Shared Shipment Plan

A shared shipment plan allows customers and suppliers to better coordinate goods handover.

The lack of a shared shipment plan makes it difficult for stakeholders to efficiently plan ahead. This induces friction and extra costs, into the handover process, such as:

  • Wrong production prioritization
  • Sub-optimal storage allocation and organization
  • Inefficient goods preparation for picking, packing, cleaning, etc.
  • Insufficient crane and operator availability
  • Poor utilization and idle crane or truck capacity
  • Missing packing lists and customs documentation, etc.

Centralized Shipment Plan

Instead of relying on email and verbal agreements to coordinate outbound logistics, Prescience centralizes shipment planning to provide all stakeholders with a single source of truth.

Improve the Planning Process

Having a digital shipment plan enables customers to quickly implement last minute changes. Similarly, suppliers are able to critically assess the plan to identify loading capacity shortages.
