OPTIMIZED SUPPLY LOGISTICS THROUGH INTELLIGENT TIME SLOT MANAGEMENT AND EFFICIENT TRUCK SUPPLY CONTROL

Overview

The logistics of supply processes present complex challenges for industrial companies:

Uncontrolled peak times lead to:

  • Traffic jams in front of the plant and at loading points
  • Uneven utilization of employees, means of transport and loading points

Long throughput times of the trucks result in:

  • Full buffer positions
  • Demurrage charges
  • Dissatisfied drivers
  • High factory traffic

In addition, there is an insufficient overview of loading points and trucks, as well as their status and freight.

Add-Ons

The following add-ons can be booked along with the editions at an additional charge.

  • DRIVER APP (FREE)

    Smartphone app for real-time communication with drivers. This makes it possible to call up a truck driver at any time at the push of a button and simplifies the transfer of information, even if changes are made at short notice. Other features include GPS tracking and, if necessary, faster check-in.

  • TRUCK RADAR

    Truck radar enables you to track vehicles on the road using geo-coordinates (geo fencing). This allows you to see all of the trucks approaching the plant and to act with foresight.

  • Trailer Yard

    You can manage and optimize control of your trailers in the delivery and collection of goods process, including parking slot management.

  • API Interface

    Standard http interface for connecting third-party systems, e.g. an ERP system (see also Material Management).

  • SMS TO DRIVER

    Drivers can be called up at the push of a button. The driver receives an SMS with appropriate instructions. Price plus communication costs.

  • BI PROFESSIONAL

    An optimal visualization of all relevant key figures enables fast and targeted analyzes.

  • MATERIAL AND TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT

    Material deliveries and/or transports are sent directly from the ERP system to SyncroSupply. This way, the material can be linked to the inbound or outbound delivery to ensure maximum transparency.

Benefits

  • Transparent supply chain

  • Reduction of waiting and throughput times

  • Minimization of demurrage and freight rates

  • Even utilization of loading points

  • securing the porduction supply

  • more efficient resource planning

  • extensive evaluations and kpis

Car producers

Car producers

From a logistics point of view, the automotive industry is a very complex industry. The supply chains must function consistently with the involvement of countless partners in order to supply the production sites quickly and cost-effectively. Digital systems are of decisive importance in the planning and control of logistics processes. These should take the following specific features into account:

  • Large volumes of inbound logistics processes, especially as full load traffic
  • Clocked production of inbound and outbound deliveries
  • Partially or completely automated portal processes
  • Goods reconciliation with the supplier
  • Online ETA calculation of truck supply
  • Planning resources for unloading and trailer yards

Automotive Suppliers

Automotive Suppliers

The outbound logistics of automotive suppliers is dictated by the processes of automobile manufacturers. Inbound logistics, on the other hand, must be checked by the companies themselves for cost and productivity advantages. There is often a backlog here. By using the same systems, the logistics processes of automobile manufacturers and suppliers could be efficiently linked together. The supplier's outbound logistics could then be linked to the automotive manufacturer's inbound logistics. The following should be taken into account:

  • Connecting collection and delivery time slots
  • Various delivery volumes (full and part load transports)
  • Real-time truck control of the assigned loading points
  • Utilization of personnel and loading point resources

 

     

Chemistry

Chemistry

The control of truck supply and factory traffic in the chemical industry is particularly complex. The tankers route contains multiple stops with dangerous goods tests, laboratory tests and weighing procedures. In addition, special equipment for loading and unloading is used, which may only be operated by trained personnel. The following factors should be taken into account for transparent, efficient processing:

  • Direct integration of accompanying activities
  • Truck control according to the individual sequence processing
  • Dependencies between unloading and loading facilities
  • Filing of test reports or accompanying documents
  • Coordinated access to all functional stations such as scales and laboratories

Other industries

Other industries

Every industry benefits from efficient processes in supply logistics. The intelligent planning of suppliers' truck time slots smooths out peak times and enables an even utilization of loading points and resources. A real-time control reduces waiting and processing times as well as costs for all parties involved. Important key figures, such as throughput times or peak times, can be used to analyze the site's performance. Digital control systems offer the following advantages across industries:

  • Transparency of all processes in the supply chain
  • Efficient processing on the day of delivery
  • Quick start with SaaS
  • Even utilization of stand and ramp areas
  • Coordination of external and internal logistics processes
