- About Us
By providing shipping personnel with access to accurate production information, displaying all stages of the production lifecycle, shipping can generate shipment plans with the right information. Whether your plant operates on a push or pull philosophy, Shipping Planning communicates your plans in real-time to every group in the plant. Your customers who use Amtech’s Customer Care Portal will also see this accurate data real-time.
Shipping personnel and other users outside the shipping office can easily view information, limited through specified criteria, to view detailed production and shipping data including when the order was produced, loaded, shipped, and what trailer it was on.
Shipping personnel can appropriately schedule trailers and drivers based on data delivered through the system. This provides real-time, electronic visibility into trailer and driver utilization improving overall cost management. Detailed shipping plans reflect optimized requirements for delivering goods on-time and at the least expense. Additionally, having trailers docked and ready when the product arrives in shipping saves both the labor and potential added waste of double handling.
The system provides for better trailer balancing by allowing the user to schedule and manage trailer shipments across multiple days and to easily make adjustments when the production schedule is changed. Information coming from the Amtech Corrugator and Converting Scheduling systems, is provided in real-time to Shipment Planning and any changes are immediately displayed. This allows a complete plant plan that is communicated to all employees in real-time.
The system will automatically update your trailer based on the days run in real-time. It considers "A to B" positions and provides instant feedback allowing your shipping department to look at "what-if" scenarios. This ensures the most effective trailer planning and melds the experience of the shipper with computer smarts.
Visual "pick list" displays provide up-to-date shipping and production information directly to the loaders. This allows for electronic communication of job duties to the fork truck drivers directly from the shipping plant.
From unit-level inventory inquiries to loading and shipping status to detailed order information, all information is tightly integrated and delivered in . real-time, not near-time, to the user. Shipping can view individual and unit-level production for any . given order along with release, specification, work center, and messaging information. Shipping Managers can also review and understand stats and trends regarding on-time deliveries and trailer utilization. Your front office can manage and monitor shipping status' and customers can view their order status through their Amtech Customer Care Portal. All of this information, in real-time, for accurate decision making and effective business management.
