Logistics in manufacturing deals with planning, organising and controlling the flow of raw materials and finished products from the moment of organising procurements for raw material, through warehouses, communication with participants of a supply chain, up to distribution, settlements and control. It is also involved in the process of planning siting and construction of factories, distribution areas, selection of partners and overall organization of processes.
The primary objective of logistics in production is to increase the feasibility and reliability of deliveries at the lowest possible logistics and production costs.
Good organisation of the process helps to avoid waste of time and resources, downtimes and unnecessary equipment retooling, thus reducing a unit production costs.
Often in the existing logistics network undiscovered resources lie dormant, but the effort and cost to find them is very high and complicated.
Optilo allows for the efficient conduct of strategic analyses on the distribution of warehouses and x-docks, and also on fleet selection, so that its structure can be the guarantor of cost-effective relationships and flows from the sender to the final recipient. vEN
‘What if…?’ simulations conducted with efficient costs allow for a phased implementation of improvements and reduction of the risk of making wrong decisions to the minimum.
Integrated planning system which minimises occurrence of bottlenecks in the process. One place to manage full truck, general cargo and courier orders.
Optimised selection of subcontractors from own fleet, contractual associates, spot carriers and logistics operators.
Efficient and effective management of individual elements of the process, starting from matters related to contracts for raw material and product, through scheduling deliveries, ending with handling the entire process of loading and unloading.
Efficient delivery and reception schedules, notification schedules, reduction of time and distance, selection of a proper carrier and means of transport.
Immediate information on system events that have occurred or have not occurred. Escalation to appropriate people and instant action to eliminate the problem.
Integration with supplier’s, customer’s, logistics operator’s systems, GPS devices and freight exchange.
Full functionality for handling processes of road, sea, rail and air transport. Modules for route optimisation, selection of subcontractors and rolling stock.
Automation of communication with performers of transport services, both at the stage related to the selection of carrier as well as the final stage of the process associated with settling for provided services. Reduction of time needed for verification and settlement of invoices.
Module allowing customers for making orders, valuations, viewing order status and access to settlements for services. Functionality ensuring standards and a high level of customer service.
Functionality to support strategic decisions on the selection of companies with whom we want to work in the long term, on implementation of permanent contracts (sea, air, rail or road). It also supports operational decisions and one-time queries.
Reduction of time connected with verification and comparison of multi-criteria quotations for provision of transport services. Guarantee of selecting the best price offer for given relationships.
Making contracts for supply of raw materials. The system supports scheduling supplies according to a contract, creating orders for raw materials and transportation. Reduction of time associated with handling these processes, monitoring and controlling operations.
