Communication via an EDI-system with all involved Logistics Service Providers (LSP).
Electronic data exchange between all involved parties is the basic foundation for the digitalization of the world of logistics. Our transport management system (TMS) provides this basic connection between shipping agents in the industry and the LSPs. Our customers only need one data connection. We’ll organize the data exchange with the LSPs. We will also deal with any LSP changes so that our client does not need to organize them.
Digitalization of the goods movement.
Digitisation should not remain a buzzword, because without transparency in the flow of goods, an efficient and semi-automated supply chain can no longer be managed.
Based on the electronic status of a shipment, mass shipment status can be machine monitored and filtered out. Well-trained logistics experts focus only on the deviations that make manual intervention necessary.
Evaluation of suppliers with Non-Conformity-Reporting (NCR)
You can only improve what you can measure. An objective performance evaluation of all LSPs is a simple way to qualitatively improve supplier performance.
There are many potential saving opportunities that should not be disregarded in managing freight costs. According to renowned studies, 100% freight inspection can save up to 2 % of freight turnover. Manually auditing freight costs is no longer realistic, which is why we rely on automated solutions. In accordance with LSPs, we convert our clients’ accounting system to an electronic system and install IT tools that can automatically check all shipping invoices. Our logistics experts then only need to check for any discrepancies and provide our clients completely checked invoices.
Our services are also transparent. A customized KPI-model transparently visualizes the performances of all parties involved. The Key Performance Indicator (KPI) provides an overview of the performance of all parties and tracks the development of costs over time, enabling us to intervene when necessary and/or define new measures together.
