McKinsey, PwC, DHL, Accenture, Aberdeen Group, Gartner, WEF, Deloitte, KPMG, Forbes, there are many who have an opinion on how important it is to digitize business processes. Within transport and logistics, an average calculation yields a 35% increase in profits!
Increased Efficiency and Productivity
According to McKinsey, data shows that digital technologies such as automation and fleet management can increase productivity in the transport sector by up to 30%. Automated systems reduce manual tasks, freeing up time and resources that can be focused on more value-added activities. TMS solutions are revolutionizing the transport sector by creating a faster and more accurate shipping process. Automated route planning and load optimization minimize empty runs and reduce transport time. Real-time tracking of shipments allows for precise status updates and faster response to changing conditions. Electronic document management and automated billing eliminate manual tasks, freeing up time and reducing errors. Digital data provides advanced and concrete insights through analyses and reports to identify areas for improvement and optimize work processes.
Improved Customer Experience and Satisfaction
According to a report from PwC, 75% of consumers say they would pay more for services with improved customer service and convenience. Digitalization allows for real-time updates and better tracking options, resulting in increased customer trust and satisfaction.
The increased visibility and tracking options, and thus work transparency, provide customers with real-time information about their shipments, creating trust and reducing uncertainty. Faster and more reliable deliveries are achieved through automated route optimization and precise scheduling. Digital billing and document management ensure a seamless and error-free transaction process. In short, digitalization with TMS results in a more efficient and reliable service that better meets the needs of the customer, creating an improved customer experience and increasing satisfaction, and above all, building a closer bond with the customer.
Optimized Route Planning and Traffic Management
A study conducted by DHL shows that the use of advanced route optimization can reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 20%. Advanced logistics systems enable companies to dynamically respond to traffic and weather conditions, ensuring a more efficient and environmentally friendly operation. Advanced algorithms analyze data in real-time to identify the most efficient route, avoid traffic, and minimize transport time. This reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, benefiting both the environment and the company’s costs. Additionally, it leads to faster delivery times and increased reliability, strengthening customer satisfaction. Precise route management also provides flexibility to accommodate changing conditions and needs. Overall, digitalization with TMS and optimized route planning brings significant benefits for both sustainability and operational efficiency.
Reduced Costs and Increased Profitability
According to an analysis by Accenture, digitization can lead to cost savings of up to 15% in the transportation sector. Automation of business processes and optimization of resource allocation contribute to a more cost-effective operation.
Sharp optimized route planning and load optimization minimize unnecessary trips and fuel consumption. Digital billing and document management eliminate manual tasks, freeing up resources and reducing errors. Real-time data and advanced analytics enable precise monitoring of resource utilization and identification of inefficiencies. This leads to a reduction in operating costs and improves capacity utilization. Increased efficiency and reliability benefit customer satisfaction, which can lead to repeat business and positive reviews.
Reduced Need for Manual Labor
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the transportation sector is among the industries with a high risk of manual labor and injuries. Digitalization can help automate many of these tasks and improve the working environment.
Improved Inventory Management and Inventory Optimization
A report from the Aberdeen Group shows that companies with digitized inventory management can expect a 20% increase in the accuracy of inventory assessments. Additionally, digitalization reduces losses and waste.
