RedPrairie introduces a new release of its E2e supply chain execution solution suite. The enhanced solution provides new and upgraded capabilities for better flow of goods, tighter integration between warehouse and transportation management solutions, advanced recall and quality assurance capabilities and new parcel manifesting functionality.
The new release also offers enhanced functionality to manage diverse distribution environments. Planning and synchronization of the movement of goods is shared between RedPrairie Warehouse Management (WMS) and Transportation Management (TMS) applications. The TMS can plan the sequence in which distribution orders are fulfilled by the WMS based on the most economical shipment plan meeting customer service requirements. The store shipment schedule is used by TMS to optimize routes and ensure that customer delivery agreements are met. The RedPrairie Collaboration Portal is used by carriers and suppliers to coordinate appointment scheduling within the WMS and TMS.
