Trucking Software

Our solutions support single-stage and large multi-stage transport networks – from the “first mile” to the “last mile,” with comprehensive functionality from recording and planning, to operational transport execution including track and trace, and invoicing.

Challenges for today’s transportation management

Efficient transport processes, especially for multi-modal transports, are fast becoming a key competitive factor for companies of all sizes and industries. Both shippers and logistics providers experience growing pressure to automate their transportation management, as manual and spreadsheet-driven processes become too inefficient and error-prone, transports take longer on increasingly congested roads, SLAs become more stringent and, cost pressures increase.

Challenges include:

  • Higher order and consignment volumes, with smaller batch sizes
  • Complex transport chains and growing vehicle numbers
  • Customer expectations for next-day or same-day delivery
  • Requirements for shipment visibility by all stakeholders
  • Tighter time windows for arrivals and departures
  • The need to quickly react to disruptions and changes in customer requests
  • A lack of qualified drivers
  • Scarcity of returnable load devices
  • Compliance with regulations, and local and international laws
