East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/08/2015 -- Pcdata USA reports Jim Alemany, Director, Logistics Execution Solutions at Descartes, recently wrote for 3PL News that from large to small, leading 3PLs are deriving benefits through the active reuse of data. Data is still manually entered multiple times across a number of internal, partner and client channels and into completely separate accounting systems. Given the sheer volume of shipping information and the complexities of things like duties, taxes and security, the cost of duplicate data entry is high regardless of business niche or geography. It affects receivables, drains productive time from employees across many departments, and unmistakably funnels resources away from business growth.
Leading 3PLs are bringing shipment planning, execution, import and export document generation and back-office accounting functions together on a single platform. The ability to facilitate the collection of shipment information from multiple parties and to leverage shipment-related data to populate accounting systems helps significantly to improve accuracy and increase efficiencies. It also helps to minimize costs and effectively bill without data re-entry. Beyond this, shipment information can also be repurposed to satisfy any number of customs and security-filing related submissions. With global regulations on the rise, this is of key importance to 3PLs which operate across different divisions, geographies and borders.
