FUN WITH FREIGHT TRACKING NUMBERS:
If you manage any freight shipping then you know that capturing and using LTL PRO's is an important detail that needs to be handled effectively. Pacejet gives you some options for capturing and using PRO's, including entry at the point of shipping or a more automated approach of allocating PRO's as shipments are processed. Full automation is seamless for users, since PRO's are electronically allocated to shipments, print on bill of lading documents, and are attached to shipment history with no manual steps. Fortunately for shipping administrators, the next Pacejet update (2015.4) offers some improved management tools that make it easier to setup carrier PRO's, manage new blocks, track available numbers, and more.
NEW LTL PRO SETUP TOOLS:
A new and simpler LTL Pro Setup page will be available in the Pacejet 2015.4 update, allowing administrators to create, monitor, and update PRO's in one spot. Administrators can setup PRO's by site/facility, enter sequence numbers, and control the generation of PRO number blocks based on carrier parameters. An easy status indicator shows if PRO's have not been setup, are available, or have been fully exhausted by shipment processing. With the existing PRO alert feature in Pacejet, administrators can also configure the system to notify users when new blocks of numbers will need to be configured soon.
