The JLS Onboarding Process Ensures a Smooth Implementation of Your
Logistics and Transportation Management Services
The key to a smooth transition with any process change is proper preparation. Jarrett Logistics Systems has a very thorough process to implement a new client to ensure that they are fully ready to handle the business from all angles.
The functional areas involved in a new logistics solution implementation may include, but are not limited to:
- Systems Setup
- Carrier Notification
- Operational Procedures Documentation
- Supplier Communication
- Purchase Order Changes
- Reporting Requirements
- Overall Training of JLS Team Members on the Customer’s Business
As your third party logistics provider, JLS is an extension of your business; therefore, it is important that we learn everything possible about how you conduct your business.
How Long Will the Implementation Process Take?
A standard implementation period takes approximately 6-8 weeks and concludes with an Implementation Kick-off meeting with you and your team. The kick-off meeting typically occurs 2-3 weeks prior to the start-up date. This allows for you to meet your Jarrett Logistics operational team, discuss your specific operational procedures and ensure open lines of communication. After this meeting, we finalize any business and system requirements, and ensure our operational team is prepared for your start-up date. Communication, communication, communication – this is the key to any successful relationship.
Formal Review Sessions are Key
JLS will hold a formal review session to discuss the first 30 days of of your new logistics services. We realize that this is the time when most questions arise in a new relationship. We can also hold review sessions at 90 days, 6 months and 1 year. Jarrett Logistics is willing to meet as often as a customer wants in order to manage their transportation management process.
