A window to the world
In today’s internet-centric world, there is no reason not to have complete visibility and communications between all interested parties in transport operations. You should not only know where your shipments are at any time, you should also be able to interact with all parties to set appointments, overcome obstacles, and verify receipt.
A one-stop tool for all of your shipment visibility, communications and scheduling needs.
RedPrairie’s web-based communication portal connects shippers, suppliers, carriers, customers, stores and remote sites to provide both visibility and interaction between all participants. It facilitates actions for inbound and outbound shipments such as load tendering and response, status updates, appointment scheduling, track & trace, and delivery receipt.
For vendors and suppliers, the portal supports both inbound shipment routing requests for consignee-controlled freight, and advance ship notices on vendor-prepaid inbounds. It provides robust validation, location profiles, alerts and automated communications to and from inbound suppliers. Stores can use the portal for detailed visibility to inbound shipments, to initiate stock transfers between stores and to arrange stock return shipments. Customers are able to route and track their inbound shipments, schedule delivery appointments, and confirm receipt.
Perhaps most importantly, the portal gives you a window to your shipping world that allows you to react immediately when things don’t go as planned. That’s key to maintaining your performance and customer service levels, as well as in controlling costs.
