How Flexible Are Your Container Building Tools?
If you import consumer goods from overseas then container building is an important step along your supply chain. Apprise gives consumer goods companies lots of flexible options to manage container building tasks according to your unique preferences or business rules. And visibility throughout your entire supply chain means you can view critical data even when containers are on the water, in customs, or en route to the warehouse.
Some of our customer's favorite features within Apprise reside in our integrated importing module, where you'll find flexible tools to build shipments and containers by weight, volume or value. With Apprise, containers can include an unlimited number of purchase orders and suppliers so you get maximum efficiency and the greatest cost savings possible.
Tracking your shipments is easy too. Apprise helps you track shipments dynamically at any level, including by purchase order, container, shipment and vessel. Need to drop ship your orders? Apprise gives you direct ship/drop ship tools to help you meet customer requirements for the fastest delivery possible.
Once your container tasks are complete, Apprise can even help you ascertain your true landed costs. Integration throughout Apprise helps you allocate all your product-related costs including agency fees, shipping expenses, customs fees, duties, taxes, insurance and more. Then Apprise allocates these expenses by cost ratio, weight ratio, cube ratio and/or unit ratio – all according to your preferences or business rules. You can even allocate costs to specific warehouse locations.
