Warehouse Management System – 3PL Central

Responding to a requirement from our clients for real time information, Online Distribution has teamed up with 3PL Central to provide a cloud-based Warehouse Management System (WMS). This powerful software provides a window into our warehouse, enabling our clients to view stock on hand, place orders, view transactions and more. Integrations are possible via EDI, with most popular e-commerce shopping carts and other business systems, all in real-time.

Note: 3PL Central is best used in Microsoft Explorer. If you are asked to download “Silverlight” this is a safe and free-of-charge Microsoft tool.
