Trade and distribution

Real-time control in procurement and distribution

Sector: retail / distribution

The secure availability of goods is a particular challenge in trade logistics. This calls firstly for smooth and problem-free goods procurement processes from ordering right through to delivery at the unloading bay and secondly for a well-structured and flexibly organised transport network on the distribution side, e.g. for supplies to subsidiaries. Added to this there is the growing challenge posed by the increase in online trade of providing high quality transport services right through to the end customer and thereby setting you apart from the competition with the additional services offered.

Another point which is more strongly focused on as a result of increasing cost awareness is the monitoring of loading equipment for supplies to subsidiaries. Which subsidiary has how many loading units and where are the special containers which are urgently needed? If there is no possibility of cross-company monitoring, high reinvestment costs are quickly incurred because of disappearing and lost containers.

With the following solutions from EURO-LOG you have control over these tasks and can set up your logistics to be transparent, secure and cost-effective.
