Challenges

  • Implementation of highly customer- and service-oriented transport logistics
  • Product range requiring three different temperature zones
  • Special logistics requirements due to Switzerland's geographic particularities
  • An average of 30 percent short-notice changes to orders
Solution

  • Comprehensive routing using scheduling software TRAMPAS
  • ERP, telematics and WMS connection
  • Calculation of partition panel position for the different temperature zones of the load area
  • Consideration of customer preferences (dedicated drivers, scheduling requests)
  • Generation of statistics and key figures for continuous optimization


Our flexible load areas become a real asset for transport logistics because Städtler Logistik’s scheduling software automatically takes into account these possibilities and the grouping of goods for different customers on the appropriate special transport equipment.
