Because Allport Cargo Services conceive, develop and support our own operation systems we can integrate with customer systems, to automate functions and support paperless trading.
For one customer of high value computer product we control an inventory of over 100,000 unit per month at box level.
Each box is uniquely numbered and its progress is monitored at all points in the delivery chain. Information is supplied via EDI from twenty European manufacturing plants to our central systems in the UK. The customer receives automatic EDI updates on status level information for every delivery and proof of delivery. Shipment status information is also available to their customers on the Internet.
Allport Cargo Services receive and transmit in excess of thirty thousand EDI messages a day and support all main-stream messages standards.
