Need Real-Time Central Visibility of your Logistics?

Need Real-Time Central Visibility of your Logistics?

Fastest, most cost-effective way to get accurate, trusted reporting in one place.

Solution: FLOW
Division: Forte Data Solutions

“Our logistics department partnered with FLOW to create a central hub where load progress is available to both our end clients and transporters. Our expeditors no longer need to call transporters for updates and can only refer back to the FLOW portal.”

Saving time, creating visibility
and transparency for all parties
within the value chain.”

Hennie Longland / Logistics Manager

CLIENT QUICK FACTS

In 2020, PepsiCo acquired Pioneer Foods, a leading food, and beverage company in South Africa, adding its robust, well-known brands including Weet-Bix, Bokomo, and Ceres to PepsiCo’s portfolio. The Pioneer Foods acquisition is key to PepsiCo’s growth strategy across the entire African continent.

CHALLENGES

PepsiCo’s primary transport division requires a central platform to display its logistical planning for each respective transporter and the ability to share this real-time load allocation to the respective transporters and relevant clients or senders/receivers of the cargo.

SOLUTIONS

The FLOW platform creates the ability to latch and sync data straight from each respective transporters’ transport management software (TMS), excel sheet, or option for transporters to do a direct capture of the required information within the platform. The security and integrity of data is a crucial cornerstone of this project. FLOW platform extracts the required data from each transporter TMS of a sheet of information via a sync application into a central portal view (cloud platform).

OUTCOME

Consolidation of PepsiCo’s primary transporter division’s multiple SharePoint planning sheets across multiple sites into one central web-based portal login view for internal planning visibility.

The ability to sync relevant track & trace + operational load information from around 40 different transporters with multiple methods – hence not forcing transporters to adopt new workflow methods. Most transporters can merely keep updating their internal transport applications and in the process-relevant data, updates will be passed to PepsiCo.

OUR PRODUCT

The following features are available on the FLOW platform:

FLOW Connect
A cutting-edge, cloud-based integration platform that provides multiple adaptors for integration between server-based and web-based applications, one to one or multiple to one integrations. It moves data across an enterprise seamlessly, connecting all role players.

FLOW Visibility
A powerful communications portal that latches onto existing applications and transfers data for a web-based internal dashboard or external client-facing portal view.

ABOUT US

Forte Data Solutions provides integration platform-as-a-service, or iPaaS – via its cloud-based platform FLOW that enables users to connect applications regardless of whether they’re on-premise or in the cloud without having to add layers to their infrastructure

LOGISTICS SECTOR ADOPTS PAPERLESS PROCESSES

Logistics Sector Adopts Paperless Processes

In a highly competitive market, producing an optimal delivery route, managing staff and keeping in close touch with clients are essential in maximizing customer service performance and driving down costs.

According to Renko Bergh, COO of the Forte Group, the challenge lies in streamlining distribution operations but also having lies in the ability to process the support required documentation as soon as the delivery is complete.“At Forte, we address this need with FLOW Mobility for the logistics and warehouse industry. This custom forms application takes one client to the next step of visibility,” he explains.

Replacing the pre-printed delivery note documentation with an electronic version (E-POD) is the first step, but then also sending a digital version of your client’s documents for a true combined electronic POD with no need to print and sign, is what is really required.

Improved visibility with immediate availability of documents, says Bergh, reduces invoice disputes through better tracking and recording of deliveries, while increasing service performance through improved workforce utilization and optimal service level compliance. “It also reduces creates an immediate notification and prompts for the lost or damaged stock from collections not recorded and failed deliveries, which is a very costly process to manage reactively .”

Bergh says that the world of service delivery within the logistics industry is evolving rapidly and yesterday’s best practices are barely enough to satisfy today’s increasingly demanding customer expectations – let alone establish the foundation for sustained service excellence in the years to come.

“Logistics operators need to find innovative ways to respond to market trends. One such way is the ability to improve workforce productivity and utilization with paperless submissions of daily work activity,” he says. “Transferring traditional paper-based activities to the use of an APP on a mobile or device, provides not only timesaving and real-time availability, but also creates a culture of digitization and upskilling of all mobile workforce which is the kingpin members in the actual execution – like truck drivers, forklift operators, warehouse inbound and outbound controllers and many more.”

He says many examples of digital forms can already be seen in use with broad industry adoption like Incident reporting, inspection sheets, handover sheets, electronic delivery notes, claim notices or reporting, or even Covid-19 daily check-forms. “Operators want the freedom to create their own forms with software partner customizations or specification processes, hence why we created FLOW Mobility to be completely self-maintainable by our clients.”
