UTS Supply Chain Technology
Online banking gives you a whole new level of visibility and control over the movement of your money. Our online tools do the same thing for your supply chain. People throughout your company can monitor and manage all of your supply chain activity from one website.
Our tools empower your team by providing access to rates, shipment status information, documentation, and data. Everything is kept secure in one easy-to-search location.
We show you the marketplace for LTL shipments and highlight the ranked carrier. Your sales team can use this information to price quotes and plan fulfillment schedules. Your shipping team gets the information it needs to pick the best carrier and service level for each shipment.
For truckload shipments, we match the load with the best available resource. If the top-ranked carrier is unable to move your shipment, we continue with the next-best option until the shipment is covered. Our platform even incorporates carriers you are using now so you can manage them more efficiently. In this example, the client has its core carriers ranked first by price, followed by UTS carriers ranked by price. The top-ranked carrier rejected the load, so it was offered to and accepted by the second-ranked carrier.
UTS proactively traces your shipments and updates the status online. You can see all of your activity on one screen and, with one click, zoom in to the details of a particular shipment.
You can pull supply chain reports online. The Opportunity Analysis Report compares actual carrier choices with other options including the lowest-cost carrier and the carrier with the highest service ranking. Filtering this report for non-dispatched shipments shows you the suppliers that are not following your routing instructions and the impact on your shipping charges.
System Integration: A Strategic Opportunity for Supply Chain Savings
System integration is a strategic opportunity for savings. Often integration is seen only as a method of automating communication between companies. But with the right partner, it can be so much more, improving profitability and customer service while reducing interruptions.
UTS makes integration work for you. We have a background of successful integration projects. Make us your hub to real-time data from carriers, load-matching services such as DAT, and specialized resources such as SMC³.
