APPROACH MOBILITY

APPROACH MOBILITY
HOLISTICALLY

Applying mobility across all aspects of your organisation is the key to unlocking all of the power of an ERP system. The ability to capture and view real-time data from almost any location is revolutionising the transport and logistics industry.

By mobilising your system and equipping staff you are able to remove manual and paper-based processes, speed the capture of data and share information faster. This leads to greater efficiency, accuracy and visibility across your organisation. Forward thinking organisations with access to these tools are able to make better-informed business decisions, optimise processes and have more agility in the market.

OPTIMISED MANIFEST

AND FREIGHT PLANNING
OPTIMISED MANIFEST 
AND FREIGHT PLANNING

Effective manifest planning is critical for every logistics operator. It is vital to maximise load efficiencies while also ensuring there is sufficient haulage capacity to meet client demands. IcsTRANSPORT offers an array of powerful capabilities which assist staff in planning even the most complex jobs from pick-ups, local distribution, line-haul or point-to-point distribution.

Information in the system can be filtered to assist in focusing on each individual planning task. Tools help with load optimisation by continually monitoring the size and weight of loads as they are being built. In aiming to get the process down to ‘plan by exception’, the software can automatically populate a manifest which can then be amended if required. Covering both plan-to-run and plan-to-route options, the system can also readily deal with multi-legging and multi-drivers.

VISUAL SCHEDULING AND

ROUTE OPTIMISATION
VISUAL SCHEDULING AND 
ROUTE OPTIMISATION

Planning the optimum drive times and delivery sequences can be a time-consuming and inefficient practice. Route optimisation allows you to quickly plan deliveries while taking into account the most efficient routes, avoiding any detours and taking into account satellite captured historical traffic data while factoring in your customers’ delivery requirements.

Our solutions help you to reduce the cost per kilometre across your fleet and keep an eye on routes, while reducing the man hours required to manage the entire process.

PALLETS ARE THE HIDDEN

COST IN TRANSPORT
PALLETS ARE THE HIDDEN 
COST IN TRANSPORT

One of the hidden costs in supply chain management is the pallet. However, through accurate tracking, this cost can be significantly reduced. For this reason, icsLogistics offers a powerful electronic pallet management feature which tracks the number and type of pallets that are dispatched with each load. By tracking pallets as they move through the supply chain, using PDA scanners and barcodes, operators can easily determine their location and who should be charged for their usage.

SMARTER CHARGING AND

BILLING ENGINE
SMARTER CHARGING AND 
BILLING ENGINE

In any business, no two clients are exactly alike. For this reason, icsLogistics incorporates a sophisticated charging and billing engine that treats every client as an individual. Granular control allows users to create price lists for each client which can be changed as required. If/then statements and sophisticated algorithms cater for complex jobs which could include multiple legs, different contractors and different types of transport.

Bulk updates to price lists can be completed quickly and easily while existing rate cards can be copied and tweaked to match the needs of new clients. icsLogistics takes the hassle out of customer pricing and billing.

WA Freight Had Too Many Systems

Seven years ago, WA Freight transported just over 100,000 tonnes and managed its business with the help of an accounting software package and a specially written customised transport and logistics industry front-end. Business growth and time, however, were taking their toll on both systems.

Garth Parry, Finance Manager, WA Freight explains, “We’d been using the transport system for four or five years and the biggest issue we had was that every time there was an upgrade in the accounts package, we had to get the transport interface re-written so that everything flowed through to accounts correctly. This was frustrating because it meant we were always lagging with the accounts system. Often we found it wasn’t worth carrying out the upgrade because of the interruption it would cause to our transport system.”

In addition, the functionality offered by the transport module was falling behind when compared to solutions used by rest of the industry. “We knew it was time to move and upgrade the accounting infrastructure,” Parry adds.
