ShipTalk is an electronic
link to third-party carriers to provide real-time access to delivery status and
to access online tracking and tracing. This real-time, end-to-end visibility gives
up-to-the-minute order status, minimizes late deliveries and, if necessary, allows
for efficient exception management.
For customers who require a simple way of sending advance shipment notification to anyone in the supply chain prior to delivery, Varsity now offers ShipTalk-Alerts. ShipTalk-Alerts is a pro-active approach for notifying any supply chain partners via e-mail of specific shipment details, at anytime in the shipment process. ShipTalk-Alerts provides the alert recipient visibility to shipment information, such as carrier, tracking numbers and order details, in one convenient format. It is also an easy way to comply with the informational requirements of consignee routing guides and a quick, economical alternative to EDI or other communication protocols.
