Ease Communications and Improve Packing and Shipping Accuracy with NGC’s EZ-Ship

September 20, 2016

One of the biggest dilemmas we hear about from customers is the need to communicate with factories overseas to make sure merchandise is packed and shipped correctly. NGC’s EZ-Ship is the best solution to this common problem and a necessity in today’s omnichannel world to ensure shipments make it from the factory to their destination. 

What is EZ-Ship?

EZ-Ship is a scan-pack solution and electronic data exchange that interfaces with NGC’s Retail Supply Chain Management solution and can handle standard EDI X12 retailer’s requirements. The software empowers manufacturers to introduce scan-packing and scan-loading to be compliant with purchase orders types such as: musical or mixed SKUs, solid SKUs or pre-pack orders. Therefore manufacturers are able to improve carton content and shipment accuracy to its distributions centers (DCs) and/or customers, and help reduce chargebacks and shipping errors that occur when merchandise is not delivered according to purchase order (PO) requirements.
