KNOW YOUR CARGO’S EVERY MOVE - EVERY MINUTE - SHIP TO SHORE

A Cloud Based Logistics Management and Tracking System for the Bulk Handling Industry

Want to make monitoring the journey, from source to your client, of the 1,000’s of tonnes of cargo you constantly have ‘on the move’ more accurate, transparent and labour saving?

If a significant section of your business involves the picking up, storage and delivery of Fertilisers Ash, Grains, Aggregates etc.... then a short meeting with us could be of considerable value. 

We are a team of experienced software developers based in Fitzroy, Melbourne and have been focusing on this market sector for about 12 months. We discovered to our surprise that a number of  highly successful contactors still use excel spread sheets alone, to manage these activities.  Excel is an excellent software pacakge , but does not allow proper measuring and reporting facilities.

Considering that the value of a truck and dog load of fertiliser,  is between $70,000.00 - $80,000, the importance of accurate monitoring, reporting, risk assessment and protection should be a critical part of your standard processes.

 

Whether arrivng from a quarry, ship or rail yard and going to storage, factory or customer, control of shrinkage, waste, contamination, location and optimum stock levels would be high in your priorities. We believe being able to access all of this information instantly and reporting online 24/7, would be of huge benefit to your business.

Giving the right reports to the right people improves control, reduces risk and costs while increasing your effectiveness to manage your team and your business.

Our experience in understanding the problems and recommending the right solutions matched with your expertise  enables us to jointly tailor your solution quickly and effectively.

 

NO MORE OF THE EXCEL SPREADSHEET APPROACH OF SIMPLE QUANTITY MONITORING.  WE MOVE YOU INTO THE CLOUD AND GIVE YOU DRIVER DOCKET BASED SOLUTIONS THAT SUPPORT HIGHLY DETAILED REPORTING AND THE INHERANT COST SAVINGS. 

Our software supports you to get the job done efficiently, gives you greater control and meaningful customised reporting.  It is also an essential tool in the proof of compliance with ‘Chain of Responsibility’  legislation.
