Inbound Vendor Management

Our dedicated staff members serve as a single point of contact for your vendors and suppliers providing simplified shipment routing and dispatch for each order.  Gain outstanding visibility, command and control of your supplier base when you let the Compass team go to work for your organization.  Our five-step process makes Inbound Logistics simple.

  • Step One
    Compass will analyze your vendor base, we will look at the location, volume and requirements of each vendor.  We will use our buying power to source the top carrier for each lane.
  • Step Two
    Each vendor will be contacted and supplied with a routing guide for your shipments.  The routing guide will have our direct toll-free number as the central point of contact for dispatch.  The Compass team will insure the correct carrier routing and service level for each inbound shipment.
  • Step Three
    Large vendor orders will be volume quoted or consolidated into truckload moves with other shipments to bring additional savings to the program.
  • Step Four
    Vendor shipments will be entered into the CompassTrak web-portal giving your organization full visibility of each inbound shipment.  No need to track shipments across multiple carrier websites, the CompassTrak web-portal brings the information directly to your team.
  • Step Five
    Compass receives, audits and pays the carrier freight bills.  Your accounting team receives a single consolidated weekly invoice with all vendor shipments listed in spreadsheet detail.  No need to audit and pay individual freight bills, Compass makes inbound logistics simple so you can focus your building on business.

“Our vendors now have one access point to dispatch shipments to our plant and we have full visibility of all shipments.”
