CortexShip is a comprehensive set of extensible Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and Web Services that allows you to develop the next generation of shipping applications for any shipping carrier or postal authority in the world.
CortexShip is designed around Micronite's Universal Shipping Architecture, standardized data structures and core software components that provide the functionality common to any shipping operation. With CortexShip, it is easy to implement carrier-specific rate charts, barcodes, and labels whether you are a shipping consolidator in Rome, Italy or a systems integrator in Rome, New York.
CortexShip is the foundation of the software building blocks Micronite is creating for the global shipping and logistics industry. It is built upon the CORTEX Framework, a scalable, extensible, and secure software platform for processing online transactions.
The Electronic Verification System, or eVS, is a paperless system offered by the United States Postal Service that allows shippers and consolidators to document and pay postage and fees by using electronic manifest files.
eVS requires the use of the Intelligent Mail package barcode (IMpb), part of USPS's new Intelligent Mail suite of barcodes for tracking shipments.
The implementation of CortexShip for eVS conforms to the specifications provided by USPS in Publication 205, Electronic Verification System (eVS) Business and Technical Guide, and Publication 199, Intelligent Mail Package Barcode (IMpb) Implementation Guide for Confirmation Services and Electronic Verification System (eVS) Mailers.
