Transport Planning and Operations
Stratums transport planning and operations software holds details of customer addresses, delivery quantities, time windows, vehicle sizes, driver shift details, resource availability and other transportation parameters.
It actively presents the planner with exception processing, feeding the planner with key problems and timed stages of the expected logistics instructions.
This “active” data allows the planner to see a problem with a “logistics” instruction or the running of a vehicle and allows for action to be taken.
The planner can communicate with the vehicle and receive communications that are recorded with the logistics instructions.
This transforms the transport planners role into a pro-active one and creates a “repository” for all the details and actions taken on the logistics.
