CMS Distribution gets a prime solution for Amazon process compliance

CMS Distribution is Europe’s leading specialist distributor, supplying business and consumer technologies in the UK, Ireland, France, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden. CMS work with over 60 suppliers worldwide and over 3000 resellers, including Amazon.

CMS required a solution that allows them to comply with the Amazon “License Plate Receipt” process. They needed a system that supported GS1 standard SSCC (Serial Shipping Container Code) compliant Amazon Certified labels and EDI (Electronic Data Exchange) advanced shipping notifications.

We developed a Packing App using Movilizer software that:

  • captures the required SSCC details in real-time
  • prints labels to Amazon’s specifications out of SAP
  • triggers the EDI messaging of packed deliveries/parcels direct to Amazon
  • The whole process took just six weeks from app realisation to design and implementation.

    CMS now have a fully certified Amazon solution that gives accurate advanced notice of deliveries via ASNs (Advanced Shipping Notifications).

    CMS can trace everything that’s in each individual box, even if there are several boxes on an order. Customers know exactly what they are going to receive in advance which means they no longer have to re-label the stock when it arrives.

    The increased data accuracy and traceability dramatically reduces query resolution saving time for CMS and improving their customer reputation.

    Whether you need an out of the box SAP logistics solution, or a bespoke package. We’d be happy to deliver.
