SUCCESS FACTOR IN LOGISTICS: Reliable requirements for loading and unloading

Supply chain efficiency needs valid information where it is needed. The higher the number of requirements and different players involved, the more complicated the logistics processes. 

True and updated information is key to efficiency as it helps to avoid tedious efforts in double-checking and troubleshooting. 

Loady simplifies requirements management

The principle of Loady is smart:

  1. Companies enter the requirements that apply at their sites for loading and unloading products in Loady
  2. They share the relevant information with their business partners (=shippers, customers, carriers) by temporary assignments
  3. Reliable requirements are available for logistics processes 
  4. Comprehensive online views with multilingual functionality are especially helpful to drivers
  5. Assigned business partners are notified of relevant changes, including change tracking possibilities for easier logistics procurement

With Loady all parties win

Shippers and customers benefit from Loady as transportation services become much more reliable and overall logistics process costs decrease. From now on, there is a clear responsibility on requirements’ data management and all logistics operations refer to one source of truth. Companies will be able to diminish their current troubleshooting efforts and idle times at loading and unloading points. Customer Satisfaction will improve and the Customer Service can dedicate itself to value creation instead of trying fruitlessly to collect customers’ requirements data.

Who benefits most:

  • Supply chain planning
  • Site logistics
  • Production
  • Transport planning and management
  • Customer Service
  • Logistics procurement

Carriers need to manage not only the requirements of the ship-from and ship-to parties, but they also need to match their trucks and equipment, correspondingly. With Loady, dispatching and planning will become much easier. Carriers will be able to concentrate on providing reliable transport services instead of losing precious time in managing and double-checking companies’ logistics requirements. The risk of delays and truck rejections decreases enormously. Additionally, the communication of changes and updates with their sub-carriers, truckers, and drivers, will become much easier. 

Who benefits most:

  • Dispatcher
  • Transport planning and management
  • Customer Service 
  • Sales
  • IT (for integration with OBU or ERP)

When it comes to the delivery of goods, truckers and drivers are suffering the consequences of bad communication on requirements among companies and carriers during the hiring or planning phase of transportation service. Wrong preparation, missing equipment, erroneous information on document requirements, reception processes or facilities lead to problems, discussions, and – last but not least – delays and rejections. Especially drivers who don’t speak site-typical languages and are not experts in the products they are delivering, are having a hard time when they are not allowed to access a site, load or unload a product or continue as planned. 
With Loady they will get a comprehensive, multilingual view on the relevant conditions they need to meet and the processes they need to follow.
