Transportation Management Systems (TMS) is the software we use to monitor shipments and communicate with carriers. The TMS also allows us to make changes to shipment schedules that are immediately related to the carriers. This system means we can work more efficiently and can accommodate the needs of our customers with minimal disruption to daily operations.
Scheduling is a breeze with TMS. Not only can we schedule loads with ease, but also when a customer requests a change to a delivery or pick up schedule, it can be made with relative ease. We can quickly see which loads will be delayed and which ones may be arriving early. It’s a great help with our facilities management because we can quickly adjust employee schedules to allow for very busy days or light days.
All deliveries are inspected by our facilities’ staff for both accuracy and product damage during transit. Any problems with the load are communicated back to the customer so the appropriate action can be taken.
Inventory levels are monitored both via computer and visual inspection by our staff. The conditions of our special storage areas are also remotely monitored and product is physically checked for as well. Any issues with inventory levels or potential spoilage issues are reported back to our management team for resolution.
Flexible Shipping Programs
We want to ensure that our customers have the flexibility they need to be successful in their own fields. By allowing for drop shipments, we ensure they do not miss out on huge vendor discounts or bulk pricing. Our pre-load option means that we can load up outgoing deliveries in advance during slow periods so the order is ready to go when needed.
For those customers who purchase in extremely large quantities and do a lot of shipping, we offer Freight Brokerage services. We can negotiate special rates with our carriers to save those customers even more money.
No one in the industry can come close to our incredibly low shipping rates. We work with a variety of carriers and offer a wide array of shipping methods so we can accommodate every type of budget.
