With the Document Storage module you can add documents to your orders. For example, you can add signed transport documents, images, customs documents or an original order for your file management.

You can attach two documents to each destination in an order. When saving, you are able to specify whether a document should only be visible for internal use or may also be shared. For example, you can share a signed delivery note (as proof of delivery) by sending it to your customer by e-mail together with the delivery confirmation or invoice.
Do you use the Customer Portal? Then your customers are able to access the shared documentation directly!
Of course, internal documents will never be enclosed with e-mails and will never be visible in your Customer Portal.

    e.g. useful for proof of delivery / POD
  • Stored documents can be shared with customers and/or carriers.
    For example with a delivery confirmation, invoice or transport order.

Tip: There is scanning software available that you can use to directly save transport documents with the correct order. Delivery notes and CMR’ you create with EasyTrans contain a QR code with which a scanner can automatically recognize the order number.

Additional modules can be added to your subscription at any time. If you are interested in the Document Storage module, please contact us. The rates per module can be found at prices.

With the Online Payment module, your customers can pay transport service invoices online simply and quickly. As soon as an invoice has been paid, you receive an e-mail confirmation from Mollie and the invoice is automatically marked as paid in the EasyTrans invoice overview.

The module Multiple Currency allows you to create products (services) for which the price is automatically calculated and invoiced in the foreign currency of your choice. That saves a lot of time!

The module Multiple Company Names allows you to work with multiple company names from within your EasyTrans Package.
If you use more than one company name for your transport services, you can use this module to handle transport orders on behalf of a defined company name. For each customer you can set which company name is responsible for the logistic services. This will adapt the order processing and invoicing to the company name you specified. This means correspondence will be made on behalf of the selected company name for quotations, orders and invoices.

With the module Multiple Company Names you will have a customer database per company name and an invoice layout per company name will be made available in your EasyTrans package. However, it is important to know that the invoice numbering remains the same for all layouts. For separate invoicing (including invoice numbering) and planning we offer the module Extra Branches.

The most important functionalities of the module Multiple Company Names:

  • For each customer you can set which company name provides the logistic services
  • Process transport orders automatically with the correct company name
  • A separate layout for each company name for all correspondence
    (quotations, order confirmations, delivery confirmations, transport documents, etc.)
  • Each company name will have its own invoice layout

Additional modules can be added to your subscription at any time. If you are interested in the module Multiple Company Names, please contact us. The rates per module can be found at prices.

The module Extra Branches has been developed especially for transport companies with multiple branches. However, the functionalities also offer a solution for organizations that offer different transport services and would like to have a separate planning for these transport services.

The most important functionalities of the module Extra Branches:

  • Transport Management System (TMS) for each branch;
    The head office is able to give each additional office access to its own Transport Management System (TMS). The functioning of this TMS is largely the same as that of the head office. However, the head office retains control over fundamental functionalities to which a branch office does not have access.
  • Customer databases can be managed securely and clearly per branch within EasyTrans;
    The data of the customers of the extra branch(es) can be managed securely and clearly within EasyTrans, just like the customers of the head office.
  • Each branch has its own layout for correspondence for order and invoice processing;
    Per branch there is a layout available for all correspondence needed for order and invoice processing. This means that correspondence for quotations, orders and invoices can be sent on behalf of a specific branch. This also means that, for example, transports can be carried out by an additional branch, but the layout of the correspondence is set up as that of the main office. For each customer you can define which layout should be used.
  • Separate planning for branches ánd a centralised planning;
    In addition to an own planning environment for all extra branches, the head office gets a central planning. You can assign orders to a branch from this central planning. Such an order will appear in the order overview of the branch in question immediately. Of course, you can also automatically link customers and carriers to a branch office.
  • Separate invoicing, each branch has its own invoice numbering;
    A branch is able to run and manage its own invoicing. Each branch has its own invoice numbering. Would you prefer the invoicing to be done centrally from the main office? That is also possible! EasyTrans Software can adjust the settings of your module Extra Branches for this. Just let us know!
  • Insight in the turnover per branch;
    An extra branch has access to its own order and invoice data. A head office has access to the data of all (extra) branches. Therefore it is easy to see the turnover per branch!

