TouchPath introduces new third party logistics solution
Supply chain solutions provider TouchPath has introduced new multilingual and user-defined third party logistics (3PL) solution, in a bid to provide better services for its customers.
The new Touch3PL solution is available in on-premise, hosted cloud and pay-as-you-go versions, designed to integrate with various carriers and e-commerce platforms.
Touch3PL, which will use desktop PCs and handheld radio terminals, also offers its core functions in the form of apps to avoid mobile terminal costs by running warehouse processes on IOS mobile phones and tablets.
It can be incorporated with carriers such as UPS and TNT, as well as e-commerce platforms such as eBay, Amazon and Magento. It will enable customer orders to be fed directly into a 3PL warehousing environment.
The new solution picking options range from simple pick and pack for smaller orders or pick to pallet for bulk orders through wave picking.
It enables rapid and accurate customer billing, in addition to supporting different charge rates by customer, warehouse, item and process as required with accessible enquiry screen reporting.
The solution also features bill of materials (BOM) maintenance to support kitting, relabelling and component (re)assembly/
According to the company, the number of Touch3PL software licences can be increased and decreased in line with changing seasonal demands.
TouchPath International CEO David Myers said: “3PL is one of the fastest-growing supply chain market segments, but with historically slow-moving technology.
“As a result it has lacked a truly modern warehouse management system with the flexibility and affordability that its agile companies need. Touch3PL is our response.”
