How to improve the management of your suppliers’ shipments

Managing supplier shipments can be particularly challenging when each supplier is responsible for managing their shipments independently. In these situations, it can be tedious and challenging for your business to maintain visibility and control over the shipments you need to receive. A lack of centralised coordination can lead to problems such as late deliveries, order errors or difficulties in resolving issues quickly and efficiently. Therefore, having a platform that allows you to centralise and manage all shipments from suppliers is essential to ensure efficiency and quality in your company’s logistics chain.

What do we mean by supplier shipment management?

Supplier shipment management refers to the process of monitoring and coordinating shipments made by your suppliers, ensuring that products arrive on time and in optimal condition. This involves keeping accurate track of shipments, managing the associated costs and ensuring effective communication with suppliers.

We understand how important efficient supplier shipment management is to your business. That’s why at LetMeShip we have a key tool that will revolutionise this task within your company.
