Palletways, has unveiled a new web-based consignment entry system, which enables customers to pre-label their goods prior to collection. Cyberstation, has been developed by Neopost Logistics Systems to enhance consignment data entry and enable later order cut off points.
Cyberstation pre-populates locations where customers make regular deliveries, thereby saving additional time on re-entering information. The new technology also enables its users to create reports on all their consignment deliveries and thereby analyse freight moved via the Palletways network.
Ian Miller, principal of Frederick R. Miller, based in Surrey and a member of the Palletways network, said: “We have had an excellent response to the system from our customers who benefit from its added value reporting capability. This enables them to analyse all the consignments that they have put through us via the Palletways network. Above all it makes for a highly efficient supply chain which is mutually beneficial.”
Dave Keeling, IT implementation manager at Palletways, responsible for the introduction of Cyberstation to the Palletways network, said: “The system allows for controlled data input which enhances accuracy of consignment and delivery information entered by the customer and reduces downtime as a result of re-entering data. In addition by enabling the customer to pre-label its freight, we can stretch our order cut off points as it effectively speeds up the supply chain at the collection end.”
