Automation container road transport

Our software for container road transport supports all activities within your entire logistics process, from order entry and planning to invoicing. EDI link-ups, such as with HCN Road from Portbase, provide a greater increase in handling speed and an enrichment of existing container data. The extensive automation of both internal processes and external connections makes it possible to optimise your planning and improve the performance of your truck fleet.

Real-time insight into progress transport

As a road haulier, you want to be able to monitor transports in real time and adjust the planning accordingly. Furthermore, customers continuously expect data provision and status updates. Our truck app is equipped with standard time stamps and ensures that the various loading and unloading moments and other progress milestones are automatically registered. Additional information, such as the weight of the load, the seal number of the containers and such, is automatically uploaded via the app and linked to the transport order in the central system. As a result, administrative actions are minimised.
