The Challenge:

Star Textil controls 100% of their value chain - from design, to production, to logistics, to sales. As part of managing a continued positive growth pattern, the customer was looking for a way to automate the consolidation of data for transborder shipments, minimize processing errors, and reduce transportation costs. They considered developing their own compliance engine for their primary carrier, but preferred to achieve all of their goals without the high cost of in-house technology development.

The Solution:

Star Textil reached out to UPS and ConnectShip | iShip for assistance, who evaluated the processing challenges and recommended ConnectShip | iShip Toolkit as just the right fit to consolidate transborder shipments in their highly-automated system.


“We look for talent, the best professionals, and we believe in new technologies."

The Results:

    ConnectShip | iShip Toolkit:
  • Automated label printing to improve efficiency
  • Enabled multi-package processing which helped consolidate shipments
  • Provided a ready-to-go solution without costly development
  • Easy access to new carrier features
  • Reduced data and billing errors due to built-in manifesting with automatic carrier uploads
  • The flexibility of adding additional carriers anytime with Toolkit’s component-based architecture.

“Connectship | iShip quickly provided us functionalities that, otherwise, we would have had to develop ourselves; Like the consolidation of packages that are processed over different days for one shipment. [Toolkit] allows us to think of future projects like the integration of different carriers using the same technology, with all the information coming from the same data source.” [Translated]
