Your Challenge: When you require parcel shipping for your shipping operations, trying to integrate and automate all of your information with your carriers is a real challenge. If you have large volumes of packages daily, this can be even more challenging.

The Solution: To solve those challenges, ASC has created a complete process for parcel shipping that will support multi-carrier shipping with the ability to manifest packages faster and more accurately. The process also supports multiple manifesting stations - as well as multiple conveyor lines feeding into those stations. In addition, large volumes of packages can easily be accomplished with ASC automated solutions.

The process can also incorporate our Pack out Module for increased validation, container control, pharma-grade verification, ASN labeling, or special handling operations.

In addition, ASCTrac® supports enterprise level deployments where you may have multi-sites with multi-station shipping lanes.
