Have you ever wondered when a shipment is going to arrive or how you could get a packing list for a container that is about to deliver? Have you ever wondered what an item carton quantity is and its export carton size and weight? Have you ever needed a copy of an Order Confirmation or needed to print out an invoice? The East West Manufacturing Customer Portal has all of this information available to you without leaving your desk or even making a phone call and it's as easy as logging into Facebook. With this secure website you can view a wide range of reports specific to your company.

A few examples of the reports the East West Customer Portal offers:

Open Order Detail – Shows the customer their open orders and their status either unconfirmed, on-the-water, in-the-air, or in production along with other information about your recent orders.
