Chicago, May 20, 2003-Precision Software, Ltd., the leading provider of global trade and logistics management solutions today announced that Wesco Aircraft, one of the largest distributors of aerospace fasteners, bearings, fittings and installation toolings, will deploy Precision Software's TRA/X International Trade Logistics solution to streamline its global trade operations.
TRA/X will be deployed in the Valencia, California headquarter office to support offices in the U.S. and the U.K. Wesco Aircraft will utilize the TRA/X solution to generate global shipping documentation, consolidate cross-carrier shipments and manage freight costs. Currently shipping with several LTL and parcel carriers, Wesco were seeking a solution that would eliminate the need for multiple carrier terminals and provide a single-stop solution to consolidate and simplify all those shipment processes.
The TRA/X Parcel Manifesting module provides a solution that enables Wesco to maintain compliancy with all their carriers through the production of carrier-compliant labels, electronic manifests and reports. The freight rate shopping tool will enable Wesco to shop across multiple parcel and LTL carriers to find the most optimal rate for each shipment based on service level, shipment type and zone.
TRA/X will provide Wesco with a central repository of information to manage and estimate freight costs. Wesco will integrate TRA/X with their J.D. Edwards OneWorld ERP system to facilitate updates back into J.D.
