It doesn't say full time in QS but you need a system to use in case your EDI and ASN systems go down. There are companies available that will accept your fax and remit the proper information for you any time of day.
Some companies ship (ASN) and receive schedules (EDI) 24 hours a day so there needs to be a system to ensure compliance.
Possibly part of a contingency plan?
