The IT infrastructure at Americold is a standardized nationwide network capable
of full integration with your system. Our network can be easily integrated with
ERP systems such as SAP using EDI.
Because controlling materials through the warehouse is one of the most critical
links in the supply chain, Americold's integrated information system furnishes accurate
and efficient information to help us control inventory, keep labor costs in check,
efficiently utilize equipment, regulate power usage, and maximize space.
i-3PL advances one-stop logistics by centralizing information and simplifying communication,
resulting in opportunities for cost savings within the supply chain. The system
centralizes information on an interactive website that enables you to search, drill
down, and view data. You can gain complete information regarding orders, inventory,
and transportation status. Plus, you can search and analyze data across facilities,
which is critically important if you are managing product at multiple locations.
Everything from aging reports to stock status reports, to event driven notifications
are available on i-3PL.
