Checking in goods or otherwise validating shipments can be such a hassle, an exercise that can be very time-consuming, more so without the necessary tools in place. However, with ASNs, the process can take relatively less time, particularly when the vendor and the customer are known to have trusted relationships. Of course, trust hardly comes by cheaply, a reason vendors are encouraged to hold an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) status. The coupling of these two elements consequently offers better or smoother transactions, precisely affording high-level assurance that in-transit deliveries are correct and thus no need to check shipment once received. A quick barcode scan alternatively does the magic.
