How does a customer/supplier use ORiON Logistics portal?
If a customer wants to send their goods to a purchaser (whether from their own warehouse or from a warehouse of their logistics partner), they create an order to send goods. If they use EDI communication, they just simply send it from their information system (ERP).
If they do not use EDI, they fill out a corresponding form on a web portal which is available from anywhere and where they can also upload the data using Excel or export from their system. ORiON then checks accuracy and completeness of the order. If the goods are in their warehouse, they can divide them into palettes and the system will directly suggest logistics labels with unique SSCC codes, which they can simply print out, stick on the palettes and then send the goods.
The customer has an overview of the whole logistics process thanks to notifications option (e.g. that the goods have been dispatched/delivered). It is even possible to get overviews and inventory levels on the buyer's side.
How does a logistics services provider use ORiON Logistics portal?
The logistics provider receives an order to send goods from the customer through EDI communication. Thanks to EDI, the data is automatically loaded into the information system of the logistics provider. Manual rewriting from different types of documents and formats or tables is eliminated. The system also automatically checks differences in documents and thus facilitates solving of potential differences.
Receipt of goods from the customer can be several times faster thanks to easier loading of palette labels with SSCC codes using scanner. They already have all the necessary information in the system thanks to EDI and know what needs to be done with the goods.
Consequently, they create documents in their information system as usual. All the necessary details are already in the system thanks to EDI, therefore really only a few clicks are necessary. All the messages sent to the customer afterwards (invoices, advice notes) are again transmitted electronically.
