Transportation and Logistic companies run on fuel and paper. Every shipment is accompanied by bill of lading, proof of deliveries, invoices, air waybills, air cargo manifests, freight bills and other required documentation. Transportation is among the most heavily regulated industries in the world and is loaded with paper work. Tracking details of customer shipments is the highest priority and much of it is done on paper such as packing slips, weigh bills, invoices, bills of lading all of which have to be filed and kept to prove goods were delivered.
Managing the supply chain is challenging, it starts with sales orders and ends with proof of delivery and receipt of payment. In between there are manufacturing processes, reports, employee reviews and expense management. All of these tasks involve a great amount of paperwork. Dealing with all of these paper documents is very demanding since they are moved around, written on, signed, and eventually need to be filed somewhere to be found later. Content management software can help manage all of this information by scanning all the paperwork into the repository and route it to the correct people thereby making the documents easy to find.
