TMS, or transportation management system, is the best way to connect order management and facility operations. TMS allows us to optimize both loads and routes for maximized efficiency. It also permits users to make load changes directly and in real-time.
Using TMS means that Emcon, our carriers and your business can coordinate schedules and allocate resources appropriately. Changes are communicated immediately so that all parties can adjust schedules as necessary and be prepared for early or delayed shipments.
INSPECTIONSOur staff is constantly monitoring inventory. Inspections start from the moment a delivery arrives at our facility. Loads are checked for damage and spoilage issues upon receipt.
Product is routinely checked during storage for any issues regarding impending expiration dates or changes in storage conditions, particularly for those items requiring special storage needs.
FLEXIBLE SHIPPING PROGRAMSEmcon makes every effort to make our customers’ lives easier. That is why we offer options like drop shipping and pre-loading.
Drop shipments permit customers to take advantage of sales and big discounts from their suppliers without having to worry about storage space. They can place a large order knowing it can be dropped at our facility for unloading at a later time.
Pre-loading allows us to maximize our facilities’ staff time. By pre-loading your orders, you have the benefit of knowing your shipment is packed up and ready for pick up at any time. This minimizes late deliveries and we can accommodate carriers who show up ahead of schedule without missing a beat.
