An effectively managed transportation and logistics sector has become extremely important in this rapidly expanding generation. A transport and logistics industry must routinely monitor all of its assets due to the rise of industries and the convergence of the world market. Transportation industries have to manage upcoming bookings, payments, general ledgers, and resources in addition to tracking and planning vehicle maintenance. The fact that some data is frequently manually kept in files makes audits and fixes more challenging due to inaccuracies and time consumption.
To manage all the databases on one platform with all the sections provided, enterprise resource planning software is the key to the management of all the resources. As its name suggests, ERP is a software that plans and provides all the data required for resource planning. To simplify work processes efficiently and effectively, Fleetx has come up with Fleetx Transporter ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning).
Fleetx Transporter ERP can handle all of the above roles while also providing a centralized and integrated solution for controlling and optimizing all areas of logistics and transportation operations. It can help transporters improve efficiency and reduce costs by automating and streamlining processes such as inventory management, order tracking, maintenance, driver salaries, toll charges, fuel charges, etc. Additionally, Fleetx Transporter ERP can provide real-time visibility into logistics and transportation operations, enabling businesses to quickly identify and address any issues that may arise.
As for now, if we keep aside the function of ERP and focus on what problems it actually does solve at the ground level of the transportation industry, we can analyse the importance it holds in making any business efficient. As an example, we all know that the transportation industry has rate charts prepared for all of its vehicles based on a chart that they decide on based on km, trip, load, and so on. Transporters provide Fleet Fare to the consignee and accept the contract based on the rate. Sounds very simple, right? But no, there is a lot more for the transporters to work on than we can actually think of. With all the trips, they have different kinds of vehicles, fleet fares, maintenance dates, service renewal dates, service charges, driver salaries, trip costs, fuel costs, toll charges, etc. After calculating all these expenses, a transporter gets to know the profitability of one driver, one trip, and one vehicle. Thus, managing all the data manually and systematically becomes difficult and inaccurate for the transporters.
ERP can be transporters' savior here, as it can help transporters manage all this data on one platform with all the options and segments available for making the proper database for each and every truck. All the data can be accessed at any time and maintained accurately with the help of ERP. This can help in keeping track of each and every trip with all the expenses included, and without any waste of time, it can generate your profitability, vehicle availability, per-truck profitability, yearly profit, monthly profit, per-trip profit, maintenance schedules, service renewals, etc.
