An efficient transport control system optimizes both the use of vehicles (forklifts, trucks, tractors, tugger trains etc.) and also the scheduling of transport assets (trailers, containers etc.) for internal logistics. Transport orders are generated, inbound and outbound deliveries are organized, storage positions are managed, and loading and unloading runs are initiated - all in a fully automated and transparent manner.
The transport management system renders in-plant materials handling:
- more transparent, reliable, and on-time
- better synchronized with the manufacturing process
- significantly more efficient and productive (15% - 35%).
The transport control system provides rapid response to any ad-hoc tasks and rush jobs. It finally provides online tracking & tracing of materials, vehicles, trailers, and other assets, as well as dedicated KPI reports on the entire in-plant supply chain.
