Transportation and logistics systems involve the planning, execution, and control of transportation and logistics processes to move goods from one location to another. They involve a variety of activities, such as planning transportation routes, dispatching vehicles, tracking shipments, and coordinating activities between different actors in the supply chain.
Digitalisation allows processes to be automated and optimized, resulting in a more efficient supply chain. The automation of booking and ordering processes as well as the optimization of routes, reduce the effort for manual processes and increase efficiency.
By reducing manual processes, errors and costs can be reduced. The more efficient use of resources and the avoidance of waste also contribute to cost savings.
Transparency in delivery
For example, with the help of digitalisation, shipments can be tracked in real time, which allows for greater transparency and better control over the transport process. Customers can be informed about the progress of their shipments, which leads to higher customer satisfaction.
Transparency about the transport process
Transparency for the collection of consignments from major logistics customers is also increased through the use of digitalisation, which enables better planning in logistics centres.
Digitalisation can improve safety standards through the monitoring and management of transports. Furthermore, digitalisation can also help to ensure compliance with regulations and standards.
