Dynamic graphic planning’s in Gantt diagram

One of the major competitive advantages that E-TMS offers is the possibility to assign and unassign loads to vehicles or trailers in a dynamic and visual way with “drag & drop”. This technology facilitates the work of transport agents especially in companies of Full Load, cargo assembly or agencies, working in a friendly and easy environment.

By moving the resource or orders bar we will be able to easily complete our planning with either daily or for pre-planned assignments.

The application will take into account the driving time done by the driver. Information given to us threw the on-board computer of some of the existing suppliers

The closest resources will be taken into account for evaluation of the assignment to avoid as much as possible having void kilometres.

Recon ducting of unavailable resources (unavailability due to holidays, illness, own days etc.), is contemplated as well as possible breakdowns or stays in the workshop for review of the vehicles.

Also these bars will be an indicator of the percentage of realization of the service, as well as an analysis of the delivery or possible delay of said service, enabling to take the necessary corrective actions if needed.

Assignment of resources via multi-screen management (2 or 3). The operators can work with two real life screens and therefore facilitating planning and assigning.

Control of structural costs

Imported from accounting, they will be a part of the three global costs (together with fleet expenses and direct costs) that will be deducted at each of the expeditions or trips to obtain the most adjusted ratios of yield per service.

In accounting we will define the percentage of use of the structural costs.

Social Conversation Tool

An internal and external social conversation tool is now available on the e-TMS, which is now the first on the market with this functionality.
Based on social media features you will be able to centralize all internal (your team) and external (customers-providers) conversations in an unique information hub: e-TMS
