Supercharging your supply chain can save millions of dollars in the long-run. What initiatives has your company taken to improve its supply chain, and reap customer benefits as a result?

Bestrane has also announced the release of several new horizontal solutions based upon Descartes Dock Appointment SchedulingTM (DAS)

  • DAS for Security
  • DAS for Chain of Responsibility
  • DAS for Inventory

Mr Sanders said “These solutions make use of the core appointment scheduling technology, but introduce several focus areas which help businesses control aspects of their operations which today are either poorly managed, or not managed at all. With recent legisative changes companies need to manage both operational effeciency and corporate risk. Our DAS solutions have proven to assist in both.”
