Freight forwarders

Cadis Software used by Freight Forwarders

How cadis® can support last mile delivery

All kinds of vehicles, from vans to heavy trucks, can be used for last mile distribution. Several vehicle attributes and restrictions at the shipper or consignee address need to be taken into account when scheduling:
  • opening hours
  • lifting platform
  • dangerous goods equipment
  • possibility of transporting long goods
  • transport of both small shipments and shipments weighing several tons
cadis® TMS for Freight Forwarders excels at this challenge as the route planning algorithm in combination with a flexible rule engine calculates the perfect route for all available vehicles in just a few minutes.

cadis® will help drivers on the road

With the intuitive cadis® APP, drivers are supported when loading at the depot and processing their tours. At each tour stop, the drivers receive all the information they need via the app. The consignee can confirm receipt of the consignment and the exchange of the load carriers with a digital signature. Any damage is documented on site using the photo function and can be viewed in the shipment history.

Use cadis® for Yard Management

Large transshipment depots with many gates and waiting areas cannot be handled without yard management software. The cadis® Yard Manager digitizes movements of trailers and swap bodies on the yard of transshipment warehouses. The cross dock workers, the yard dispatcher and the drivers of the shunting vehicles are networked via cadis®. They exchange the information required for their work without any language barriers and without the stress of radio communication or the inefficiency of paper slips. Low gate occupancy times and unprecedented visibility can be achieved through the real-time control of transfer and shunting vehicles. The clear display of all yard processes increases process quality and reduces the risk of loading errors.

cadis® Master Pallet for grouping shipments

If goods are sent by general cargo over long distances, several depots are involved. To avoid having to scan all packages individually for each logistics process, cadis® can use its Master Pallet function to group them on the depot or consignee level. When the last depot is reached the master pallet can be ungrouped. In case of a master pallet that is consolidated for a consignee, it can even be used all the way to the delivery, thus saving a lot of time and increasing productivity.

How cadis® can help with package information

In a cross dock or any logistics area workers are regularly confronted with recurring questions about packages or shipments. Questions like “What exactly is this? And why is it here? Where does it belong? Are there handling instructions?” come up regularly during the loading and unloading process as well as while walking the floor of a logistics platform. The Infoscan function of the cadis® TMS software instantly provides answers these questions on your mobile device with just one barcode scan.
