Routing guides have fixed rules and regulations in place for a business’s supply chain system that vendors are supposed to abide by. This way, the products are sent using the same methods as other vendors, which creates a sense of uniformity.
They help set up a strategy for carrier selection across multiple shipments within an organization. The guides clearly list all the relevant information with clear directions for using carriers and solving problems. They also contain modes to use in specific lanes and help operations staff process the products.
