The costs and challenges for those who
run transport operations continue to increase. The ability to run a transport operation
efficiently and effectively can no longer be left to chance.
TransLogix transport solutions are designed to maximize
operational efficiencies and minimize costs ,
streamlining processes and providing a competitive advantage
to help your business grow.
Operations is the core of the Transport Management System
(TMS), providing complete control of daily transport functions.
- Jobs are entered into the system once, and automatically
allocated a unique booking number. Any user can then manage and
track jobs in real time from the initial quotation, through
confirmation and invoicing via the transport diaries.
- Run sheets and operations diaries can be tailor-made to suit
your particular business. Individual users and roles can create
their own diary formats.
- The system generates hundred of reports including drivers' job
sheets, manifests, POD's, run sheets, and subcontractors payment
The Transport Management System (TMS) is completely integrated,
which means data is entered once and instantly available in all
modules throughout the system.
- Once a job has been priced it can be invoiced. Often this will
occur once the POD is received. Alternatively jobs can be
consolidated to produce a single invoice for a customer.
- Invoices can be formatted to your specification and printed on
plain, headed or pre-printed paper.
- The systems links all relevant data and documents so that you
can easily navigate between jobs, consignment notes, invoices and
payments, making it quick and easy to respond to customer
Vehicle and Job Profitability
The ability to easily identify profitable and unprofitable
vehicles, routes, customers etc is a major benefit of the
- Comprehensive reports on the profitability of each and every
vehicle or vehicle group.
- Track revenues, costs and profits down to a per kilometre or
per hour level
- Integration across the TMS ensures that vehicle costs,
such as repair and maintenance activities are availble in real time
as soon as an invoice is entered in the purchase ledger or a job
completed in the workshop module.
- The power to identify the profitability of every activity is
enabled by automatically apportioning the standard costs
associated with equipment and labour to each completed
task, providing profitability per consignment, per lane, per
truck, per customer and so forth.
The complexities of multi-legging, where several operations are
required to complete a single job, are managed ins a straight
forward way. A master job is created with
mulitple individual movementscatering for
mulitple depots, drivers and vehicles. Common operational
activities can be generated automatically.
Assign jobs to a manifest based on lanes or routes, use the
"drag & drop" feature or let the scheduling module optimise
& automate it for you. Print manifests
for vehicles, including a trailer-loading sheet, at anytime.
Attach costs to manifests, including nominal costs, to
provide accurate profitability before you dispatch the
TransLogix Transfer with EDI
Many of TransLogix's customers are now approached by their
customers to set up Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), allowing
them to link directly into the transport company's software system
to place orders or check on the status of a job. All areas of the
TMS can be linked to the customers' systems through a tailor-made
solution to meet the needs.
The system automatically calculates when and how much a
contractor should be paid and then generates the contractor payment
advice. There is no need for the sub-contractor to invoice your
company. It manages deductions (i.e. fuel and insurance),
provides reporting and ensures that each job is only paid once. The
end result can be the production of a Recipient Created Tax Invoice
(RCTI) or a simple reconciliation process for a subcontractor
invoice you receive.
