Proper identification of material and accurate inventory tracking are key components to help companies and customs brokers reap the financial rewards of importing/exporting goods. As material ships from foreign sources, our OpenTrac™ application can receive electronic customs documents and advance shipment notifications.

Once shipments are received, material can be uniquely identified with barcodes to expedite tracking of goods in and out of trade zones. To ensure all material is accounted for appropriately and accurately, e-communication linkages with trading partners provides real time inventory status information. By reducing manual processes and expediting the administrative functions, OpenTrac™ provides speed and reliability to large import and export trading companies.

Tracking material is critical to maintaining inventory accuracy within a just-in-time (JIT) environment that automotive customers require. Using advanced Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) technology, OpenTrac™ provides real-time information on every piece of material from the steel producers to the auto industry, and all points in between. Using the same e-commerce network, external inventory is easily audited without manual procedures. OpenTrac™ ensures that all data is validated and nothing gets lost.
