Real-time order management can save you money
Lots of company offer shipment tracking these days. Whether we are purchasing goods or selling goods, we want to know where they are at all times. Maybe we’ve become an impatient society or maybe we just expect, that with easy access to technology nowadays, we should feel more in control of our purchases.
What lies beyond the offer of tracking shipments is sometimes less obvious. But, when used in the right way, it can save you money and inform your decision making to improve the supply and shipment of goods.
Here’s the top 3 ways real-time data through the myHillebrand app can save you money.
Identify unplanned costs early
On screen and push notifications via the myHillebrand app give you visibility of a shipments on-time status. For many reasons shipments can be delayed, resulting in unplanned for costs from last minute alternative planning. However, through real-time data notifications, you’re given the chance to act early, so you can avoid these costs and make alternative arrangements for your shipments.
Once your order has a planned collection date, the myhillebrand app indicates the temperature along your shipments planned journey. This gives you the opportunity to add a safeguarding measure to your shipment, before it undertakes its journey, by either adding an operated refrigerated container or a thermal insulation liner. This will enable you to avoid damages and subsequent loss of sale through the correct management of temperature control. Global shipping takes products through varying climates, sometimes beginning a journey in one season and arriving in another. The fluctuation in temperature and humidity can greatly deteriorate a product’s quality and packaging. Check out our VinLiner insulation liners and the implications of improper management.
Shipments can sometimes travel a long way and if what arrives is not what was ordered, it can have financial repercussions. As soon as your order is placed, myHillebrand will display all your order details including total packages, SKUs and the product codes you’ve provided. It also details every party with an involvement in the order, making it easy for you to identify any accidental order errors before collection is made, and contact the people involved to fix them.
