Optimize transport and delivery

How often do you discover at the end of the day that you have reserved too little transport capacity? Even if the number of orders is exactly known and the number of pallets can be predicted, many companies go wrong every day with their transport planning. The number of pallets often appears to be greater than predicted at the end of the day. The process does not ensure that the predicted number of pallets is actually realized.

In many warehouses, at the end of the day, while the trucks are waiting, employees are busy re-stacking pallets and reducing the number. Often that is only half possible. Which pallets do you leave behind? Which customers let you wait a day longer for their orders?

Our solution


IPS not only calculates the optimum stacking pattern of pallets, but also ensures that this stacking pattern is realized. By translating the stacking pattern into clear, visual instructions you can be sure that the pre-calculated number of pallets is not exceeded.

In other words: IPS leads to a predictable and therefore better planable process.

With IPS you realize peace on the expedition floor. You no longer have to wonder if all pallets can be transported. You do not have to call customers with the unpleasant statement that you cannot keep your promises. You also do not have to organize emergency transport or alleviate the suffering by giving a discount. In addition: because IPS guarantees that pallets are loaded to the maximum, your transport costs decrease.

Remember

  • No WMS makes a correct calculation of the transport volume
  • IPS realizes the pre-calculated number of pallets
  • A reliable prediction ensures a better planable process

Your benefits

  • Greater delivery reliability
  • Less cargo space
  • More efficient loading process

Why choose IPS?

Crucial in automated order picking or packaging processes is the question of how products should be stacked on the load carrier or in the box. IPS has the answer. The tool calculates how to optimally position the products and gives instructions to the system, whether it is a robot, palletizer, packaging machine or manual stacking station.

A choice for IPS is more than a choice for an IT system. You choose an optimization process that can intervene in many processes in the warehouse. Each process therefore starts with a situation description and a problem analysis, which makes clear on which points IPS can improve. This is followed by a feasibility study, supplemented with simulations and demonstrations to further elaborate the application possibilities.

IPS is not a stand-alone tool, but an add-on. This means that the tool must be integrated with the system that controls the operation in your warehouse. This can be a warehouse management system (WMS), but also an ERP system or a self-developed system. By using web services, we can easily integrate IPS with every system.
