Transport and Logistics operations have depot
requirements that range from simple to complex and TransLogix has
the right solutions to cope with the infite scenarios that
customers may require.
TransLogix Depot Operation solutions are integrated with the
Transport Management Solution and can be deployed as a stand alone
or enterprise wide system. The key benefits of deploying an
integrated transport solution with Depot capability is that the
same information is shared across the business and that
transport and depot operations are managed as a seamless
business process. This reduces admistrative costs, increases
accuracy, reduces errors and enables superior customer service. It
also helps to ensure that all costs associated with a customer's
requirement are captured and invoiced.

Depot Scanning and Item Level Tracking
TransLogix have developed a sophisticated solution to track all
freight at the item level as it moves from the collection through
various depots to the end destination. It's designed to reduce
administrative overheads through consolidated updates at higher
levels, but also so that any individual item can be managed and
tracked with a simple scan.
The solution includes easy to use software running on standard
hand held RF devices for depot staff to record all movements in
real time. When a truck arrives at the depot a single scan (or
crossing of a geofence) will update the entire load. Depot staff
can then scan freight in to and out of locations as they pack and
unpack loads. All these movements are recorded in real time with
date stamps which can be used for costing, analysis and
Splitting of consignments over multiple trailers and vehicles is
supported without the need for any back office staff adjusting
consignment details in the computer as each individual item is
tracked independently. Items found in locations they shouldn't are
simply scanned by the operator, updating their actual location and
status. Logic checks on the device ensure that depot staff are
warned or blocked from placing a Perth bound item on a Sydney
bound trailer and prevented from loading and mixing Hazardous
goods that could breach regulations.
This solution captures all the detailed data to enable
organisations to comply with most complex and detailed Customer
SLAs and KPIs.
