Some customizations we’ve made to cater to critical scenarios and use cases for logistics operators
- Streamlining Shipping Movements: With the native NetSuite functionality allowing for only a single shipping movement, logistics companies had difficulty tracking multiple movements to a destination. Our custom modifications now enable tracking of multiple shipping charges for various transportation modes, solving the challenge of complex and multi-route shipping.
- Inventory Replenishment: Managing inventory was a major issue for Logistic Operators, especially with the requirement to maintain a consistent supply level for their customers in the face of fluctuating demand. Our custom-built inventory replenishment system on NetSuite ensures warehouses and transport hubs are adequately stocked, confronting this challenge head-on. This ensures a consistent level of supply for customers, even in cases where demand is erratic or unpredictable.
