Managing inbound freight effectively requires tight coordination among vendors, carriers, and customers. In many cases, this means a lot of phone calls and e-mails back and forth between everyone involved. It's also a time-consuming process that often leads to miscommunication and confusion.
To make the handling of inbound freight more effective, RedPrairie Corp. has announced the availability of RedPrairie Routing POréal, a Web-based solution for coordinating inbound shipments and reverse logistics activities. The software enables personnel throughout the enterprise to manage transport delivery requests and coordinate dock scheduling with carriers.
Features of the new software solution include robust validation, location profiles, alerts, and automated communications to and from inbound suppliers. Customer or stock returns are easily managed as well. RedPrairie Routing POréal supports both inbound-shipment routing requests for consignee-controlled freight and advance ship notices on vendor-prepaid inbounds.
Because the solution allows vendors, carriers, and customers to collaborate via the Internet, visibility is increased and a greater control of freight moves results. The solution can be deployed as a stand-alone application or integrated with RedPrairie's warehouse management and transportation management solutions, as well as other third-party software.
RedPrairie Routing POréal enables accurate and timely management of third-party originated shipments. It has the ability to capture and validate inbound supplier and return shipment needs and allows users to manage multiple shipment releases against a single purchase order. It also provides data handling by weight, cube, pieces, pallets, freight class, and third-party locations. It additionally supports the intra-facility transfer of goods not for resale and returned merchandise. The solution also allows carriers to schedule appointments via the Web while providing enterprise-wide dock scheduling visibility.
