This application will be processing orders to a logistics company for drop-shipment to customers.
The orders will be received as XML files to be imported into a Microsoft SQL Database. This application will be printing packing lists and invoices with multiple formats based upon customer information contained within the order files. Once an order is shipped complete the data will be exported to an XML file for return to the store originating the order.
UPS WorldShip APIs may be required to transfer data between the shipping application and this drop-ship application. All picking/inventory/general logistics functions will be handled outside of this software - this is for sorting orders, printing invoices and returning shipping info only.
