An increasing number of businesses use web-based solutions to generate additional benefits for all partners through simplified communication.
Web-based software is of particular importance in logistics, as it accelerates and simplifies communication. Even complex information can be transported and displayed on any computer.
A broad palette of standard web solutions is available for freight management, which can be seamlessly integrated in your current product range.
Large enterprises usually have an extremely heterogeneous tariff structure for increased cost efficiency. This multiplicity of tariffs and differing forwarders complicates structure lucidity. Poor decisions for freight assignment are often the result.
e-freight guarantees, as a web-based database solution for intranet and internet, that the most favourable forwarder will be quickly and dependably determined in daily freight assignment. Simple parameterization enables a high individuality to be attained, comparable to that of customized systems.
Assignment possibilities with e-freight:
Range of services of e-freight:
LP/2 users use this up-to-date extension to write their freight orders automatically – within a specified group of forwarders and carriers – on their own homepage. Thus, the transport forwarders have an overview of the shipper’s freight demand and can bid on the freights that interest them.
Shippers and forwarders alike benefit from the faster, simplified operation sequences within the area of volatile markets and negotiable prices.
Quick dispatching from ramps lowers freight costs. To improve coordination of incoming or outgoing vehicles, individual gates may be booked directly from the transporter over the internet, with aid of the GateScheduler. This significantly minimizes downtimes, while the need of storage personnel is equally reduced.
Effective time window management leads to substantial cost reductions for all participants in the dispatch process.
Mode of Operation:
The Tendering Portal is a market-ready transport tendering platform created by Staedtler-Logistics, offering enormous strategic potential to large shippers. Contract businesses and yearly volumes are simply and clearly put out to tender over the Internet.
LP-online offers decentralized compilation over the Web for orders from various geographically dispersed sources.
The newest technology is available for order compilation. Simple compilation assignments may be divided among several locations but remain bundled in one database. The application is based on Microsoft’s Rich Internet Application, Silverlight.
Transport orders can be compiled and processed locally, and results can be called up accordingly.
Fine-grained multi-client capability is guaranteed by a definable rule system, allowing the most diverse user groups, including customer support, external clients/retailers, forwarding agents, etc., access to information relevant to their respective needs. This renders services like shipment tracking, for example, easily attainable.
All interfaces used by the routing and scheduling system and the distance module are available as standardized web services that can be integrated in existing client portals (see TRAMPAS WebServices).
The web services for the routing and scheduling system and the distance module provide the basic functions for TRAMPAS WebClients (see TRAMPAS WebClient) and enable integration of available routing and scheduling or distance module functions via the standardized SOAP web service technology in the client’s existing web portals.
The routing and scheduling system can therefore be integrated even more effectively in existing system environments and creates, through web access, a straightforward, efficient option for local preparation and compilation of relevant order or tour data.
