Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Runcorn based shipping agent Frank Armitt & Son announced the launch of their new website which provides the North West Steel Trade with an innovative steel freight management system.

The new online reporting system offers suppliers and companies in the steel industry the ability to manage their imported materials online using Armitt’s Steel Management Portal which is accessible through their new website.

Customers can log in to the portal at their convenience to monitor the warehousing and delivery status of their imports. The system allows customers to filter their steel freight on coil number, size, weight and delivering vessel. There is also the facility to view images online of the material after discharge.

Key information is presented to steel importers such as the number of days their materials have been in stock and when their material has been requested for delivery.

In addition Stock call off requests can be made online which are sent directly to Armitt’s logistics team. Specific materials can be selected and ordered for delivery. The new system alleviates errors and allows our steel customers to complete load requests at a time convenient to them.

Charles Gray, Managing Director at Frank Armitt commented “The Armitt Group are continually striving to improve the quality of the service that we provide for our customers. The launch of our new web site and on line stock reporting system will further enhance this service giving our customers greater control over their stock. This access to up to date information alongside our dedicated and experienced steel management team will ensure that stock is managed efficiently and cost effectively ensuring that we remain a trusted logistics partner to the steel industry.”

Armitt’s steel logistics division operates out of the Port of Garston and the Port of Liverpool, perfectly situated to the major motorway networks of the North West.
