Century customers leverage VMS to flag POs at different points in the PO lifecycle. Once a PO / Item is flagged as HOT, this status will be visible to operations and documentation teams at origin. Our teams then move to execute the expedited orders per your SOP, whether by ocean or air. In recent years our customers have used VMS to flag items as HOT, HOLD, Pass/Fail, Test Approved, etc., which ensures clear lines of communication for all supply chain teams around the globe.
Our origin warehouse personnel ensure priority handling and stuffing of all hot orders in accordance with our customers instructions. Century’s Priority Marking module in VMS gives our customers the ability to assign a variety of status levels to a PO. These statuses include Hot, Backorder, Compliance and Alert. The system allows for each user to track the statuses of these vital orders to ensure priority handling through the supply chain.
