The solution provides the user with an environment that operates with full access to all end-to-end supply chain and logistics information. Such visibility makes decision making more effective and strategic, since all operational movement is monitored in real time.
Route and Fleet
Route and Fleet Dimensioning
The solution determines the formation of charges and routes simultaneously. This feature allows the ideal dimensioning of the fleet to meet the company's transportation. To create the most optimized shipping schedule, the system analyzes:
Location: customer address, maximum distance between stops and return;
Time: times of receipt and delivery of cargo, time of transit by route (based on road and urban maps) and shipping capacity;
Vehicles: volume, weight, values, service area and delivery capacity;
Shipment: loading capacity by dock, type of packaging and way of loading;
Restrictions: zones and times for the circulation of municipal and state vehicles (castors).
Logistics Cockpit arrangement services determine the best accommodation of the shipping units according to their dimensions of height, length and width, depending on the unloading sequence and always respecting their stacking characteristics. The software collects load data and transport demand, considers operational and extra-operational factors, chooses the most suitable type of fleet for assembly (own vehicles, third-party vehicles or by mixed composition) and presents the three-dimensional load arrangement on the screen. The software provides step-by-step mounting and unloading of the load (single or multiple) through a layer report, a mechanism that reduces execution time by up to 40%.
» Maximizing the use of the vehicle fleet;
» Increase in shipping capacity;
» Reduce cost-freight, avoiding dead freight;
» Three-dimensional visualization of loads on the vehicle;
» Decrease in assembly time and load unloading.
The Logistics Cockpit's load arrangement system always ensures the choice of the best fleet, the maximum space utilization, the smarter route and the increased productivity in the assembly and unloading of the loads.
The solution simulates and defines the ideal ballast for each type of pallet and product.
This feature promotes better cargo planning in vehicles and containers.
In this way, users make better use of their pallets and decrease the number of containers contracted.
The software performs the sequencing of shipments and generates the ideal scheduling for shipment, so that all restrictions and needs defined by the cargo scheduling service, such as the types of merchandise and the vehicles allowed in each dock, are respected.
This feature provides:
» Guarantee of prioritization of customers, increasing the quality of service;
» Decrease of loading teams in case of slack in capacity;
» Increase productivity of assets, such as treadmills and forklifts;
» Drastic reduction of queuing time for loading.
The Logistics Cockpit has a management panel for the user company to control all communication of transport offers to its carriers. The third, in turn, has access to an Internet portal where he finds all the transport requests requested by the shipper. Initially, the solution receives vehicle availability from the carriers by region. With this information and the entire configuration of restrictions and rules of the system, and generated a scheduling of loads with the appropriate carrier and vehicle allocated.
The carrier can be chosen for several criteria, such as better freight value or participation in freight quota. This distribution is presented via the internet to the carrier who can then accept or refuse each charge.
After a second round - in the shape of a reverse auction - to reallocate rejected loads on other carriers, the system completes the process and is ready for execution.

Hire the most efficient transportation service, while ensuring cost reduction and the level of service in your logistics chain.
Based on experience in different scenarios such as the steel industry, electronics, retail, glass and corrugated packaging, concrete and cement, paper among others Neolog offers the service of Efficient Contracting of Freight. This consulting work seeks to identify changes in the freight contracting model that bring financial returns if the company is efficient in managing its logistics operation. A review of the supply and distribution structure and the relationship with its transport resources dictate the course of this analysis.
How it works
Each transport operation, whether of supply or distribution, has its peculiarities. In general line, the analysis of the efficient contracting of freights goes through:
» Survey of freight contracting history: CIF, FOB, modalities, origins and destinations, own and / or third party fleet, special requirements, freight tables and relationship with carriers;
» Design of new contracting models possible for operation;
» Simulation of the impact of these new models on the history of operations;
» Creation of new scenarios and impact assessment;
» Freight quotation process in the proposed new contracting models;
» Implementation of new tables and hiring rules.
Example of results:
» Creation of a new freight contracting model;
» Definition of freight strategies by channels, regions and categories;
» Freight quotation and negotiation with carriers;
» Creation of hybrid model of own and outsourced fleet;
» Quantification of CIF or FOB freight benefits;
» Analysis of the modalities of transport stocking, fractionated, itinerant, courier, express, etc.
Reducing costs is just as important as acting with a high level of efficiency for the logistics and supply chain areas.
Your company can ensure a high level of efficiency in the transportation system by lowering operational and freight costs through logistics optimization. Neolog's Transportation Cost Reduction solution ensures the savings of millions of dollars through optimized scheduling of operations.
How it works
The Logistics Cockpit is used to reduce transportation costs by increasing the efficiency of logistics operations choices. These decisions pass: definition of what modalities and modalities of transport to use; conveyor selection and ideal vehicle type; route tracing and three-dimensional load formatting; loading and unloading docking and synchronization of cross docking and continuous movement operations (truck circuits and reuse). Best of all is that all these decisions occur simultaneously on a lot of transport requests.
To optimize logistics, the Neolog solution considers simultaneously:
» Choice of the best conveyor - The system crosses the regions of attendance with options and freight, and selects the lowest cost conveyor. This process occurs automatically along with the load distribution control between suppliers to maintain a loyal base.
» Product Integrity & Weight Distribution - Ensuring that a shipped product arrives without damage to its destination is essential to avoid replacement costs and a new freight. The system considers physical constraints such as stacking, fragility, weight and dimensions. Based on this information is chosen the actual position of each item in the vehicle, respecting the weight distribution between axles and load balance.
» Transport routes - Going by the shortest route does not always mean freight economy. To choose the best route, it is necessary to consider the order of loading and unloading, product integrity, access restrictions, multi collection, fractionation, etc. When analyzing each of these options, the system creates the route that is more adherent to the demand for transportation.
» Logistics chain - By observing its logistics chain and its transportation demands in an integrated way, the logistics optimization system will present expressive gains for logistics activities that involve: priority of deliveries, recurring orders, recurring destinations, multiple shipments, multiple deliveries, crossdocking and continuous movement with closed and open circuits.
