Why is Shipment Administration Important?
There is more to shipping than just delivering bulk materials.
Sites manage logistics, ensuring there is material on site and that more will be there to meet demand.
When a shipment arrives, sites traditionally handle the administration associated with receiving material: providing site access and security, deterring fraud and completing paperwork manually for every shipment.
The challenges faced by industry become more apparent and critical the higher the volume of shipments a site moves. How much material is being delivered at any given time has – in the past – been difficult to quantify.
Paper tickets are processed by the accounting department which is a time-consuming task and offers no confirmation to the material and weights delivered. It’s also a process that often doesn’t happen in real time, meaning sites are assessing today’s needs with only historical data.
