ShipmentAssurety is an appointment and Intelligent Mail container barcode (IMcb) management automation tool, with complete Full-Service transportation appointment and content support. ShipmentAssurety uses USPS® Facility Access and Shipping Tracking (FAST®) to improve drop shipment and origin entry appointment scheduling. This allows mailers to allocate appointment times more efficiently, as well as reduce dock times for drop shipments. The goal of the tool is to improve efficiency, remove labor costs, advance automation of data business processes and increase data Integrity for induction planning and reporting.
ShipmentAssurety can automate the production of appointments and contents, and automatically download and enable mail direction files. The system can be set to automatically analyze the mail direction downloads, and employ automated decision making when dealing with redirection issues.
ShipmentAssurety also allows mailers to manage the content of IMcb required for Full-Service FAST appointments, and to more efficiently schedule their shipments based on this data. Detailed IMcb information also allows the sharing of data between multiple interested organizations, such as mail owners and preparers, consolidators, and logistic companies.
Detailed information allows for the preparation of reports on no-show, arrival and closeout data. Additionally, it makes information about mail status easy to generate, and allows mailers to calculate the mails status and risk with other logistics partners appointments and take action based on this information. Closeout data from third party schedulers can also be accessed by mail owners.
