Shipping ManagementWhen the trucks arrive you need to be ready. And now, with food safety a top priority, you need to be able to track and account for products from the time they arrive at your receiving dock until your customer takes possession of them.
Your business is all about getting the right products on the right trucks with a minimum of motion and delay. Efficient shipping practices can have a huge impact on your reputation, the freshness of your product, and your bottom line. Famous Software Version 6 will revolutionize the way you ship.
Shipping ListsSkillfully organized shipping lists and real time queries are at the heart of the Famous Shipping module. Your shipping workers can generate customized shipping lists that take into consideration such factors as estimated arrival times, destinations, carriers, purchase order grouping, and other factors.
Track warehouse transfers. Optionally, schedule loading times and docks. Prioritize loads. If you have multiple warehouses you can see and manage individual warehouses or all of them together.
Check Product AvailabilityWhen preparing to pick items for an order it is easy to spot shortages and determine suitable substitution options following the rules that you have defined for the commodity and customer.
Load Priority ManagementFamous suggests a preliminary load priority, taking into consideration truck arrival times and warehouse locations. Quickly and automatically revise shipping lists and schedules by simply dragging and dropping order lines or by typing.
CHEP Pallet ReportingFamous provides fully integrated CHEP pallet reporting. You can also keep track of RPCs and similar reusable items.
Reserve TagsEnsure that customers receive the right products by directing your shipping staff to load exactly what's expected. Reserve inventory for sales orders or transfers.
Dock Management FeaturesMonitor and manage multiple trucks, multiple docks, multiple coolers, and multiple warehouses, all online, in real time! Give enterprise wide visibility to one of the most important areas of your operation.
Bar code Scanning and Shipping: Use fully integrated bar coded pallet tags to minimize typing errors, improve traceability, and assure accurate picking.
Bills of Lading: Automatically create Bills of Lading at checkout. Print on custom forms or on plain paper. Optionally capture drivers' signatures.
Driver Check-In and Check-Out: The driver check-in feature records time-and-date-stamped carrier information including drivers' names and carrier, and truck and trailer license numbers.
No Show Trucks: When a truck doesn't show up as planned it can create problems for you and your customers. The No Show Status feature in Famous Version 6 alerts you to Sales Orders that were scheduled to ship the prior day, but did not.
Canadian Confirmations: If you ship internationally you will appreciate the way Famous can help speed the preparation of the necessary paperwork, including the creation of Canadian Confirmations.
Pick Tickets: Pick Tickets can be generated to facilitate loading trucks. Special instructions, shipping information, and any additional loading remarks are included on the tickets. Whenever any relevant information changes on an order, Famous flags that order and cautions users to print revised pick tickets.
Loading Instructions and Shipping Charges: When loads require temperature recorders, CHEP pallets, air bags, top ice, and so on, these charges are entered on orders and appear on pick tickets.
