Purolator E-Ship® Certification Program
Shipping solutions developed by corporate customers based on Purolator’s specifications are designed to suit specific needs of the customers' business. The specifications describe the business rules, system requirements and processes necessary to successfully implement a certified Purolator shipping solution.
Potential benefits from using a Purolator certified shipping solution include:
The Purolator E-Ship Certification Program ensures that your chosen solution has met our standards for product selection, rating, labelling, manifesting and reporting. By certifying your proprietary system, you can be assured that it accurately represents our services.* Shipping solutions developed under the Purolator E-Ship Certification Program must remain compliant and re-certified as needed when Purolator introduces updates to the specifications.
For further information, please forward your inquiries to email@example.com
*Customers are responsible for all Purolator initiated updates to their system based on Purolator’s release of data, pricing, and other system files, as well as any updates to the specifications.
Purolator E-Ship Server API (ESS API) integrates all ESS shipping functionality into core business systems.
Leveraging the ESS API solution eliminates the need to design, build and support custom applications that enable shipping on your current platform.
To find out if you qualify for ESS API, please contact your Account Executive or 1 888 SHIP-123.
Purolator E-Ship EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) provides customers with access to data-rich business intelligence from invoices to shipment status in various formats.
Data is shared for the purpose of integrating shipment information into core business systems. Regularly scheduled, data exchange enables you to store and manage the information independently of Purolator. We also offer several communication options, which can make the exchange of electronic data viable for all customers.
The benefits of EDI include optimal cost efficiency, more accurate data, faster turnover times, and improved customer service.
