Supply Chain Now Livestream
Modern warehouses need a seamless integration from order release, picking, packing, shipping, tracking, and audit to have a closed loop for your supply chain deliveries with all modes in one system. Without a real-time full-featured Warehouse Execution System (WES) integrated with a multi-modal TMS, shippers are wasting time, money, and opportunities to optimize both their customer experience and transportation deadlines. By automating warehouse and transportation execution into a unified operation, you’ll gain real-time visibility and automate the selection of parcel carrier and LTL shipment modes. We’ll discuss how a WES combined with a multi-modal TMS can drastically cut freight spend and the cost to fulfill order shipments.
Here are a four ways automation reduces freight spend:
- Real-time carton and case order dimensional weight visibility automate carrier cost selection across all modes of transportation?
- Manage by exception and let software logic do the daily shipping optimization activities
- Make transportation a profit center by automatically selecting the lowest holistic cost using rate shopping, auctions, and business rules
- Remove subjectivity in carrier selection to choose the most cost-effective solution by using automated business rules
