Plan in seconds while saving up to 50% of total costs.
If you have multiple sites, optimally utilising your vehicles and drivers is no easy task. Planning at an individual site level relies on specific operational knowhow and it is often difficult to get a sense of how individual sites are performing vs. plan. Further, optimisation opportunities are often missed as a result of these not being seen at a depot-by-depot level. These missed optimisation opportunities at depot level, when extrapolated over a whole organisation, often means that there is a significant imbalance in spread of resources across the board.
Our powerful and configurable Multi Depot SaaS solution allows central planning by taking into account every conceivable operational parameter from time windows to driver schedules / shifts to product sizes and vehicle capacities to driver skills to particular capabilities of certain vehicles (for example lifting equipment etc.) to ensure the best, most optimal plans are produced each and every time. Our solution also allows you to handle different product categories (ambient, frozen, fragile etc.) and security requirements (signature, barcode, asymmetric code, photo – or a combination of some or all).
As a result of the TM Multi Depot solution providing your planning teams crystal-clear visibility over all your depots (and associated resources) at a glance, resources can be maximised and wastage (as a result of suboptimal utilisation / routing) significantly reduced.
In addition to the saved planning time which results from the powerful one-click, centralised approach, eLogiiTM provides actionable insights from the field empowering your planning team to focus more strategically on execution of the plan – growing your bottom line in the process!
You can add tasks to the system either via API connection, bulk CSV upload or individually. You can also add key operational setup items such as depots, vehicles, drivers, schedules etc. in the same way.
Communications, both between the field and your operating team and between the field and your customers is streamlined ensuring that all parties receive the most accurate and relevant information (full customisable ETA messages, status notifications / updates etc.).
Regardless of the number of depots you have, the size of your fleet of vehicles (or the mix of vehicle types), we’ve got you covered with the power to take into account all of your available resources (vehicles, drivers) and all required operational parameters and constraints. You will be serving your customers even better while saving substantial money in no time!
You add all relevant operational data (tasks/deliveries, drivers/schedules, vehicles, specific operational constraints etc.) to the eLogiiTM platform via API, bulk upload or individually. Our proprietary algorithms take into account of all attributes and constraints to produce the most optimal sequence of collections and drop-offs and present this to your operations and driver teams in a way that is most useful for their particular role.
Groups of deliveries / tasks are allocated to the most appropriate drivers (based on schedule, skills etc.) and vehicles (based on capacity, capabilities etc.) and a series of routes are then produced with precise ETAs for each and every delivery/task. You are able to fix a route and make adjustments to this fixed master plan / route on a daily, weekly etc. basis based on live events.
Last minute changes can seamlessly be taken into account while at the same time ensuring viability of the overall plan incorporating these changes.
