Freeway Commerce on a roll with Tesco ASN project

Guildford, United Kingdom — October 22, 2008  Tesco has implemented electronic ASNs (Advanced Shipping Notes) as part of its strategy to introduce greater visibility and efficiency into its supply chain and distribution operation.

 Freeway has solutions for suppliers to:

  • Receive EDI Orders from Tesco
  • Create ASN (Advanced Shipment Notification)
  • Print SSCC Bar-code Labels
  • Print Mandate and Manifest documents
  • Receive EPOD (Electronic Proof of Delivery) 

These solutions are available as either standalone or integrated modules within the Spectrum Product Range depending on your requirements.

Freeway has solutions for distributors and consolidators to:

  • Receive ASN information from suppliers
  • Create consolidated ASN by combining multiple suppliers’ pallets into loads
  • Receive EGIN (Electronic Goods In Note)

Freeway’s sales team has considerable experience with ASN implementation, having worked on many similar projects in the past with other retail organisations. We will be happy to advise you on your requirements, any cost implications and on an implementation path to keep you in line with Tesco’s timescales.
