A new container management system from Softeon allows manufacturers, distributors and third-party logistics (3PL) service providers to gain complete visibility and control of the movement of their inbound containers and inventory. This Web-based tool works in conjunction with the yard management and warehouse management modules in Softeon's ELITE series of supply chain execution solutions to reduce logistics costs and improve inventory management. The software provides Web visibility of inbound containers at the port along with associated purchase orders and inventory by SKU. It then allows the containers to be tracked as they are staged at the terminal and transferred to intermediate facilities and then to the ultimate receiving site and finally, to the container return location. It also permits users to schedule movement of the containers, manage the containers' free time, and determine driver availability and multi-move driver charges. The software provides real-time integration with a 3PL billing module for the automatic generation of invoices.
