SUPPLY CHAIN VISIBILITY
Recently we have completed our WMS integration with Toll. A lot of our customers use Toll for transporation and logistics of their goods in Australia. A customer request came through that they wanted to print one label for each carton rather than two. They were printing two labels because one was the EDI Label which The RIC Group WMS was printing and one was the Toll label for consignment purposes.
Customers generally print a consignment label for their goods whether it is eParcel for Australia POST or for Toll or for Star Track. However, the customer wanted The RIC Group to look at a solution to help save on paper and print one label which would satisfy the EDI requirements and also the requirements for Toll for the consignment. The RIC Group investigated and consulted with Toll and have now provided the customer with a solution that they wanted.
The customer now prints one label for each carton. This label complies with the EDI requirements for multiple Retailers and also complies for Toll for the tracking of the consignment number. Further integration allows the consignment number to print onto the label and then have this consignment number imported back into the ERP system.
This was a key criteria to have the consignment number back into the ERP so it was all in one system for internal staff to track and trace the shipment. This is because customers are now requiring greater visibility.
Transport and Logistics is a key area which we provide solutions. Customers are asking for end to end solution and at The RIC Group we provide this.
