Bell manages transportation equipment comprehensively with EURO-LOG's Container Management
From now on, Bell, the Swiss producer of meat products, will manage load carriers and loading equipment with EURO-LOG's Container Management
The advantage of EURO-LOG's solution lies in the flexible integration of existing internal and external portals and applications. For example, the company's own SAP system and the portals of individual major customers are linked so that Container Management occurs comprehensively and uniformly via a single system. Since Bell cooperates with various pooling providers, these data are also integrated into the Container Management System. From now on, the various container ownership relationships will be represented centrally. Standards such as GS1 barcodes can also be used with the software solution.
Container Management not only represents all loading equipment movements and inventories but also links the transportation equipment management systems of individual Bell customers. Innovative agent technology permits flexible integration and integrates the bookings from the portals seamlessly into the Bell system. Thanks to a flexible, configurable role concept, all partners have access to the data relevant for them. The management of the cross-company load carrier network is automated with the help of EURO-LOG's Container Management System. The Event Management provides notifications of discrepancies, such as discrepant quantities received by the customer or violation of stock limits. In future, manual effort, e.g. for data entry, will be significantly reduced.
