The Supplier page contains the list of companies or organizations that sell or supply goods, equipment, or services to another customer.

When YMS is used as a standalone application, the entry of suppliers directly into the application is supported. If YMS is not a standalone application, then the list of suppliers is downloaded from the host system into YMS.

The supplier list provides a cross-reference to inbound purchase orders and advance shipment notices (ASN). YMS uses cross-reference to match the supplier with the inbound equipment to identify the contents or products, within a specific trailer or rail car. If issues are discovered during gate check-in, then the Supplier page provides all necessary contact information to report and resolve the issue.

Whether suppliers are downloaded from the host or entered manually, you can view, add, modify, or delete records using the application.
