Metro’s Supply-Chain Management Programme - Let us take the pressure.
Through our supply-chain management programme, often referred to as 3rd Party Logistics, we and our global network become an integral part of your business, taking full responsibility for your entire supply chain. This has proven to be invaluable for those multinational customers who require absolute freedom to concentrate on their core business.
Quality that is second to none.
We pride ourselves on our desire and ability to comprehend the sensitivity and specifics of your own contractual stipulations. Stringent internal quality programmes ensure optimum levels of service from our highly experienced and dedicated staff at all times. Haulage is monitored daily and our preferred supplier base, consisting of major carriers and suppliers, is management reviewed on a regular basis ensuring that service levels remain reliable, flexible and competitive.
Connectivity and Systems Integration
Metro has solid experience in connecting to various manufacturers systems, both SAP and proprietary. Our global network interacts seamlessly to one system via structured xml messaging.
Metro Visibility Tracking and eDocumentation.
MVT is perhaps the most exciting of our IT systems. It gives you, and other parties in your supply chain should you wish, full vision of your shipments via a protected website providing real time information on the progression of your consignments.
Online eDocumentation provides instant access to all of your commercial documentation including but not limited to Bills of lading, Commercial Invoices, Packing Lists and Dangerous Goods Notes. Negating the need for post and ensuring complete accuracy of information, this is one of our most popular value-added services.
MVT has the ability to offer our customers fully tailored Alerts. Giving them the opportunity to be presented with the real time information they require, not what the system dictates.
Combining the above with our extensive North American monitoring services, MVT offers visibility unparalleled in the market place.
Over a number of years these services have facilitated a dramatic improvement in efficiency and reduction in administration for our customers, particularly those willing to visit our facility as they experience first hand the huge improvements that can be established by the introduction of Metro’s services and embrace them fully.
