FedEx SupplyChain, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., has rolled out new and expanded visibility and control features as well as new stocking locations to support worldwide FedEx Critical Inventory Logistics customers.
FedEx has added more than 100 new stocking locations worldwide to the FedEx Critical Inventory Logistics network—with the largest network expansions taking place within India and Mexico.
Additionally the new FedEx Critical Inventory Logistics global event management solution establishes a plan and "milestones" for each critical order, which helps to keep the delivery on track and on time. For instance, as soon as an order is picked up, the pick-up scan data is instantly transmitted to the global command-and-control center to indicate that a milestone has been cleared. If a scan is scheduled but not cleared as planned, follow-up actions are triggered to proactively bring the order back on course.
In addition to event management, more customers will have access to trained staff members, who are on duty around-the-clock, through the FedEx Critical Inventory Logistics global command and control team.
The FedEx Critical Inventory Logistics technology enhancements also include added ways for customers to place orders. In addition to existing order placement methods—electronic data interchange (EDI), phone, and e-mail—customers now can place orders on the web by uploading a file or by using the FedEx Critical Inventory Logistics global customer web pOréal.
Offered by FedEx SupplyChain since 2006, FedEx Critical Inventory Logistics allows customers to centrally locate their most important inventory at stocking facilities throughout the world, including 24-hour locations.
