A smart supply chain is only possible by bundling all information and linking it to its related processes.
The data is transferred by intelligent systems to:
- the conveyor system's control unit,
- connected inventory control systems,
- warehouse management software,
- or higher-level ERP and SAP solutions.
All volume and weight data is captured in a way that is certified and made available for automatic invoicing. This data also supports precise planning of shipments. Better capacity utilization means lower costs, and thus more efficient logistics.
Data security and a robust, transparent IT infrastructure are also of growing importance. Seamless traceability along the entire supply chain is particularly critical for international logistics service providers. All information can be archived locally and centrally, and can be accessed at any time through a web-based interface. The systems are certified and use redundant servers because the only way to prevent possible breakdowns in the logistics chain is to store data twice.
