Transport & Logstics
Advancements and updates in software animation for the field of transport and logistics have changed the perception of deliveries for the end-user. The expectation of customers to receive next-day deliveries makes it essential for a third party logistics organization to be ready to provide the desired services.
The knowledge of where the shipment is currently located, and when it will arrive, is crucial for both the sender and the receiver. Thanks to technologies like cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), Metrosion excels in customer service and information in the transport and logistics sector.
Our team is always looking for innovative methods that move the transport industry forward. Due to the high speeds and lower margins of the transport industry, money saved is definitely money earned.
Increased Profitability for Customers
At Metrosion, we work to increase overall profitability for our customers by reducing losses and increasing the productivity of daily operations.
In the transport and logistics industry, the main elements of the business are man and machine. This labor-intensive industry requires expert planning and decision making and we develop software that ensures productivity quadruples over a period of three months through the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and cloud computing techniques.
Our software makes the daily tasks of the service provider more accessible by handling daily tasks like freight calculation, route planning, shipment tracking, cross dockings, transit management, delivery proofing, yard management, and other activities related to the business.
In addition, our software solutions ensure:
Orders to every destination are completely automated.
Mapping the delivery routes using real-time data to take deviations like traffic congestions into account. Our software also provides alternate routes for the delivery to reach its destination.
Gathering account addresses for last-minute orders using stored data and online maps.
Communicate with delivery executives if there are orders canceled at the last minute to save delivery time and costs.
Transport Management Systems
Also known as TMS, transport management systems handle the planning, execution, and transporting of shipments for customers from one location to another. A TMS involves two main activities:
Research and analyze the rates/costs related to the administrations of transporters/vendors that are accessible to transport the organization of a client
Book a shipment and track its movement until it is delivered to its scheduled destination
The benefits of using a TMS include improved shipping productivity, lowered costs, greater transparency throughout the system, and an increase in customer loyalty.
Warehouse Management Systems
Also known as WMS, a warehouse management system is an arrangement that enables industries and third-party logistics companies to control and regulate distribution center activities. Each activity in the delivery process can be planned, executed, and monitored using a WMS.
Depending on the size of the organization, as well as the type of industry and the implementation methods, warehouse management systems vary in their design and complexity. However, there are some general characteristics of WMS:
Warehouse Design – While a WMS can be customized, the workflow and bin allotment remain similar in most cases.
Inventory Tracking – Through the use of AIDC (Automatic Identification and Data Capture) and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), the search for goods in any size warehouse becomes an easier task.
Receiving and Storing – Using pick to light or pick to voice technology, the receiving, and storage tasks for workers become easier while also saving time and increasing productivity.
Shipping – All documentation for specific types of deliveries can be automated which allows the “pick-pack-ship” process to only take a few minutes. With the click of a few buttons, all of the documentation, such as the invoice, that is needed by the customer can be generated.
Labor Management – This WMS characteristic keeps an eye on the KPIs of warehouse workers to create an increase in productivity.
Reporting – Performance analysis in simple diagrams to help identify critical areas management needs to address.
Fleet and Asset Management Systems (FMS)
Our FMS software platform performs daily tasks such as acquisition, allocation, and the disposal of assets related to the task of a worker or procurement. These three tasks can be performed regardless of the assets being purchased, rented, or leased.
Your team will be able to easily manage orders by maintaining the data of all equipment through relevant documents such as bills, contracts for lease or rent, warranty and guarantee documents, and technical specifications.
Metrosion’s centralized management system uses cloud computing methodologies that ensure 100% security of all data. You will save on the costs, and space, of heavy equipment that would need to be installed within your offices for data storage.
Auto Rating and Billing Systems
Integration is a vital part of the current digital landscape. Everything that comes to an office is billed and everything that is shipped out is invoiced in the business transactions. The integration of systems makes billing and invoicing an easy part of the transport and logistics process.
Even with the increases in automation, the need for skilled labor does not end in labor-intensive industries such as transport and logistics. People management ensures higher productivity and greater employee engagement.
Metrosion’s customized software allows you to integrate labor management or human resource management platforms. In turn, this ensures the smooth tracking of the workflow as well as the tracking and storing of employee-related activities such as performance records, salary history, employee incentives, and data gathering.
The integration process enables companies to enjoy maximum effectiveness from a wide range of employees such as truck drivers, forklift operators, clerical staff, and warehouse employees.
Time is of the essence in the transport and logistics industry for both service providers and end-users. Time can be lost due to necessary repairs and asset replacement. Our software makes it easy to track down the asset location, understand any technical specifications, and identify the right tools to get the asset back in working order in the shortest amount of time.
Precise data allows companies to more easily make decisions that positively impact their business. Thanks to the integration, data can be visualized regarding specific departments such as the fleet, freight warehouse, and labor as well as integrated data (of all of these departments) to better analyze and understand their overall performance.
Visibility makes the decision process clearer for handling the tasks at hand in order to achieve the desired results.
Automated Data Sharing
Metrosion’s software helps the data sharing process both in the organization and across third parties. The user is assigned credentials and is able to control any data that is shared with others across the platforms. Confidential information is only shared with those that need to view that data while still being able to share any necessary project details.
It is time-consuming for delivery executives to develop route plans while still being able to execute deliveries by the stipulated time or date. Metrosion’s software allows delivery executives to plan routes (TMS) with just a few clicks.
The TMS also connects with online maps across multiple operating systems to provide real-time delivery data to both the sender and receiver.
Independent, Flexible and Secure
Using a cloud-based digital solution, Metrosion is able to deliver a completely customized solution that is specific to the requirements of your business. The custom-designed software is flexible and can be changed to meet the evolving needs of your business in the coming years.
The digital platform can be accessed anywhere in the world and part of it can even be accessed without the need to connect to the Internet. The accessibility of the platform can be extended anywhere you go which means a business decision can be made and executed from anywhere you are located.
