leogistics expands its logistics platform myleo / dsc with the smart container management solution myleo / empties and enables seamless tracking of loading equipment

Hamburg, June 7th 2021 – Put an end to shrinkage! The new myleo / empties module of the myleo / dsc logistics platform now ensures that containers, empty and loaned goods are always available in the right place at the right time and are lost less frequently. As a digital loading equipment management system, it offers the possibility of identifying containers in real time, centrally monitoring the daily entries and exits of all containers in the cycle, and controlling inventories. In this way, the solution minimizes search efforts, provides maximum transparency and saves costs by avoiding unnecessary transports. The familiar clear user interface of myleo / dsc additionally reduces workloads with mobile apps.

The myleo / dsc developed by leogistics GmbH as an end-2-end logistics and supply chain execution platform aims to connect business partners and sustainably optimize operational logistics processes. Circulation and container management processes are of particular importance here, and are now fully supported in myleo / dsc. The new myleo / empties module is 100 percent integrated into the Real Time Tracking of myleo / dsc and can be combined with SAP S/4HANASAP TM and other transport management systems. Bookings can therefore be made on the basis of SAP TM or manually in myleo / dsc. Modern API as well as apps are available for this purpose.

“myleo / dsc is one of the fastest growing logistics solutions in Europe – not only in terms of user numbers, but also in terms of the range of functions. myleo / empties digitalizes the complete container management and maps load carriers in connection with logistics and business processes, even when they are empty. As a result, we now offer companies an alternative to analog, error-prone solutions. With our integrated approach, we are closing another important gap to a holistic supply chain execution platform,” says André Käber, CEO leogistics GmbH.

myleo / empties: Complete overview of container cycles with all supply chain partners

The booking overview is the central user interface in myleo / empties. All current container bookings as well as all histories can be viewed here. This makes it possible to track container flows retrospectively in the event of shrinkage or liability issues.

The core of the application, in addition to account management, flexible booking rules and alert management, is the web-based collaboration of all process participants. This enables simple, event-based reconciliation of all account movements, balances, etc. Business partners have the option of accessing the cloud-based myleo / dsc via user accounts and jointly ensuring optimized utilization and distribution of small and large load carriers such as pallets or skeleton containers as well as self-configured containers or loaned goods. In this way, discrepancies such as overstocks are quickly detected in the process and can be easily remedied accordingly.

Container management is controlled via individual container accounts. Each actor is assigned a role-related account in order to be able to allocate bookings in a classified manner. The individually created loading equipment accounts can be viewed in an overview. For validation purposes, either account statements can be sent to the partners in the container cycle at regular intervals or the partners can be granted access to the portal.

The myleo / dsc stands for intuitive operation with the help of smart apps

Container arrivals and departures are recorded directly at the point of origin via the myleo / dsc mobile app. In this way, the system enables continuous control without media discontinuities. Analog pallet slips are replaced by digital ones – the susceptibility to errors is noticeably reduced and incorrect deliveries can already be detected when they are recorded at the loading ramp. Staff can also make individual corrections in the event of damage or changes in quantity. In addition, the pre-booking of container movements can be linked to planned values from the order data of the upstream systems and the input effort can be reduced.

Intelligent container management for the logistics requirements of the future

The next development stages will also support IoT tracking scenarios and yard management with completely paperless yard and factory processing. Expensive load carriers such as entire containers can then be clearly identified and tracked using auto-ID technologies such as RFID or BLE, making ID-based inventory management possible. Finally, planning and forecasting processes as well as procurement processes will also be available.
