TRANSPORTATION & LOGISTICS

Route management

Optimising your fleet operations is a great way to reduce costs. With fluctuating gas prices and demanding customers, it's important to ensure that your drivers and route management processes are as efficient as possible. With Apprise® ERP, you get the in-depth tools you need to successfully navigate all your route management tasks.

We make it easy to automate and optimise route scheduling and fleet delivery. Apprise ERP contains industry specific tools to help you manage fuel costs and driver efficiency while providing superior service to your customers. Apprise ERP route management is comprised of routes (lorry routes), waves (a group of routes) and stops (stops along the route). Your team can choose from fixed or variable routes. Fixed route tools enable you to define workflows for specific days of the week, or define tasks based on your own business rules or customer criteria. Variable route tools provide maximum flexibility, enabling you to build stops based on daily order demands, rather than fixed criteria.

Our route management tools help you manage picking, packing, reverse-order loading, and fuel-efficient delivery of products to all your customers. These tools also help you track all pick demands for customers with routes or stops for a given date, and also provides a total number of stops for the selected route based on the date provided. And since route management is integrated directly into Apprise ERP, information automatically flows throughout the application — for pick demand creation and other tasks — to maximise enterprise visibility and efficiency.

Dynamic routeing

Dynamic routeing requirements are on the rise from a growing number of mass merchant retailers. While these compliance requirements help retailers reduce replenishment times and save on transportation costs, they also result in increased complexity for consumer goods companies. Apprise ERP is built to help you simplify dynamic routeing compliance through sophisticated tools and best practices that help you attain perfect order execution, while avoiding invoice deductions.

Whether your trading partners require order, request for routeing instruction and routeing instruction EDIFACT transactions, or portal-based processes, Apprise ERP can help. Our focus on consumer goods means we have the expertise to handle current and emerging compliance issues. And our electronic data interchange protocols are proven to automate and standardise your processes to ensure your shipments are accurate and on time.

Our compliance tools are integrated into Apprise ERP. So you get real-time updates and system-wide visibility to help you stay on top of changing conditions. Apprise ERP can also help you maximise workflow automation, collaboration across your business, and enterprise visibility. So you can speed product flow from your factories to the warehouse and onto retailer shelves.

Bills of lading & packing slips

Bills of lading (BOLs) play an important role in the shipping process. BOLs traditionally present the type and quantity of goods being carried, the intended destination, and confirmation of receipt. More recently, BOLs have also served to schedule and record shipments, and provide data for EDI transactions. Consumer goods companies count on Apprise ERP to help streamline the bill of lading process.

With Apprise ERP, your company can improve shipment tracking and management with our VICS compliant bill of lading and packing slip tools. Our ERP software enables you to build efficient lorry loads based on the dimensional requirements of products through our planned BOLs. And we make it easy to manage bills of lading, including BOL processing, completion, modification and more.

Apprise ERP enables you to filter BOLs by customer, purchase order number, order number, BOL closed dates and BOL number. Detailed reports that include BOL number, customer name and code, product code, unit price, order quantity and more, can easily be viewed and printed. And user-friendly modification tools help you move BOLs from a master bill of lading to an existing or new bill of lading.

Our integrated solution and industry expertise combine to give you the lowest total cost of ownership and a fast ROI.
