Carriers operations involve a lot of logistic and digital processes. Think for instance of setting up TMS-systems, connecting to onboard units, as well as exchanging data between systems and departments. As if that isn’t complex enough, these processes are dynamic and subject to continuous optimisation. The most efficient routes are calculated and the distribution of freight over the fleet’s vehicles is carefully planned. Moreover, a lot of effort and resources go into the management and maintenance of the fleet. Vehicles need to be cleaned both inside and out and any faults or damages should be prevented in order to ensure as little downtime as possible. The wealth of data that the fleet generates can be of tremendous value to carriers. In order for this data to be truely valuable, it should be structured, easily obtained and processed. However, more often than not, this is not the case. Because of all the different systems that are involved in carriers’ operations much of this work still requires a great deal of manual input which leaves (too much) room for error.
Real-time data and insights through API links and automation
By automating and better attuning processes to one another, carriers can greatly reduce the number of operations that require manual input. Not only does this make processes faster, it is also makes them less prone to errors. TRAVIS is a data-driven road service company that acknowledges the importance and value of data. TRAVIS provides you with API links that let you connect various systems to the platform and each other. In addition, we will provide you with tools to further improve your logistic and administrative processes.
