A unique cargo management system that takes what was once manual and time consuming, and automates it.
Flight data, tracking, payment, discrepancies and more are available online to everyone in the cargo handling chain. Every stage of the cargo lifecycle is managed through a proprietary system that consists of three key elements:
1. ePic Messaging Engine
Designed specifically for CAS, this powerful tool transmits incoming airline flight data via IATA messaging to the ePic Customer Service Portal and the ePic Mobile Warehouse Management System.
2. ePic Customer Service Portal
Released in October 2010, this never-before-seen web-based hub enables forwarders and brokers to manage, track and reconcile their shipments online, saving countless phone calls and hours that can now be spent elsewhere.
The portal provides:
- Online payment options
- Cargo tracking at every stage of the process
- Printable carrier certificates
- Robust accounting and settlement reports
- User account management features
The portal is already being utilized by hundreds of forwarders, brokers and trucking companies across the U.S.
3. ePic Mobile Warehouse Management System
The ePic Mobile Warehouse Management System uses the latest mobile technology to bring the power and functionality of the Engine and Portal to the front lines – the warehouse floor.
The System uses an Apple iPad, mounted directly to the forklifts, to run the in-house cargo warehouse operating system. Now cargo and data are connected, optimizing the process between the documentation department and the warehouse.
For the first time in the industry, these tablets are being used to electronically update cargo handling information at the warehouse level and make it instantly available to every party in the logistic chain.
From incoming flight data to ULD breakdown and acceptance, each stakeholder gains full visibility into the complete lifecycle of the shipment, all in real time.
