Supply chain execution

Transport management and freight cost processing can be optimized with ASSIST4. These functions, together with warehouse management, are the core of supply chain execution.

The transport service provider links in ASSIST4 let you take advantage of all the cost benefits your transport partners offer: ASSIST4 automatically ensures that labels, including barcodes, are printed correctly. Manifests and loading lists are also auto-generated and transmitted electronically at pre-defined times. It’s even possible to automate the issuance of transport orders.

Shipping as a cost factor

A study conducted by TU Berlin entitled “Trends and Strategies in Logistics” finds that businesses in the industrial sector were spending 7 percent of their annual revenues on logistics. In the commercial sector, the share is nearly 16 percent.

Meanwhile, shipping accounts for most of the overall costs in the supply chain – 31 percent in the commercial sector, for example. Often, it is these very logistics processes that still harbor a great potential for savings. Consolidating loads, bundling consignments, and optimizing the selection of the forwarder alone can lower freight costs by up to 10 percent. 

Automated invoice auditing

ASSIST4 lets you standardize and automate all the business transactions that relate to preparing and booking transport, and optimizing and billing freight costs. Integrated quote management makes it possible to compare all the different freight rates of your carriers. ASSIST4 uses these quotes to calculate the correct freight costs before you issue the transport orders and afterward provide the reference values for automated software-based invoice auditing.
