Barrett offers wide-ranging domestic and international managed transportation solutions for over 100 customers in the Apparel & Footwear, Health & Beauty, Consumer Packaged Goods, Food/Confections and eCommerce industries.

In support of our Managed Transportation programs, we utilize the 3G TMS.  3G is a web-based, end-to-end solution that manages Barrett's entire shipping and transportation process.  3G allows Barrett to look across all shipments in our facilities - from single site, multiple sites, or even multiple companies - to then take advantage of consolidation, pooling, and dynamic cross-docking opportunities.

Those managed transportation services include:

  • Brokerage

  • Domestic and International Small Parcel Shipping

  • Less-Than-Truckload & Truckload

  • Intermodal Options

  • Dedicated Fleet

  • Yard Management

  • Retailer Must Arrive By Date (MABD) Programs

  • Supply Chain & Network Analysis Consulting

Barrett Distribution also utilizes the ProShip Multi-Carrier Parcel Shipping Software to ship domestic & international parcels via UPS, FedEx, DHL, and USPS.  ProShip is a certified solution for all domestic & international parcel carriers and offers real-time, transparent, 3rd party or Barrett carrier contract rate shopping and mode selection based upon a variety of customizable business rules.

ProShip is fully integrated with our Synapse WMS, and as such, the freight and parcel shipping process is a tightly controlled, predictable workflow.  There is no burden on the warehouse operator to manually type an address, order number, service level, etc.  All of this data is mapped from the customer order file to our WMS and then into ProShip to enhance the shipping process, speed order processing and eliminate risk of human data entry errors.
