The Business Need
Our business needed to become more responsive and effective in managing our shipment process – we often found ourselves splitting shipments based on; what goods had completed production, product split delivery phases and the reality of the changing demands of our clients.
Our shipping departments’ planning and paperwork were becoming increasingly complex and the dispatch team were wasting time locating the right items for the right shipment, and then having to manage changing dispatch notes and shipping manifests when loading unpredictable numbers of pallets. As a business we also require full traceability from order, production and delivery, so we were looking for an agile solution to manage, track and audit our palleting and consignment processes.
