Information Systems at NYK Logistics
It is essential for a total logistics provider, whether operating on a national or international scale, to maintain its’ business networks in a global context and link numerous production and consumption points where required. NYK Logistics uses information systems that bridges these network connections with sea, air and land transport and delivery networks. NYK Logistics’ system allows customers to track their product throughout the logistics pipeline and its condition. The strength of our logistics business is in our ability to provide seamless services – throughout Australia or worldwide.
Through our global network, our integrated solutions form a total logistics service covering such logistics functions as order and inventory management, distribution, consolidation and transportation.
E-Trade using EDI/EAI over a VAN
NYK Logistics exchanges files on behalf of a number of our customers with the major retail chains as a value add to our normal warehouse and transport operations. These files contain information about the order and delivery and fully describe the content of each carton in the delivery.
Full integration with the customer’s host system
For customers using the NYK Warehouse Management System, we provide full integration with our customer’s host ERP systems. Files are exchanged using FTP or other standard transport mechanisms. The files are in XML or other mutually agreed formats for ease of importing into the customer’s system. This is usually done over a dedicated link, but can be over the public Internet if required.
