SCATS© Transportation Management System can be seamlessly synchronized with any Supply Chain Procurement and Planning system to provide for a
worldwide comprehensive operational network to service all parties involved in logistics transactions.
SCATS© is a worldwide transportation managament system easily accessible by all logistics partners through the Internet. The operational database is maintained by the supply chain partners as a byproduct of operational events, such as order scheduling, shipment notification, shipment pick up, in transit movement, arrival at destination, and ultimate delivery. Operational events are reported as they occur. SCATS© maintains an in-transit database identifying shipments that are yet to be delivered as well as a historical database containing shipments that are delivered. The SCATS© database can be rapidly queried by a broad range of elements to extract the desired information.
An extensive reporting facility is available enabling the selection and printing of exception reports as well as management reports. Transit time analyses, activity by shipping facility, activity by transportation carrier, and many more combinations are possible. When suppliers participate in SCATS©, frequency cycle analyses can be extracted as well.
SCATS© is designed as a pro-active exception management system. SCATS© maintains a three priority level exception system. Scheduled events that are not reported by a particular party within a designated tolerance are extracted and reported to responsible parties through e-mail. Failure to resolve the exception within 24 hours results in reporting the exception to the second management level as well as the party responsible for action. Failure to resolve the problem within 48 hours is reported as a critical exception to the third management level as well as the two lower levels. Concurrently, the transportation company is also notified that an exception has been noted.
SCATS© operates as a global network, accessible to suppliers, shippers, transportation companies, brokers, warehouses, third party logistics companies. A transportation company can service all their customers through SCATS©, routing data to their own SCATS© database as well as each individual customer database. A supplier can receive orders from all their customers, each customer sending the purchase orders from their database into a common SCATS© database for the supplier. And of course a customer maintains a SCATS© database that is serviced by all the transportation companies and suppliers.
