In the current benchmark study “Digitalisierungsindex Mittelstand 2019/2020”, Deutsche Telekom has determined what the industry has known for a long time: Above-average digitization of German SMEs in transport and logistics. Meanwhile, the industry’s “digital leaders” and top digitizers reach 86 out of every 100 achievable points, representing 10 percent of logisticians interviewed.
In the next century, leaders will be those who help others. Bill Gates
International market leaders and innovative newcomers are set to share an exciting conversation on logistics at the Messe München— and we’ll be in attendance!
Route optimisation enables you to quickly and easily determine the best order for customer visits, including in the case of fixed appointments.
Green logistics means managing logistics processes in an ecologically efficient manner.
The complexity and dynamic nature of logistics make it an ideal use case for big data, the advantages of which lie in optimising resource consumption and improving operational efficiency.
Intermodal logistics refers to a multi-link transport chain in which a cargo is transported using two or more modes of transport, without changing the transport container.
Now, the last KPI for supply chain management – and the most important!
Time for the next round of KPIs! We hope you find them interesting while reading.
Logistics companies in a broad sense, that is transport, construction logistics, intra-company transport and recycling providers, are in as high demand as ever. Competitive and cost pressures, increasing customer expectations, regulatory requirements and the needs of employees are making the industry an ever more challenging one. In addition, there is a growing need for up-to-date knowledge on new, disruptive technologies. The list of issues facing the industry is virtually endless. however, some challenges are more painful than others:
Fuel costs are unpredictable. The industry has scarcely any influence in this regard and is at the mercy of the business practices of oil-producing countries and changing climatic conditions.
Demands are rising all the time. Customers want to be able to maintain an internal overview of all relevant information, including arrival times and orders.
Work as a driver is difficult, stressful and increasingly less attractive. From customers, drivers receive far more complaints than praise.
The statutory regulations pertaining to CO2 emissions are demanding ever greater levels of investment.
The costs and time required for the digitalisation of processes requires a clear strategy and careful planning.
Digitalisation also requires specific know-how and appropriately qualified professionals.
Technology is evolving massively in terms of its disruptive potential. Autonomous vehicles and drones are being used on an ever more frequent basis.
In an ideal world, all parties win. Customers, employees and companies alike benefit from increases in efficiency, effectiveness and productivity. Business process are optimised and up-to-date, and relevant key figures are always to hand—all thanks to an integrated IT system. Automation eliminates the need for many manual processes, which means that fewer mistakes take place, the work becomes more interesting, and employees have more time to focus on business-relevant activities. “Operational excellence” is no longer a buzzword—it’s reality.
At Nufatron, we believe we have a duty to guide our customers into and through their digital transformation. With tranSvias, our cloud solutions for digital logistics & intermodal fleet management, we increase our customers’ competitiveness, enable easy & transparent work, optimise all economic & ecological components and help to protect the environment. Of course, our expert knowledge also plays a role!
The focus lay on creating a holistic solution. The solution is fully integrated into the existing IT landscape, provides employees with all necessary information in real time and eliminates the need to carry out a number of laborious tasks by hand, as it was before. In addition, it provides customers with a complete, up-to-date overview, enabling them to perform internal management of orders and delivery times.
It can also help mitigate the issue of driver shortage: by providing route transparency for drivers and customers, it reduces driver stress. Among other things, it uses real-time GPS data to automatically deliver a notification to the customer when a delivery is delayed. The driver doesn’t have to worry about updating the customer themselves. Drivers are able to carry out administrative tasks on their mobile devices and have more time at home for family and relaxation. As a result, driving becomes more attractive as an employment option.
Fuel consumption can be significantly reduced through optimised route planning and intelligent fleet management, saving costs and doing the environment good. In addition, the software generates informative CO2 emissions reports and makes it possible to track all processes in a seamless fashion. Thanks to this transparency, companies can position themselves as pioneers in environmental protection and actively contribute to solving the climate issue.
