What is the significance of technologies such as AI and machine learning in logistics? How can sustainable logistics work? And how can a successful business transformation be achieved with SAP S4/HANA? We face these and other questions every day – in the coming months, we want to share the answers with you! We will start with the topic of Yard Management. Over the next few weeks, we will look at the challenges that modern yard management entails and give you an overview of how you can make your site logistics future-proof.
We Are Pioneers in Yard Management
For more than 10 years, we have been delivering customized software solutions in the field of yard management. In the beginning, we focused on the processing of incoming and outgoing truck transports, but today’s implementation projects revolve around cross-modal processing of cargo as well as loading and transport means. We consider yard processes not only integrated with upstream and downstream steps, but also from the perspective of creating transparency and fostering collaboration with supply chain partners.
The big challenge here is that no two sites are physically alike. Therefore, a high degree of configurability and flexibility is required, both in the mapping of process flows and in the maintenance of master data.
In many cases, the digitization of site logistics processes forms the necessary foundation for extensive automation measures that ensure leaner processes and cost savings in day-to-day operations. Contactless yard management, for example, is geared toward completely paperless yard processing controlled via mobile devices.
In addition to software, our portfolio for site logistics also includes hardware. Here, for example, self-service terminals, OCR cameras or smart loading point sensors are ideal for stabilizing processes and shortening handling times.
We, too, are excited about what the future has in store for us.
That’s why our Yard team is already looking at connecting more hardware as well as use cases for AI and machine learning.
We make your warehouse and transport logistics future-proof with SAP S/4HANA.
Based on our profound industry know-how, we create transparent, maintenance-friendly end-2-end solutions with our proprietary developments and accompany you as a reliable, strategic partner into the future of warehousing. In practice, this means that we also maintain your warehouse solution beyond the go-live – and not only within the scope of possible support, but also so that your SAP S/4HANA EWM solution can withstand the changing market requirements through continuous improvement and flexibilization.
To this end, we invest around 30 percent of our revenue in research and development every year. This means that our customers are already benefiting from the latest technologies such as just-in-time or cloud-based applications. Our proprietary solutions close gaps in the SAP portfolio and can be individually tailored to our customers’ requirements. The combination of our own innovations and many years of expertise makes us the perfect partner for your SAP EWM project. In the process, we already determine in preliminary studies which deployment is the right one for you and, above all, the one that is future-proof.
Warehouse logistics has many interfaces with production, quality management and transport logistics
We understand the importance of each sub-area and develop our EWM solutions without losing sight of the overall process.
Transportation management – or rather active transportation control – is also a central part of the logistics process chain for us. We recognize the potential that can be leveraged from the combination of transport, warehouse and site logistics. The issue of transportation costs in particular plays a decisive role in logistics today and will become even more important in the future. Thanks to our comprehensive expertise in freight costs, freight cost accounting, transport allocation and dispute management, we can optimize your cost drivers in a highly focused manner. At leogistics, we follow the motto ” Consult first, sell later”. Working together with you, we analyze your processes and then find out which is the best solution for your needs.
But our work doesn’t just extend from tender to go-live – we see ourselves as a strategic partner to our customers, providing honest and sustainable advice at eye level and helping you to make your transport processes fit for the future. This applies both to the saving of resources and thus the reduction of CO2 emissions, as well as with regard to your system architecture: Through the merger of leogistics and cbs, our parent company and provider of premium consulting for successful business transformation with SAP S4/HANA, you benefit from the fact that we co-advise integrative modules such as SD or MM right into FI/CO and offer you solutions from a single source.