Additional modules can be added to your subscription at any time. If you are interested in the module Extra Branches, please contact us. The rates per module can be found at prices.

The Route Planning & Optimisation module allows you to merge multiple orders, from different customers into one transport order, a composite route. You can then schedule a composite route to a driver or external carrier. Do you use the Purchase module? Then, of course, you can also view, share or invoice the purchase rates of a composite route!

A composite route remains connected to the original orders. Do you use the Carrier Portal including the Driver App? Then the driver only sees the composite route but the sign-off information is (also) sent back to the original orders. So your planners and customers will always be up to date on the status of the transport order. Moreover, this way the necessary information for a delivery confirmation and sales invoicing is always available with the original order!

In addition to combining and planning orders, you can also generate optimal routes of orders. The route optimisation takes the loading and unloading addresses into account, as well as the times at which you are expected to be there (ETA). Furthermore, you can also set a service time, the average time you need for a stop.

The most important features of the Route Planning & Optimisation module

  • Merging multiple orders into a single transport order
  • Creating separate pick-up and/or delivery routes when combining orders into one transport order
  • Creating optimal routes for (composite) orders
  • Up-to-date insight into route status and ETA and ATA per stop
  • Choice of vehicle profiles for car, van, truck or bike
  • Sign-off information available in original orders and composite routes with Drivers App*1
  • View, share or invoice purchase rates of composite routes*2
    1 Drivers App is part of the Premium Plus Package.
    2 These functions are part of the Purchase module.

Additional modules can be added to your subscription at any time. If you are interested in the module Route Planning & Optimisation, please contact us. The rates per module can be found at prices.

Is the connection you need not listed here? Please contact us for the possibilities.

EasyTrans Software offers various possibilities to connect external software with the Transport Management System (TMS) EasyTrans. As an example, EasyTrans Software works with a large number of partners to provide specific functionalities. Ready-made connections are available with accounting software, systems of logistics service providers and various other branch-specific software. However, there are so many software packages available that it is impossible to offer a turnkey solution for all of them. That is why we offer the module Connection with External Systems which gives access to the APIs and EDI of EasyTrans Software.

  • API’s EasyTrans Software
    To give you (or your client/carrier/other external party) the possibility to develop your own connection – between your TMS EasyTrans and another system – EasyTrans Software developed an API. The API of EasyTrans Software makes it possible to exchange information with systems of external parties in a structured and uniform manner. This allows you to connect your Transport Management System with third party systems, such as your customer’s system. The required documentation of the APIs – for the programming work – can be downloaded from our website: Documentation APIs.
    EasyTrans also supports APIs and links from third parties. The possibilities and requirements for such connections will always be discussed in advance so that we can offer you a perfectly fitting solution.
  • EDI EasyTrans Software
    EasyTrans Software has developed a standard EDI basis in order to be able to establish connections via EDI between the Transport Management System EasyTrans and an external system. From this (EDI) basic platform we will be able to help you develop a tailor-made connection. In consultation with you, we determine the requirements and possibilities of a connection between both systems. Of course, we will help you with finding the best solution. Based on this consultation, our developers will make an estimate of the time and costs involved. After which – in consultation with you, of course – the connection will be developed.

Examples of connections with external systems

By using the APIs and/or EDI of EasyTrans Software, a direct connection can be set-up between EasyTrans and other software. Examples of connections with external systems are:

  • Connection TMS with a webshop; For every item sold, a transport order is automatically sent to EasyTrans.
  • Registration form for new customers; New customers who register will automatically be created in EasyTrans.
  • Connection TMS carriers; Send/receive transport orders to/from carriers who use a different Transport Management System.
  • Connection TMS with software system customer; Do you have customers who book a lot of transport orders? You can offer your customers the possibility to make a direct connection between EasyTrans and your customer’s software package.
  • Connection with your own website
  • Connection with CRM package
