Is It Shipping Today?
Posted Friday, January 20, 2012 by Peter Kelly
One of the common requests that we get from our distribution clients sounds something like, “We need to create a report that runs every night so when the owner arrives in the morning he or she can see what is
scheduled to ship that day.” In the distribution industry, what’s shipping each day is the single most critical piece of information that allows that owner to know where the business stands. Multiple warehouses, direct ships and disparate systems can make that seemingly simple request very complicated.
