4 INTERACTIVE SESSIONS:
and modern TMS
We've listened to your feedback - and organised an interactive 'TMS insights' series around Real-time visibility and modern TMS.
Main goal? To learn and share experiences. The world of transportation has become a game of exceptions and requires different 'modus operandi'.
Discover the line-up below.
1. Virtual roundtable: Real-time visibility, check. What’s next?
Real-time visibility has been a trending topic - but how are you using it? What’s your end goal? What challenges do you face, and what opportunities do you see to optimise this technology? What is the carrier’s perspective on sharing data? And, if there is a difference in perspective, how do you mitigate these differences?
In an hour-long roundtable session, we addressed these timely, sometimes tricky questions.
And what about the carrier’s perspective? Good of you to ask: we also invited Jens Sode, COO, Girteka Logistics, Europes biggest trucking company, to give his perspective on shipper/carrier collaboration.
The roundtable was co-hosted together with project44, whose director of strategic accounts, Michel Stekelenburg, joined us.
You'll find the key takeaways here soon.
2. Successfully embed real-time visibility into your modern TMS
Technology in logistics is about making people’s lives easier, it’s about making them excel at what they do. And real-time visibility does exactly that. It’s also a great example of how data can fuel these technologies.
In this session, we gave some real-life, up close and personal examples of how real-time visibility paired with a modern TMS helps you win in the logistics ‘game of exceptions’. No fancy PowerPoint slides aimed to impress (or wow), just the real stuff -- a frank and open conversation to share knowledge by industry professionals. We covered topics such as visibility-driven workflows, alerts, SKU visibility and automated milestone management.
3. No more trucks queueing at your warehouse - Dynamic Time Slot Booking
Remove friction, frustration and end headaches for drivers and warehouse workers while optimizing your yard and warehouse operations. Dynamic time slot booking is the digital fairy godmother of warehouse managers. But if your driver arrives after his scheduled time of midnight, his truck doesn’t turn into a pumpkin. Rather, his slot is switched with another driver who’s arrived early and poof, everyone lives happily ever after.
This session was co-hosted with project44, where Mads Porsborg, Senior Solutions Engineer, presented dynamic Time Slot Booking in a hands-on demo. (He’s somewhat of a prince charming as well).
4. Panel discussion: where is the market heading
June 29th - 10AM
First Covid and trade wars, then the Suez Canal. One thing these external disruptions emphasized, is that supply chains are the driving force of businesses and economies.
This panel discussion addresses how increasing complexity and exceptions will impact logistics in the years to come, and how technology will drastically transform the role that humans play in supply chains.
