Our Innovations Are Your Solutions
Carter Logistics has continually kept an eye on the future to constantly redefine ways of managing your entire supply chain. We offer the solutions you need, when you need them, one innovation at a time. From the latest in communications and scheduling channels to strategically located, equipped, and staffed cross docks, to our continual research for improvement; each innovation from Carter Logistics is your customer’s newest solution.
The Milk Run
Our Shared Milk Run gives you the ability to reduce inventory, improve scheduling, decrease both shipping and labor costs, and manage returnable and disposable packaging materials. We help you manage your supply chain with discipline, organization, and control.
Our Lean Logistics innovations are your solutions to minimizing sitting inventory costs. Inventory on the move means income to be billed and more products to be ordered. Through Lean Logistics, you have a virtual fleet as an extension of your business, an around the clock staff to manage the details, and your own cross-docking enterprise to expertly handle your products.
Our technology innovations provide real time satellite tracking, proactive inventory control and management, and most importantly, 24 hour a day support from our devoted Carter Logistics team. We offer outstanding customer service to help you with any questions you might have.
Part-Level Detail Tracking
Our Track & Trace satellite tracking system allows you to monitor your shipments around the clock from our convenient web portal. Viewing your shipment down to the parts level is just one way we make sure you are in control of your logistics strategy.
Freight Verification System
One of our best and most exciting products combines radio frequency and barcode technology with a robust, three-tiered, internet-based architecture. Our proprietary freight verification-scanning software uniquely identifies every skid that passes through a cross-dock facility. This unique verification has led to increased visibility, quality, and reporting capabilities. Furthermore, due to the “in-house” nature of Carter’s software, there is much flexibility to pursue continuous improvement of individual customer reporting & tracking needs. Our Freight Verification System integrates seamlessly with many popular accounting/order-entry packages and shipping systems to provide the warehousing link in total supply chain solution. Combining these with our Transportation Management System, we can provide our clients web-based, real-time visibility of their inventory and part-level shipment tracking.
