Ineffective utilization of transporting vehicles

One of the primary concerns for most of the transporting organizations is a low rate of trips per month for their vehicles. This is due to a lack of route optimization systems and the inability to deploy cargo tracking technology across various locations. Potential logistic companies capable to operate more trips per month are unable to tap the opportunity with old manual processing and legacy logistics software systems.

Business & customer growth

As per a recent survey, 60% of logistics companies find it very difficult to communicate real time info with their customers and maintain relationships. Most companies lack a proper customer relations management platform that offers higher customer visibility which is a key strategy to business and customer growth. Cross border documentation works are reduced considerably after implementing Ripples-FMS.

Lack of analysis & real time info for logistics cost savings

Effective and real time info is key to strategic decisions. Most logistic providers lack effective business analysis tools and reporting dashboards for effective management decision making. Management reports are crucial to tap hidden expenses and potential revenues in the business. 

Ineffective purchase management, control & Theft

Ineffectiveness & revenue leakage in the following areas:

  • Misused consumption of vehicle spare parts
  • Theft of tires and spare parts 
  • Theft of cargo during the journey
  • Poor fuel management
  • Issue of wrong invoices

Empty running of trucks and truck delays

Each empty km run by the truck is an expense for the transporter. Most often trucks need to run empty kilometers as logistic companies are lacking with proper info on goods pending to be transported from its branches to various locations. As per research, truck delays at various points (border clearance, workshops offloading, documentation, etc.) result in a loss of US$ 240 per day.

Lack of alerts, driver assessment & rating

Alerts w.r.t truck license expiry, export permits expiry, vehicle service due, driver license expiry are most often absent in legacy manual and old software systems. Absence of driver performance rating systems to identify problematic and underperforming drivers are often absent which increases average driver expense per month.
