Supply Chain

The UPS Shipping Tool is an application program interface (API) that enables users to integrate UPS solutions into their own Web sites and enterprise applications. UPS Paperless Invoice enables users to integrate order processing, shipment preparation and commercial invoice data. It then transmits that data to customs offices across the globe electronically. UPS Returns allows users to return purchased items from 98 countries or territories around the globe. Business customers can receive the international return label and commercial invoice via e-mail, local post or from the UPS driver picking up the return package. UPS Returns can be accessed via UPS shipping systems like UPS WorldShip or UPS Internet Shipping and also can be integrated into a company's systems or Web site.

Production Scheduling

FlexNet Just In Sequence (JIS) from Apriso lets manufacturers integrate and control complex sequencing requirements generated from a myriad of business processes, such as those involved with the sourcing, fabrication, sub-assembly, production and shipping of materials. The sequence can be created in FlexNet, received directly from a customer broadcast, imported through an ERP or advanced planning & scheduling (APS) system, or traditional EDI. FlexNet JIS manages assembly, manufacturing and logistics to control the sequence of parts, error-proof operations and collect traceability and genealogy information, helping to support continuous improvement and regulatory initiatives.
