Millennium Steel of Texas, LP supply chain management and warehouse/processing operations are powered by Opentrac Enterprise System. Opentrac Enterprise is an integrated Enterprise system developed specifically for the steel warehousing and steel processing industry. The web-based OpenTrac Enterprise system is designed to provide transaction management capabilities for processors and service centers, linking them to companies that supply and purchase their material.

Millennium Steel of Texas, LP was one of the pioneers in developing this system along with our technical partners Northrop Grumman CIS. The Opentrac system was implemented at MSS, Princeton facility in Nov 2002 and has been used to manage the supply chain and warehouse/processing operations.

Some of the advantages of Opentrac system are:

  • EDI based system, relies on EDI for populating data for all material. No data entry anywhere while receiving material.

  • Location tracking using bar coded location tags throughout the warehouse.

  • Built in quality and specification checking gates to ensure that wrong material is never shipped to the customer.
  • Route based system capable of handling tracking and process of both coils and blank material.
