DCL Logistics Launches A Complete Overhaul Of Their Customer Visibility Portal Creating A “Best-in-class” Solution For Their Clients

FREMONT, Calif. – July 5, 2017  DCL Logistics today announced the release of eFactory 10, their comprehensive portal access to all of a customer’s activities in DCL Logistics’ global warehouse network.

All eFactory 10 modules are now updated to fully support the Multi-Channel and Multi-Warehouse network for an optimum customer shipping and inventory solution.

For example, users are now able to schedule their own report distribution, obtain shipment estimates, log Advance Shipment Notifications (ASNs), edit or hold orders, customize reports to meet specific business needs, access invoices, and create Return Authorizations through ReturntrakTM.

“Users told us they wanted quick response, so superior performance was a major focus in this release. To meet our customers’ needs, we rebuilt eFactory 10 from the ground up using the latest technologies,” said Shahid Masood, Vice President of Technology for DCL. “As a result, not only is there a major speed and stability improvement, but also the extensible architecture provides us with a foundation to roll out future functionality quickly.”

“We are extremely excited about eFactory 10. It’s a significant breakthrough for platforms in the 3PL space,” said Dave Tu, President of DCL Logistics. “eFactory 10 has a more contemporary and intuitive interface, and is loaded with rich features and functionalities. The platform was specifically built to empower users to actively manage their operations throughout DCL’s global network by providing the many new user-controllable capabilities.”

DCL Logistics Announces Freight Forwarding Partnership with Flexport

FREMONT, Calif. – July 6, 2016  DCL Logistics (DCL) is now partnering with Flexport, a technology-based import/export freight forwarding company. The new alliance streamlines freight forwarding and customs brokerage and creates an end-to-end supply chain technology solution for DCL customers as well other operational advantages.

Flexport is one of the first freight-forwarding outfits to digitize international shipping, making it easy to move goods through customs and around the world. They provide companies with a single online dashboard to purchase and manage all the services required to ship products between any two places on the planet.

DCL and Flexport systems have already been integrated and DCL customers are reaping the benefits of this new partnership. For example, when a shipment leaves Asia, DCL’s receiving system receives notifications and is automatically updated. Shipping and finished goods inventory data is continually shared between DCL and Flexport systems, enabling Flexport clients to make intelligent manufacturing decisions based on a variety of data: stock balances and sell through rates at DCL, and inventory in transit with Flexport.

Ryan Peterson, CEO of Flexport, points out the advantage to this, “Because we monitor re-order cycles, we are able to provide our customers with a single platform, which will instantly trigger notifications to replenish inventory for DCL customers.”

“The partnership is a big benefit for our customers,” observes Dave Tu, President of DCL Logistics. “For the first time, our customers can now ship, track and manage all of their freight in a single online dashboard whether it’s in the DCL or the Flexport platform. With our partnership with Flexport, all of the intricacies and complexities of global freight transportation are simplified.”
