Information Needed for Accurate Shipment Scheduling

August 21, 2016 by InterChez in InterChez, Tips To Ship By

Your 3PL partner needs specific information in order to accurately schedule your shipment. Set yourself up for a successful delivery by providing the key information outlined below.

With so many different modes and service types to choose from, providing the complete details of your shipment will ensure that the best choice is made so your goods arrive on time and within budget. Failing to communicate all of these necessary details to your 3PL could cause your shipment to be more expensive or even arrive late. When scheduling a shipment, avoid costly and unnecessary complications to your supply chain by communicating the following specifications:

 

TTSB Location IconPickup and delivery locations (Contact name, address, phone number)

TTSB Delivery IconPickup and delivery requirements (Appointment time, delivery time, Pickup number if needed)

TTSB Equipment Type IconEquipment type requirements

TTSB Dimensions IconQuantity and dimensions of pieces

TTSB Weight IconTotal weight

TTSB Commodity IconThe commodity

By providing all of this information, you allow your 3PL partner to choose the best shipment type based on your unique needs. By requesting a specific service, or not proving the required details, or communicating inaccurate information, you may be eliminating more economical options to meet your needs.
