Century is the gatekeeper controlling all vendor bookings on your behalf (LCL, FCL and air). Century secures space and equipment from your nominated ocean carriers to ensure orders are correctly scheduled to meet the “in DC” dates uploaded in your PO file. We have established relationships with all the major carriers and NVOs, which is a plus for our customers especially during peak season. We pre-program your carrier allocations, service contract #’s and allowable port pairs into VMS? to drive compliance with your requirements.
Century transmits electronic shipping instructions (eSI) to carriers through any one of the three carrier portals, GT Nexus, Inttra and Cargo Smart. About 80% of the eSI data auto-populates from our booking module, promoting on-time, and accurate BL issuance.
