RedPrairie Corp. has included enhanced features for international shippers and third-party logistics (3PL) providers in the newest release of its transportation management system (TMS). Enhancements designed especially for international users include ocean-, rail-, and air-based multimodal transportation support, time-based transit service standards, and enhanced geocoding. These features accommodate users who transport freight by means other than roads, including barge and ferry travel over ocean.
The new release is especially sensitive to a host of complicating factors associated with international logistics, including time zone changes, support for single as well as multiple contract multimodal shipment planning, and extended European mapping and distance calculations. These features will enable intra-European movement optimization and more flexible options for conducting those movements.
The new capabilities for 3PLs include a consignment booking pOréal, easier and more precise client billing, and contract management. The new release also includes an expanded collaboration pOréal, which is a component that allows customers, shippers, carriers, vendors, and stores to share information and jointly manage shipments online.
