Inbound Shipments: make sure your warehouse knows what's coming in...

Integrate your vendors shipping schedule into your warehouse 

Save Time Money and Warehouse Space!!

If you ask your vendors many offer the option to  send ASN  (advanced shipping notice )information in a standard EDI 856  Document. The MDS system will import this information and update the in transit table to give your purchase orders a new level of detail. Instead of wondering when items will arrive you will have details by line of each shipment that will be coming to your dock. 

Prior to the truck rolling up to your dock you can plan where the product will be put away or use our Put-away function to manage the receiving process. During  receiving  any operator can call up the In transit document and verify the products are received.  This saves time and reduces data entry errors. while at the same time offering the option to schedule your labor and warehouse space.
