The Benefits of PO Management and Supply Chain Software in Logistics

Digitalization has become increasingly important in today’s logistics services.

Logistics companies, such as MTS Logistics, are launching software to help track shipments and stay on top of the supply chain. This is necessary to compete in the new world of shipping in the digital era. In this article, we will look at the benefits of a well-rounded and professional software solution, like the one provided by MTS Logistics.

With MTS Logistics’s PO Management software, you can easily track your shipments step by step, starting from when they leave the factory. You can do this in real-time using your mobile phone, tablet, as well as on the web. This allows you to know exactly when your cargo will reach you. Our software, for example, can either be used for MTS freight forwarding services or by clients that use only want to utilize the PO Management platform and use other companies to move their freight.

The key benefits of a digitized PO Management system include the following:

  • Managing all your shipments on a single platform.
  • Access to the most suitable pricing and sailing details for the shipment options offered.
  • Online tracking of the entire process from factory start to delivery to your address.
  • Online access to detailed cargo information and shipment documents.
  • Ability to generate data on loading details for any desired date range with extensive reporting options.
  • Access to a full support team via the platform (such as in the case of MTS Logistics’s software).

So far, thousands of shipments have been booked through MTS PO Management, and more are being managed on the system by our satisfied users. You can easily control your shipments on the system in three ways:

  • Manual Entry
  • Uploading Excel files through CSV
  • Using EDI Connections

Collaboration is the key to success in the digital shipping era.

The software platform is designed interactively to facilitate collaboration among multiple parties, allowing shippers, consignees, and forwarders to coordinate and manage the shipment stages together.

After the initial creation of a Purchase Order (PO), the system allows you to manage the most suitable sailing plans either through MTS rates or your own carrier contracts. During the booking stage, you can view and, if necessary, request changes to cargo-ready dates, shipment details, sailing schedules with rates. Once your booking is confirmed, users will be notified of any changes or delays, and cargo ready dates, cutoff dates, and vessel departure dates will be visible on the platform.

On MTS Logistics’s PO Management software platform, for example, you will have the following key features available for all your orders:

  • Search by PO number, container number, and MBL (Master Bill of Lading) number
  • Automated email notifications
  • Live tracking
  • Access to electronic documents (e-docs)
  • Instant messaging
  • Order visibility for each container
  • Reporting based on preferred time schedules

Despite the benefits of digital software in logistics, traditional customer service is still the most important for the human touch.

In addition to the digital benefits provided by MTS Logistics’s PO Management software, our experienced team will continue to assist you at every stage, ensuring that your business runs smoothly. This support allows you to focus confidently on your own tasks, knowing that your operations are well taken care of. The software does not replace the human factor at all.

Even while traveling, you can easily track and manage the current status of your shipments through our mobile applications available on the Apple and Google Play App Stores. Your shipment journey with MTS Logistics can seamlessly integrate with our MTS Customs and MTS Trucking services, providing you with integrated solutions.
