Logistics

The benefits of PdMAIN's Logistics and Shipping modules is in improved customer service, reduced finished goods inventory, reduced shipping costs and increased production. Shipping and tracking movement of inventory towards shipments is the one of the last steps in the delivery cycle for manufacturing plants.

The PdMAIN application handles the logistics associated with material movement through the Material Planning modules. The shipment is considered to be either the incoming materials that will be warehoused or the outgoing materials that are sent to customer. PdMAIN addresses both processes using the same modules and calculates the logistics around the shipment. The Packing Orders modules are part of a specialized sub-system of PdMAIN for receiving, packaging and shipping 3rd party materials, items and components. Some PdMAIN customers handle shipping on an up to the minute degree of accuracy, especially for the automotive industries or Just In Time processors.
