Challenges

Integration

ILTRANS Deutschland GmbH needs a system which allows the automatic creation of transport and forwarding orders. It should provide access to transport-related data to employees from different departments of the company. The customer wants automatic communication with its customers via a dedicated module. It also needs a tool to facilitate contract fleet management and minimise downtime. The program should have an intuitive interface that will ensure smooth implementation in the company’s new domestic and foreign branches. Additionally, it must allow for work in home office mode.

Solution

The customer’s solution is fireTMS – a comprehensive program for transport and forwarding, ensuring automation of activities related to planning, execution and settlement of transport. One system can be used by a dozen or so users, and information about loads can be made available to customers in a panel designed for them. The program is integrated with Datev, the company’s accounting system. It is available online and does not require local installation, so it can be used regardless of the place of work.

Selected fireTMS functionalities

fireTMS enables sharing and editing data from transport orders with the company’s customers. Its dedicated panel allows customers to control loads, check realisation statuses and create new loads, which are displayed in the system as ready for dispatch. They can also download documents added to the order and automatically issue invoices. In addition, they can see the position of vehicles that are carrying their loads. The panel provides a transparent transfer of all information related to transport and efficient communication between customers and the company.

FireTMS has a clear and user-friendly interface that enables users to automate shipping and logistics processes. FireTMS system follows the constant changes in the TSL industry. It can be integrated with external IT software and GPS telematics providers. It eases the internal handling of transport orders and ensures fast and efficient work. A dedicated customer panel improves communication between the customer, forwarder, and carrier.
