With transport-optimized delivery call-offs for maximum efficiency

Special software for automated material transport planning

Logistics in the automotive industry is highly complex due to precision, timing and variety of variants. Every single part has to be in the right place at exactly the right time to avoid production downtimes. Problems such as incomplete transparency of the supply chain, outdated planning methods and transports which are not fully utilized, present logisticians with major challenges. The implementation of demands-dynamic, integrated planning is essential. More effective transport planning and optimization can significantly improve capacity utilization after the MRP run, plan the inbound supply chain holistically and thus contribute to the agility and efficiency of automotive logistics. 

The answer to the automotive industry’s supply chain challenges

This is how we optimize transport utilization planning for OEMs and suppliers

MRP optimization on FTL/FCL/LTL/Milk­runs

The MRP does not deal with any transport equipment. We plan the delivery schedules or requirements for the optimal transport equipment. Megatrailer, link truck or 20/40ft container? We find the right transport-optimized delivery schedule.

The algorithm prefers certain materials based on inventory levels, capital commitment, supplier capacities and reaches – it fully plans each transport by optimizing the load space. The algorithm takes into account all legal requirements, TCO costs, stackability, delivery conditions, load securing and axle load.

Precise timeslot planning is an essential part of delivery. For this reason, the algorithm takes into account all time components such as delivery days, factory holidays or public holidays as well as the maximum number of trucks per timeslot or dock.

FTL, LTL, Milkrun, X-Dock, FCL or LCL – tariffs are an immense cost driver in logistics. The S2data algorithms select the most cost-effective tariff based on the load and the route network.

The SaaS solution fully automates the delivery with the empty containers control. By coordinating full-load trips with matching empty-load return trips, empty trips can be avoided.

The algorithm plans the required transport based on the material requirements or orders based on the dimensions, weight and stackability of the goods. This includes, among other things, loading regulations, loading/unloading sequence, paired goods, mixed containers with KLTs, axle loads and much more. The planning will be implemented on any transport equipment (megatrailer, 20ft/40ft link truck, gooseneck trailer, etc.).

No full utilization after MRP run
Manual planning or one-dimensional viewing of transports creates empty space. On average, transports are only 65% loaded.
Silo mentality
By connecting logistics, production and the warehouse, the algorithm breaks down silo mentality within companies.

Transport-optimized delivery call-offs for OEM

A well-known vehicle manufacturer transformed its logistics by using the S2data Optimizer, a software that is connected to the ERP system. This solution improved the planning of full truck loads (FTLs) and milk runs, led to significant savings and increased the environmental sustainability of the transports. This change demonstrates the positive influence of innovative software on efficiency and sustainability in logistics. 

Sustainably saving CO2 made easy

Our software makes optimal use of unused truck transport capacity to distribute materials more efficiently, reducing unnecessary trips and therefore CO2 emissions. Through holistic planning that also takes lean management principles into account, we minimize the use of resources in storage and production processes. This strategy not only improves operational efficiency, but also significantly contributes to sustainability and CO2 savings.
