Supply Chain Visibility: Same Day/Next Day Shipping

E-Commerce is all the rage again (still?). Companies from Shopify, to Target, to Amazon are investing heavily in the coming years to expand their e-commerce logistics and fulfillment divisions. The goal is to increase their ability to meet demand for online purchasing with Same Day or Next Day shipping. Not only do today’s customers want access to anything and everything, but they want it now. 

For shippers, keeping up with this increase in demand requires top-of-the-line logistics software. Disparate silos of transportation data that are unable to communicate with each other, or update in real time, just won’t cut it anymore. For businesses still pushing paper invoices around, managing the speed and complex flow of a modern supply chain is next to impossible.  

Logistics Leaders: It’s time to upgrade. 

Zero Down’s best-in-class Transportation Spend Management System, FreightOptics, provides end-to-end supply chain visibility across all modes. Our advanced logistics platform easily incorporates digital and paper invoices from all carriers into a comprehensive control tower, giving users accurate, real-time shipping data. Once the data is integrated into our Transportation Spend Management System, users can browse customizable dashboards or run detailed reports to make sure they see exactly what they need to see. 

While many of the supply chain bottlenecks of the past few years are behind us, there are still plenty of hurdles to overcome when guaranteeing speedy delivery. It’s true that transportation capacity is on the rise this year, but that doesn’t mean any individual carrier will be able to meet your specific needs on any given day. The other advantage our best-in-class Transportation Spend Management System provides is that, by utilizing our centralized control tower for carrier booking, tracking, and invoicing, shippers can call upon a larger shipping portfolio. No one carrier can meet the demands of today’s customers, and failing to establish multiple carrier relationships not only sets your company up for delays, but losses as well. 

At Zero Down, we want to help you meet tomorrow head on. Reach out to us today for a Free Demo, and let’s get started shipping better.
