DHL has introduced the latest version of its EasyShip shipping software. According to the company, EasyShip Connect 8.0 allows customers to access shipping functions--including printing waybills, tracking shipments and shipment management reporting--to both U.S. and international destinations.

New features on EasyShip Connect include multi-piece air shipping on a single waybill, USB scales connectivity, enhanced Puerto Rico shipping services and additional documentation tools, DHL said. It also can now accept a pre-filled ITN for U.S. Dept. of Commerce Electronic Export Information (EEI) compliance.

“This new PC-based software responds to our small business customers’ need for convenience and speed in the shipping process,” said Charles Brewer, executive vp of commercial for DHL. “DHL is continually developing new and innovative ways to provide industry-leading service to our customers, and the EasyShip Connect solution makes shipping faster, easier, and more accessible to small businesspeople that want to ship from the convenience of their PC.”

DHL also offers EasyShip Professional, aimed at medium-volume shippers who prefer processing shipments without a constant internet connection; EasyShip Professional Plus, for medium-to-high volume customers; and EasyShip Enterprise, a server-based shipping software that supports multiple shipping stations, the company said.
