Bonn, 06. Mai 2020. In times like these, nothing in logistics works without intelligent IT. Transparency and rapid action are a must, carriers are no longer available as usual. This is where IT service providers with experience and know-how are in demand, when it comes to developing and implementing suitable tools. They must know what is important.

6 million shipments per month. Live updates every 15 minutes. Several hundred users. And all this clearly arranged in real-time with central key figures on shipment volumes and sales figures. This is the short formula of one of the tailor-made solutions that BusinessCode has developed for an international logistics company.

Currently, the clear output of always up-to-date data is indispensable, especially for logistics, as in the project outlined above. And this task is performed by the dashboard developed by BusinessCode. Due to the current disruption to air traffic, there are numerous delays in international and national parcel shipments. On the one hand, these delays affect delivery dates, but also clearly have an impact on costs. “Therefore it is important to have an overview of all relevant data and to do so as clearly as possible”, explains Martin Schulze, CEO at BusinessCode.

The core of the application is a detailed automated analysis of the transport process of the packages. Key figures are calculated, for example for punctuality, from which scorecards and analysis components for several hundred users are then filled. All aspects of operational management are supported, from the optimization of courier processes to the continuous improvement process in the transport chain. With an “Outstanding Report”, an exact view of the “transport pipeline” is available at any time. In this way, any problems that arise can be identified and solved at an early stage. And it is precisely this prompt availability of information that is currently the key factor of the software. Every event – where is the package? Which event is currently happening – has an influence on the status of the shipment. All events flow continuously into the system and are visible within a short time.

The dashboard developed by BusinessCode has the advantage that all changes, bottlenecks and delays can be tracked immediately and clearly. Fast action becomes possible.

Everything in view – through a performance management system that is impressive.
