Transportation & shipping management system


Transportation and third-party logistics providers have become embedded in the new economy of the last decade. As a result, unprecedented industry growth and consolidation has driven 3PL providers to find even more efficient and effective processes for running the enterprise, while at the same time managing an explosion in the proliferation of services delivered to customers. In recent years, many businesses have been built that rely completely on 3PLs to manage a significant portion of their business processes. With this strategy, companies eliminate major infrastructure investment, gain access to world-class processes, improve their agility in reacting to a dynamic marketplace, share risks with a strategic partner, and reduce operating costs. To match these new market realities, 3PLs often provide services beyond the traditional – multi-modal transportation (air, land, and sea), warehouse management services, vendor-managed inventory, and labor services. Newer services include pick and pack, inspection, kitting, packaging, labeling, product returns and reverse distribution, packaging and re-packaging, salvage and scrap disposal, and even customer service and telemarketing. Ramco 3PL and Transportation solution is designed to address the expanding array of services offered by these companies. Based on Ramco VirtualWorks, Ramco 3PL and Transportation provides companies with the flexibility they need to rapidly respond to evolving corporate imperatives, regulatory changes, and market conditions. Rather than re-deploy enterprise systems as the company reacts to these changes, the underlying platform can leverage business process models to quickly compose new business assets for true “change on demand.” Ramco 3PL and Transportation is comprised of: Inbound Logistics Outbound Logistics Warehouse Management Vehicle Management Inventory Human Capital Management Financials
