Keeping the pages turning at Rockpoint Logistics
For specialty publishers like universities, professional groups and trade organizations, the prospect of printing, stocking and shipping individual titles is inefficient if not outright impossible. However, their buyers, including schools, bookstores, and consumers themselves, still expect rapid fulfillment of orders. Bridging this gap is Rockpoint Logistics, which stocks and distributes more than 1 million books, DVDs and other material for hundreds of specialty publisher clients.
Faced with an aging parcel shipping system and limited carrier selections, RockPoint Logistics sought out a solution to completely revitalize their shipping and transportation management operations. Among other specifications, Rockpoint required the new system to integrate with their JDA Red Prairie WMS system and provide real time pricing and routing for all their carriers.
Rockpoint chose the Logistyx Technologies multi-carrier shipping software solution to automate their entire fulfillment process. Logistyx verifies package contents, instantly calculates the best carrier option, and helps streamline the daily execution of more than 8,000 parcel shipments.
