instantly capture charges throughout receiving and fulfillment processes. Businesses can send invoices within minutes and calculate recurring charges for shipping, handling, and storage automatically. The use of segmented inventory billing and reporting captures all billable events within the warehouse. In addition, customer-specific rate setup is available, allowing more flexibility for the 3PL and their customers.


Reporting and Analytics

3PL Warehouse Manager helps 3PL warehouses stand out from the competition and achieve efficiency by providing 60 prepackaged report options for clients, including stock status, transactions, items, locations, and more. Customers can also request that the 3PL Central team build a custom report meeting their specifications.



3PL Central’s team of dedicated Implementation Managers are skilled in helping 3PLs with varying unique needs go live with 3PL Warehouse Manager. In addition, each account is assigned their own Customer Success Manager (CSM) for extra support, regardless of price tier.
