Today's supply train runs off information, and technology is driving the speed and accuracy of this data. In support of our Managed Transportation programs, Barrett Distribution Centers utilizes 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.
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.
As experts in supply chain management, we recognize the importance of managing your inventory from end-to-end. To help you manage your supply chain, we have developed this resource which outlines the challenges and solutions for transportation management.
