Working in conjunction with the retailer’s existing systems, business logic and security rules, MetaPack Manager is truly integrated and flexible to ensure deliveries can be selected and allocated on a parcel-by-parcel basis.

Accessed via a standard user interface, through a web browser or an API, MetaPack Manager creates a universal format label through a single printer – removing the need for multiple printers and dedicated pack benches for different carriers and services.
Understanding delivery performance ensures transparency of operational performance, as well as guaranteeing customer satisfaction. MetaPack Manager translates over 25,000 status events across all carriers into 61 common events that are easily understood by consumers and customer service teams alike. This information is used to track parcel journeys for Customer Service, while customers are kept informed via SMS and Email notifications, all controlled and managed by the retailer.
MetaPack Manager supports international carrier lanes to and from over 200 countries, and for many trade lanes, up to 40 carrier options are available. This proven technology, used around the world, allows retailers to take their business into new markets quickly without the need for additional integration projects, changes to existing systems or infrastructure.
MetaPack Manager produces international customs documentation including commercial invoices, packing lists and forms CN22/CN23 in paper, label and electronic format. This ensures retailers avoid the additional cost and delays caused by incorrect documentation and makes sure the customer experience is maintained no matter where the parcel is being delivered.
Retailers can use direct injection through the MetaPack Platform. Parcels are handled by one carrier domestically, passed to a specialist carrier for transport overseas, and then handled by the best local carrier in the destination country, reducing costs and driving customer satisfaction.

Including home delivery, click & collect and pick-up & drop-off networks, MetaPack Manager enables retailers to differentiate through delivery by putting the delivery choice in the hands of the customer, while retaining complete control of delivery costs.
Completing the delivery lifecycle, MetaPack Returns integrates with the retailer’s website to enable customers to manage their returns via an online interface, print their own label and return their unwanted purchase via post, collection or drop-off locations – offering retailers a new way to drive customer loyalty via the returns experience, a real point of differentiation in global eCommerce.
