Efficient loading with inconsoDSM 05 July 2016

In order to efficiently plan and control warehouse and transport activities, European logistics software specialist inconso AG has developed inconsoDSM to ensure coordinated and efficient loading and unloading.

The newly designed solution combines the benefits of an intelligent organisation and information system in one application. inconsoDSM considers shifts as well as plant calendars and differentiates buildings, individual building areas, gates, and ramps, according to their specific properties. Thus, the system allows for the control of loading and unloading processes tailored to the particular capacities and resources – thereby ensuring optimised utilisation.

Parallel to that, the system enables defined users to obtain authorisation for slot booking. Carriers and suppliers are granted access to a web-based platform for simplified booking, cancellation and modification of slots by delivering carriers.

Moreover, regular slots for days or weeks are automatically assigned as fixed placeholders by the system for specific agents. In addition, automatically generated system messages promptly inform the carrier about slot changes made by the loader. The system data is available for statistical analyses, such as comparison statistics for planned slots and actual arrivals.

As an add-on, inconsoDSM can also be integrated into any existing warehouse or yard management system.
