Amazon EC2 is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. Amazon EC2 abstracts away the details of how, where and when the work gets done, and also allows you to pay only for the capacity that you actually use.
Shipwire is one of the leading providers of shipping and logistics solutions for e-commerce retailers and manufacturers. Shipwire integrates with Amazon EC2 to add shipping functionality to your website. With Shipwire, you can fulfill orders from any location, not just your own warehouse.
The following diagram shows how Amazon EC2 and Shipwire integrate with each other:
Let us see how this integration works by looking at each of these steps in detail.
First of all, when a customer places an order on your website, your application receives the order information from the customer. The application then sends a message to Shipwire's API servers (using HTTP or SOAP. with all the relevant order details like total quantity, item_id, customer information etc. API servers then check if the order can be shipped using Amazon EC2 services or not. If the item being ordered is not available in Amazon's inventory, API servers will send a message to your application with the details of items that are available in Amazon's inventory. At this point, your application will again send a message to API servers with another request asking for an estimate for how many units of each available item will fit into each courier box available. If you choose to ship through Amazon EC2, you need to create an account on Amazon's website to access their APIs. Once you receive an estimate from API servers for each item, your application can decide whether to ship through Amazon or through your own third party logistics partner. Once you have made up your mind about shipping partner, your application will send another message to API servers telling them about your preference and API servers will pass the order information to Amazon's fulfillment system. This way, your client application works independently of Amazon's fulfillment system. Therefore, if your application decides not to ship using Amazon's fulfillment system, it doesn't really matter because your application is still sending the order information to API servers who will hold onto it till they receive a confirmation from your application that they should send it to your third party logistics partner. Once the fulfillment request has been sent to Amazon's fulfillment system, they will start packing the items and ship them to customers address as per details given by the customer while placing the order with you. Once all the items have been packed and shipped, Amazon will send an email confirmation to API servers and API servers will notify your application about the shipment status of each item in the order. Now your application can fulfill its part of the bargain by sending an email message to customers with shipment details for each item in the order. Customers can track their shipment progress online by logging into their Amazon account and going to "Your Account" page → "Manage Your Content and Devices" page → "Amazon EC2" page → click on "Your AMIs" link under "Your Cloud" section → select an AMI from the "My AMIs" section → click on "Launch Instance" button under "Instance State" section → select an instance type → click on "Launch" button under "Launch Instance" section → enter a name for an instance → click on "Launch" button under "Add Storage" section → select storage type for an instance → click on "Add Storage" button under "Add Tags" section → enter tags for an instance and click on "Apply Tags" button under "Review and Launch" section.
Let us now look at some benefits that you get when you integrate Amazon EC2 and Shipwire together.
You no longer have to worry about maintaining a fleet of trucks or hiring lots of people because all the shipping has been taken care of by Amazon. Also, you no longer have to worry about getting stuck with excess inventory because Amazon now has plenty of space in their warehouses and can store any extra inventory that you may have generated during peak sales times. You don't have to worry about employees losing valuable time sitting in traffic because all shipments are now handled by Amazon who have set up a network of distribution centers all over North America so that there is never more than one day's worth of travel time between two locations when handling a shipment from one side of North America to another side. You can also focus more on increasing sales because you no longer have to fret about managing inventory levels, keeping track of which items are selling well and which ones need more marketing effort put behind them, spending time planning new products launches etc., because everything is taken care of by Amazon who have already spent years making software that helps handle most of these things automatically.
