United Parcel Service has introduced Quantum View Manage, an application designed to let shippers monitor package movements more easily within their supply chains.
The application lets shippers view shipment information for multiple accounts without a tracking number. That information, UPS said, can be used to accelerate cash flow and manage inventory better.
Users can create customized views, with data elements most relevant to the user, of shipment history for outbound and third-party-billed shipments. For example, a finance department can use a confirmed delivery notice to automatically trigger invoices.
More than 600 UPS customers participated in a pilot for Quantum View Manage, and all have migrated to the offering since it was released last month.
Coming later this year are customs brokerage reports for international shipments and the ability to help resolve brokerage exceptions.
