Distribution is all about efficiency and making the information you need available in real-time at your fingertips.
Efficiencies That Streamline Your Business
Productivity benefits include:
- Increased efficiencies due to scanning and mobile technologies
- Reduction and removal of manual processes
- Human errors are virtually eliminated
- Smarter business decisions based on real-time information
- Integration with partners via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) reduces bottlenecks in the flow of information
- Streamlined operations through customised workflows
- Optimise your business’s performance
Approach Mobility Holistically
By mobilising your system and equipping staff you are able to remove manual and paper-based processes, speed the capture of data and share information faster. This leads to greater efficiency, accuracy and visibility across your organisation. Forward thinking organisations with access to these tools are able to make better-informed business decisions, optimise processes and have more agility in the market.
Optimised Manifest and Freight Planning
Effective manifest planning is critical for every logistics operator. It is vital to maximise load efficiencies while also ensuring there is sufficient haulage capacity to meet client demands. Our Transport Management Software offers an array of powerful capabilities which assist staff in planning even the most complex jobs from pick-ups, local distribution, line-haul or point-to-point distribution.
Information in the system can be filtered to assist in focusing on each individual planning task. Tools help with load optimisation by continually monitoring the size and weight of loads as they are being built. In aiming to get the process down to ‘plan by exception’, the software can automatically populate a manifest which can then be amended if required. Covering both plan-to-run and plan-to-route options, the system can also readily deal with multi-legging and multi-drivers.
Visual Scheduling and Route Optimisation
Planning the optimum drive times and delivery sequences can be a time-consuming and inefficient practice. Route optimisation allows you to quickly plan deliveries while taking into account the most efficient routes, avoiding any detours and taking into account satellite captured historical traffic data while factoring in your customers’ delivery requirements.
Our solutions help you to reduce the cost per kilometre across your fleet and keep an eye on routes, while reducing the man hours required to manage the entire process.
Pallets Are The Hidden Cost In Transport
One of the hidden costs in supply chain management is the pallet. However, through accurate tracking, this cost can be significantly reduced.
For this reason, our Transportation Management System offers a powerful electronic pallet management feature which tracks the number and type of pallets that are dispatched with each load. By tracking pallets as they move through the supply chain, using PDA scanners and barcodes, operators can easily determine their location and who should be charged for their usage.
Smarter Charging and Billing Engine
In any business, no two clients are exactly alike. For this reason, our TMS incorporates a sophisticated charging and billing engine that treats every client as an individual.
Granular control allows users to create price lists for each client which can be changed as required. If/then statements and sophisticated algorithms cater for complex jobs which could include multiple legs, different contractors and different types of transport.
Bulk updates to price lists can be completed quickly and easily while existing rate cards can be copied and tweaked to match the needs of new clients. Our transport software takes the hassle out of customer pricing and billing.
