Schneider Logistics Inc. today launched release 7.0 of its proprietary SUMIT suite of supply chain execution software. The enhancements provide customers with additional functionality and performance to support yard management, cross-dock execution and expanded international business requirements, the Green Bay, WI-based company said.
"We believe that the ideal solution to a customer's supply chain execution is a combination of people, processes and technology," said president Rodger Mullen.
SUMIT enhancements for release 7.0 include functionality for commingling of customers' freight at a cross-dock; enhanced electronic connectivity, including the ability to accept an ASN; intermediate facility processing; part-level details; and a broadening of SUMIT's international capabilities to support unique terminologies and LTL carrier requirements in Europe.
A new yard management software functionality will allow for an electronic system-to-system interface to various yard management applications, supporting the transfer of ship notices and equipment arrival information in both ANSI x 12 and EDIFACT standards.
