A new connector between Bamboo Rose and TradeLinkOne providing accurate data intelligence will simplify and accelerate the shipping, labeling, and customs processes
Boston – November 9, 2021 – Bamboo Rose, the Boston-based Multi-Enterprise Platform connecting clients with industry business partners involved in global sourcing and supply chain management, recently launched a new partnership with TradeLinkOne, a Supply Chain Solutions company, to streamline shipping, labeling, customs, and logistics for manufacturers, retailers, and suppliers.
As part of this partnership, Bamboo Rose will feed instructions on carton packing and container packing based on Bamboo Rose Purchase Orders (POs) directly to TradeLinkOne through a new connector.
TradeLinkOne will leverage guidance from Bamboo Rose POs to accurately inform factory employees about carton placement and packing restrictions through a scannable barcode. These instructions will ensure products are packed into the correct carton and container. Once containers are packed, TradeLinkOne will automatically send Advanced Ship Notices (ASNs) to retailers through the Bamboo Rose platform.
This newest integration boosts data accessibility and accuracy to streamline containerizations and simplify the shipping process. The connector helps to accelerate product packing, reduce the risk that containers will be packed with the wrong carton of goods, and reduce the risk of misplaced inventory.
Additionally, the new connector will accelerate customs clearance and reduce costs associated with customs by improving container contents data accuracy. Feeding accurate packing information directly to TradeLinkOne through the Bamboo Rose platform will also improve the chances of importers being certified as self-filers, which further reduces the cost of shipping by eliminating the need for a customs broker.
Scan and pack capabilities offered through TradeLinkOne and Bamboo Rose will also enable logistics stakeholders to leverage cross-docking to achieve faster deliveries, reducing efforts at distribution centers and ensuring retailers have the flexibility needed to enable direct drop shipments.
Ultimately, this integration will provide suppliers, manufacturers, and retailers with complete product visibility from the factory to store shelves to reduce the time and expense associated with shipping.
The level of data accessibility and transparency provided by Bamboo Rose also enables retailers to send more personalized product assortments to different geographies and markets based on sales data per demographic.
“Given the current supply chain climate, I’m very excited about our work with TradeLinkOne to simplify logistics and reduce risk during shipping,” said Bamboo Rose CEO Sue Welch. “We are confident combining intelligent product and purchase order data from Bamboo Rose with TradeLinkOne’s lightweight scan and pack solutions will help to improve agility and accuracy at each step of the supply chain. Our users will see measurable improvements from faster, more accurate shipping and labeling.”
This partnership furthers Bamboo Rose and TradeLinkOne’s mission of improving digital communication and coordination between suppliers, manufacturers, and retailers for a more transparent supply chain.
