The ASCL International Supply Chain Award is given to a Company, Association or an Individual that may operate internationally and are able to demonstrate their capability, commitment and achievements to promote and improve the knowledge and acceptance of the importance of the supply chain.
Benefits to industry
By using the standards developed for the transport label, the following is possible:
- Improved first and last mile processes through the capture of essential information relating to the transport task from the barcode on the transport label (e.g. when the freight is handled and scanned before the electronic instructions have been received)
- Enhanced sortation through the capture of granular address information including street from the barcode on the transport label
- Visibility of transport task requirements even if the remote IT systems are unavailable for look-up
- Improved efficiency and interoperability across industry through a standard label across the entire supply chain
- All this leads to smoother processes and greater customer satisfaction
