ASCTrac® Shipping Management System

ASCTrAX® testimonial ASC solutions

"Our choice to partner with ASC was the best thing that we ever did for our warehouse distribution center operation. Our labor productivity was dramatically improved and our inventory accuracy was near 100%. These two reasons alone paid for the system in only a few months. But, a real gain was our ability to provide a much better and improved service for our customers."

- Ed C., Distribution Manager, Kimberly Clark Medical Products

Integrated Shipping Management Modules

Your Challenge: When you require parcel shipping for your shipping operations, trying to integrate and automate all of your information with your carriers is a real challenge. If you have large volumes of shipments daily, this can be even more challenging.

ASC understands that maintaining control of transportation and shipping costs, tracking, equipment, manpower, and other resources within your distribution operation is essential to the survival of your business.

The Solution: To solve those challenges, ASC has created a complete shipping process for warehouse shipping operations. There are multiple modules and these were designed to solve the demanding challenges of shipping planning, rate shopping, advanced shipping needs, and load planning operations. They will support multi-carrier shipping with the ability to manifest packages and shipments faster and more accurately. The process also supports multiple manifesting stations - as well as multiple conveyor lines feeding into those stations. In addition, large volumes of packages and shipments can easily be accomplished with the ASC automated solutions.

 

Advanced Validation: These processes can also incorporate our Pack out Module for increased validation, container control, pharma-grade verification, ASN labeling, or special handling operations.

Advanced Shipping: In addition, ASCTrac® supports enterprise level deployments where you may have multi-sites with multi-station shipping lanes. It has won many industry awards for innovations and it is a leading "best-of-breed" solution.

Complete Shipping Solution: The ASCTrac® modular design allows it to support any size of organization (small, medium, or enterprise.) It is a complete solution that handles freight rating with multi-carrier rate shopping, LTL versus parcel shipment decisions, automated up-down service levels at manifest point, load scheduling, bills of lading, custom load documents by client, and provides "connected" load plans from the ASC Logistics Module.

Competitive Advantage: Our customers utilize ASCTrac® for their mission critical shipping operations for 100% perfect order shipments. With more than twenty-five (25) years of innovations and field-proven results, ASCTrac® is their competitive advantage.
