When No One Works With Transport Management Anymore
You wake up in a panic. It is 2 o’clock on the morning of your daughter’s birthday. You take a deep breath, turn to your smartphone, and whisper, “Order the Narnia books, gift wrapped. Deliver at 8 a.m.”
Do not ask the question about what is logistically possible today. Instead, ask when it will be standard procedure to place an order without even touching your smartphone’s screen and receiving the package by drone.
What Possibilities Can You See?
Your allergy medication landing right next to the flowery meadow, or the floor drain arriving at the contractor’s firm right when he needs it?
And since hunger is not really a question about lack of food, but logistics, maybe you see a way to end world hunger.
What Would Make This Kind of Development Possible?
The answer consists of only three words: automated transport management. We know, the phrase is about as fascinating as a slow-running conveyor belt. It also happens that we become so wrapped up in all the technical aspects that we forget to get to the point when we are talking about our cloud-based real-time system. We do not think anyone should have to deal with transport management. Absolutely no one at all. Because the key to exceptional service is a system that does the job for you instead of stealing your valuable time—an automated digital logistics system with superpowers.
LogTrade’s customers and partners are e-commerce companies, suppliers, and carriers. Each one of them knows that its brand is only as strong as its weakest link. That is why they all make such a great effort to show their customers that they care—at each step of the way. Our customers want to be able to grow, and they understand that to know where to put everything requires a digital logistics system that automates the operations.
Our system currently handles more than 3 million transactions per day, in real time. That means that thousands of customers and carriers have been interacting through their ERP or WMS systems via LogTrade. Some of them have been with us since the very beginning, 20 years ago. But what makes us the proudest is that our customers not only see us as a piece of software but as a caring partner that will take them into the future.
Our cloud-based technology is a piece of a bigger puzzle that will bring about a future where delivery and transport processes take the world to a completely new dimension. No one knows what the road to this future will look like, but we keep working tirelessly toward it. We work every single day to develop the technology that will solve the problems of today with a vision of the future. And we do it together with our skillful partners.
Half-full delivery trucks will be a thing of the past. Stock locations can be optimized. Good delivery service will go hand in hand with a more financially and environmentally efficient future. Because that is what will happen as transport management becomes automated to the max: No one will work with it, but everyone will reap its benefits.
