Tracking Inbound Transportation


Tracking inbound transportation comes with difficult operational and economical challenges and for that reason, it is not always of the highest priority in a company’s supply chain management. Regardless of the size of a company, it should devise a system to measure inbound shipments.


Don’t be fooled that “shipping is free” from your supplier. If you are not paying shipping and handling, then the costs are likely buried in the cost of the goods you are buying. While some suppliers increase shipping costs (without the receiver’s knowledge) to make a profit, most suppliers opt for bundling shipping prices into the receiver’s final quote. Ultimately, your supplier’s essential job is to create materials that benefit your business.


Millennium Logistics has mastered the ability to put into place strategies that will enhance the process of getting the product in to your facility on a predictable schedule while reducing the number of cross docks your inbound materials would traditionally go through with the use of Shipping Help Desk, which is the perfect tool to assist in your inbound vendor purchases. This system allows us to provide you with the best routing at the best cost, provides single source visibility with our cloud based tracking site and allows for immediate communication if an inbound shipment is not on schedule. Working with Millennium Logistics Management on inbound freight management, you will see an improvement in cost, predictability and productivity.


Participating with a third-party logistics provider like Millennium Logistics, can provide your company with more efficient receiving processes and documentation tools. Our technology and team of experts can help take the burden off your plate, allowing you to focus on your core competency. Contact us today to find out how we can assist you.
