Transport and logistics
Transport and logistics

Transport and Logistics
Plan transports in the Logistic module to be in control of all deliveries. Freight rates from transport companies can be entered or imported per route and have them accrued if required.

Create logistic documents like the Bill of lading or the Certificate of Origin yourself using the User Document Generator. All generated documents are automatically stored on the relevant transport so never lose a document again!

Processing weight differences, re-routing of transports, trans-shipments, and follow up transports are all part of the standard solution. The commodities can be moved palletized, containerized, bulk or in any other way.

Inventory and batch analysis
Next to the direct deliveries from supplier directly to the customer, the product can also be moved to inventory. Stock locations can be registered as sites containing multiple warehouses in which the product is stored. Every delivery can be registered under a separate batch number to have full traceability throughout the delivery chain. Samples can be taken for analysis to ensure that the delivered product has the correct specifications. Automated transports between legal entities streamline the intercompany process and diminish user errors.
