3PL module

As a logistics service provider, you’re looking for a flexible and comprehensive WMS. A solution that supports, streamlines and optimises all your logistical and administrative processes. Locus WMS from Centric is supplemented by a 3PL module specifically for logistics service providers, with extra functionality to achieve a high level of service and efficient planning. With Locus WMS you can communicate better and ensure a clear distinction between your logistical tasks and your administrative processing.

The 3PL module offers functionality for:

  • Order management
  • EDI
  • Portal
  • Invoicing
  • Inventory management
  • Carrier selection
  • SLA administration  
  • Quotes

Locus WMS is a highly advanced WMS system. a proven solution that – in combination with the 3PL module – supports the logistics service provider throughout the entire process. From order entry to invoicing.

The module offers support in the field of: 

Order entry: customer orders can be entered three different ways: manually, with EDI or via a portal.

Order planning: order management lets you plan up to eighty percent of standard orders fully automatically.

Order picking: Locus WMS is controlled by the 3PL module and Locus in turn links the activities back to the 3PL module. This actions are tracked in inventory management. With EDI or via a portal, the customer is always kept informed of current stock levels.

Carrier selection: the SLA management function registers agreements with your clients and partners. Carrier selection is performed based on the agreements you have with your shipping and courier partners.

Sending shipping orders: shipping orders can be sent automatically to a courier or your shipping partner’s TMS (transport management system).

Invoicing: invoices are prepared and sent based on the activities performed and the rates set in the registered SLAs. The 3PL module also offers a quoting function for quote requests that have not yet been recorded in an SLA. The quote which is given can later be converted into an order. Shipping partners’ incoming invoices are checked against the anticipated costs as recorded in the registered SLAs and the orders which have been submitted.
