AdvancedBOL for SAP Logistics
Driving Intelligent Inbound and Outbound Processes
Eliminate paper, save money, drive down inefficiencies.
Digital Bill Of Lading
Gain the advantage of error-free paperless processes, better accountability across transportation networks, and immediate access to documentation whenever you need it.
Simplify Shipping Logistics and Improve Accuracy
Empower dock employees to capture pertinent data right at the dock instead of jotting it down and handing it off to data entry clerk. Use the digital bill of lading to record trailer numbers, seal numbers, carrier names, and other data that helps to simplify shipping logistics, improve efficiencies, and reduce shipping errors.
Get On-Demand Bill of Lading at the Dock
Because they’re generated as trucks are loaded, digitized bill of ladings always include updated information. Dock employees can generate a bill of lading, incorporate it into a PDF file for printing, and then use signature capture generate a signed bill of lading. Easily prove truck disembarkation times and loading statuses, and then store those large files affordably in the cloud for later use.
Capture Load documentation, Photo Validation
AdvancedBOL lets you capture load photos to reduce chargebacks based on load quality. Show customers that products were loaded, stacked, and handled properly, and use that proof to shift the responsibility to the carrier or intermediary.
Capture Driver Signatures
Using digital signature capture, the platform instantly generates a signed bill of lading and saves it electronically for simple retrieval and review at a later date. Enter driver names, pro numbers, and trailer numbers directly into the system while the truck is being loaded to save time and reduce errors.
Access and Update Shipment Information in Real-Time
Get consistent, accurate data while reducing transportation-related guesswork, which so often leads to poor decision-making entirely based on outdated information. Up-to-date and viewable the moment it’s available, the digital bill of lading incorporates real-time data and helps cut costs, improve productivity, and reduce errors in the supply chain.
Get On-Demand Bill of Lading at the Dock
Because they’re generated as trucks are loaded, digitized bill of ladings always include updated information while enabling headquarters to flag, stop, and disallow orders on the fly. Use it to prove truck disembarkation times and loading statuses, and then store those large files affordably in the cloud for later use.
Prove Load Validation and Store External Documents
Our customers asked for it, and we delivered. AdvancedBOL lets you capture load photos to reduce chargebacks to load quality on receipt. Show customers that products were loaded, stacked, and handled properly, and use that proof to shift the responsibility to the carrier or intermediary.
Utilize Standard or Custom Bill of Lading Formats
Using standard-designed templates saves money in a world where bill of lading template design can cost upwards of $10,000. Already using an established bill of lading format? No problem. With slight modifications, AdvancedBOL supports all templates. No corporate form changes or legal approvals necessary.
Capture carriers’ or customers’ paper bills of lading
When a carrier hands over a paper document, it can be scanned, converted into a PDF (using optical character recognition), and then fed directly into your ERP. Instantly generate a signed bill of lading and save it electronically for easy retrieval.

Save Labor and Reduce Shipment Data Errors
Save labor and reduce errors by entering driver names, pro numbers, and trailer numbers directly into the system while the truck is being loaded. Ensure complete data records by setting rules that require users to enter certain values before a bill of lading can be generated.
What our customers say
“Five minutes after the truck leaves, the head office has a copy of the signed bill of lading. This saves a lot of paper handling.”
“Until now, we kept paper copies in the shipping office. I do not think we could have found a copy of a bill of lading if we needed it. Having it all in SAP makes it easier to access and saves us time and money.”
