The Logistics and Shipment module allows purchasers, forwarding agents and warehouses to enter delivery information in SERTICA. This module contributes to an efficient mid-point delivery and documentation of the entire process. It enables you to control the delivery of the right goods at the right time.
Shipping companies often store, consolidate and re-package goods from multiple purchase orders to ensure a smooth and quick delivery to the vessel once it is in port. Purchasers can manage the distribution and shipment themselves on behalf of the vessel, collecting line items from purchase orders and consolidating them into packages or carriers. These can be attached to a shipment with dimensions, weight and value registered to the shipment. This way, a shipment can include many line items from many purchase orders from many carriers.
At the final arrival destination, the shipment is received and the purchase process is completed. The entire shipment status and process information is available to the entire fleet and the purchaser. The result is transparent shipping data and access to the track and trace process.
