LogTrade Connect for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is a very competent add-on solution. It is developed from our extremely successful add-on for Microsoft Dynamics NAV that has been certified by Microsoft since NAV 2009. Years of development and added functionality has left our competitors behind regarding work flows and ease of use.
Our LogTrade Connect for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is activated from Microsoft AppSource and is available as a trial version if you are still not convinced and want to do a test drive first.
Initial setup is done with a wizard from the standard functionality “Assisted Setup”.
In “Assisted Setup” and “Delivery Setup” it is possible to define default values.
In “Address Setup” it is possible to define many different address sources for different scenarios, like return orders, specific customers, specific carriers etc.
It is possible to create consignments directly from the Sales Order page.
If you work with Inventory pick you can create your consignments from that view.
In the “Consignment” page it is possible to add all information, look at customs data, add services, extra text information etc.
Control Tower is a statistics platform where you can track shipments and carrier totals.
Booking, quoting and tracking of consignments with different carriers like Bring, DB Schenker, DHL, DSV Road, FedEx, PostNord, TNT, UPS and more.
Simplify the daily work for your warehouse workers with printing of package labels and waybills directly from Sales Order, Inventory Pick or any other warehouse workflow.
LogTrade Connect is a cloud solution with more than 3 000 customers and as many different carriers. The communication validates that the consignment is in line with the carrier agreement avoiding additional charges.
One of the main ideas with LogTrade Connect is to be able to use different carriers when you ship, depending on goods size, destinations, customers etc. You can have different agreements for different carriers, or your customer may want you to ship on their agreement. This normally means that you have to integrate several carriers in your ERP, or that you need to work manually on the their booking web sites. With LogTrade Connect you have one single integration point regardless of carrier.
With LogTrade Connect you can easily interact directly from all processes in Dynamics where you handle items; no needs to enter data twice. You can use additional carrier services such as advice, heat, cold, timed deliveries etc. If you deliver several orders in the same shipment you can consolidate them automatically to keep the freight cost down. With different settings it is also possible to automatically calculate correct freight price, create customs invoices and dangerous goods information calculated automatically based on the items shipped.
Labels are printed automatically and the electronic information to the carrier is also transferred automatically. The tracking number is saved on the shipped document to make it easy to track directly from Dynamics 365 Business Central.
For each country there is a carrier package with the most common carriers for that country with possibility to add more carriers to your specific license. Example of carriers that can be used in different countries are:
A generic carrier module is included that can be used for your own logistic services or carriers not natively supported by LogTrade. It is possible to use different generic formats for electronic communication with these carriers.
Version: Essential and Premium editions of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

You can’t compare a custom integration and a connector. A connector already has hundreds, if not thousands of hours of development and are often completely integrated into the application. A connector is also certified by LogTrade and by being certified they have all recommended functionality. If there is a connector to your application we recommend you to use it. But of course the benefit of a custom integration is that you can build it exactly as you want it in your application. To find more information about our API please go to api.logtrade.info.
