Application stack integration

Integrating our SCM environment with your own system means complete supply chain control with the tools and data sources you need to grow your business.

Take long-range planning and growth strategies to the next level.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) provides a single-window experience to manage your supply chain orders.

Through EDI and interconnected databases, you’ll have access to our powerful application stacks – Americold’s three main systems for warehouse management, labor management, and transportation management – and be able to coordinate complex activity processes efficiently and cost-effectively.  Read more about our core systems below.

i-3PL and interfacing provides real-time inventory and order orchestration

Consolidation of orders within shipments to decrease transit costs in last mile.

Warehouse management system (WMS)

Our WMS is our master system of record for all operational transactions within our facilities. We’ve incorporated RF and voice-picking technology, along with automated task interleaving to assign proximity, priority, and privilege in order to maximize the fulfillment of each journey into our cold rooms. The result? Shorter trips to complete put-aways and product retrieval tasks–and lower costs for you.

Labor management system (LMS)

Our LMS takes Associate activity from our WMS and time clock system and creates productivity reports based on engineered standards of expectancy metrics. We optimize our workforce using the insight gained on Associate productivity. An optimized workforce enables accurate labor forecasting and reduced overtime levels to maintain consistently high service levels during peak periods, cost effectively.

Transportation management system (TMS)

Our National Consolidation program is as reliable and cost effective as it is because of our powerful TMS integration. From load-planning to scheduling and route-mapping, our TMS provides you with the most comprehensive national delivery network available – full truckload service for less than truckload pricing.

Warehouse execution system (WES)

Automated equipment in our facilities, such as storage and retrieval systems and pallet moles, take instruction from our WMS through our WES. Since we’re not affiliated with any one provider, we’re able to evaluate all available systems and hardware in order to provide you with the most suitable solution available.

Our EDI enterprise dashboard gives you complete visibility and control of data transactions.
