Third-party and in-house logistics providers face many different business obstacles, but the challenge of running a supply chain profitably is something they both share.
In today's highly competitive business environment, the pressure on costs is unlikely to diminish. Finance professionals need solutions that ensure their complex warehouse and transport operations are run sustainably and profitably. Often, it is the performance of these absolutely critical operations that makes the difference between profit and loss across the whole business.
Where you need to charge for the logistics services you provide, as in 3PL, CALIDUS Total Logistics provides comprehensive tariff and billing functionality to ensure timely and accurate charging for the services you have provided for each of your customers. In most cases, the collection of data that drives billing for these and other added value services is collected automatically by our systems, and is therefore performed absolutely consistently.
CALIDUS Total Logistics solutions are built to support efficient, transparent and profitable supply chain activities. As well as fine-tuning warehouse and transport operations for maximum efficiency, CALIDUS Total Logistics provides the management information that finance professionals need to make faster, better decisions.
Remove inefficiencies from the supply chain, improve customer service levels and drive your business forward:
Customers are increasingly using our logistics solutions as a managed service from our own data centres. The complete solution (including hardware, infrastructure, devices and ongoing maintenance) becomes a regular predictable operational cost in line with usage, rather than up front capital investment. As a result, you can manage IT resources affordably and strategically, and have cost predictability as the demands of your customers change.
CALIDUS WMS contains all the features you need to serve customers faster, more accurately and at lower cost. We know how important it is for finance managers to know your warehouse is running efficiently and cost-effectively. Our WMS can monitor service levels using pre-defined or bespoke KPIs, allowing you to respond quickly to critical issues and proactively manage labour resources.
