Topic: Logistics

Try our new app — Logistics!

This is a simple logistic solution, which allows you to create or import orders, then distribute them among vehicles in the most rational way and, finally, track routes online as well as generate reports upon their fulfillment.

Logistics consists of two applications — web and mobile.

The web application is for operators (dispatchers). It's available on apps.wialon.com and can be added to your service in the usual manner. Besides, there's a separate point of entry on logistics.wialon.com

Mobile application is an addition to the web application. It's aimed to drivers and couriers. Android (released) and iOS (coming soon) platforms are supported.

"Hello,

We've checked on both platforms and got next results:
iOS - all working properly;
android - the list of orders not loading, passed to the developers.
When the issue will be fixed we'll notify you additionally.
Specify if you have other questions or maybe you have issue with iOS platform (version)?"

Re: Logistics

aahero,

the whole system is just 2 weeks old and was shown at CEBIT first time.
Since this two weeks people are trying and testing in REAL LIFE conditions... so do testing by yourself, write error messages to support, give it a day and have please in mind that bug fixing (sending new apps to google and appl) also need some time!

So if you want fast results --> help with debugging and together we get the perfect App / Logistic system!

Wolf.

Re: Logistics

Hello Gurtam

Here are some client’s recommendations for improving Wialon Logistics

1. Is it drop or pickup – that would clarify it for the driver if that information is displayed with every order
2. Under every truck insert the quadrat meters and under order how much every order takes room, so it will be showed after every order how much space there is available on that truck. That will make shore that truck is not overloaded with orders and logistic personal will be notified accordingly.
3.  Orders should be numbered based when they need to drop off so that order that needs to be delivered to first client wound be loaded to the truck first but last.
4. Is it ADR or temperature sensitive cargo so they wound end up in same truck.
5. For a milk pickup ring to insert how big is tank so if orders exceeds the tank capacity then logistic personal will be notified accordingly
6. For diesel delivery ring insert the tank size, so if order exceeds tank capacity then logistic personal can use odder truck for some clients.
7.  Digital signature option on delivery so whole delivery process can be paper free. More info here www.profittools.net/pod-digital-signature-capture
8. You have orders and import orders, but missing order history.  You should be able to see order history and pick for example yesterday’s order for client X. Click on it and make dublicate. Now just change the date and woala you have new order with seconds.
Currently very time consuming to enter every day the same order again and again and again
9. If you have filled up order form for client X and now writing same client X the system should offer to fill order form based on last order made to client X. System fills all the fields and you need to change the date and again you have new order with seconds
10. Maybe even have option to enter all your clients database so next time making order you need to type in few letters and system offers fill up order form.
11. Automatically send orders on your platform through Logistics API. Client can integrate his Website or APP with the Logistics API. Example here www.getswift.co
12. If client inserts 50 aadresses and selects 5 trucks for that job, then system should offer 5 optimized routs.

Meeting with client today and here is what they sead was missing:
1. They have 50 stores to supply, but dont want to hassel with excel every day. Want simply upload 50 stores one time and every morning pick stores from existing list (same as in Planning we can pick the uploaded orders)
2. Need to add orders to existing Routes that are Active
3. If some delivery point is missed client needs e-mail notification.

All partners please add your customer’s feedbacks here regarding Wialon Logistics so Gurtam  can improve it for our customers.

Re: Logistics

Dear,

I share your suggestions, I would add a couple of things:

We have customers who are currently working with other solutions for order management, in your experience, have some recommendations to improve logistics wialon and add to the suggestions already mentioned:

Most systems allocate orders to the units manually, but also automatically performed, based on certain variables, such as load capacity, optimum availability of carguío (in the case of vehicles equipped with refrigerator vehicles, assigned in temperature optima for charging) or the unit is next to a warehouse or in this located within it, thus avoiding assign an order to a unit that does not have the requirements to transport the order or does not have the capacity to distribute such order volume.

Taking into account the order of delivery orders, the system must be able to organize the way they will be loaded onto a vehicle, according to the delivery sequence, so that is coded flags that indicate that the first order to be delivered , will be the last to be loaded into the vehicle and last order will be the first to be charged. This is to facilitate the unloading and delivery of the order.

In addition the system is capable of measuring the cost of each delivery of your order.
Based on cost vs fuel mileage, and that the same is reflected in the system and reports.

Dynamic search engine to search for units, orders and customers.
Ability to add custom fields.

As the mobile app support is important to have the digital signature section or ability to scan QR codes or barcodes.

Best regards,

Re: Logistics

Re: Logistics

It would be great if you could implement notifications when the app is closed or in the background, so the driver would know that he has new orders or new chat message. And another option would be the possibility of adding custom sounds/loud alerts for these notifications so that they can be heard.

Re: Logistics

I see when looking in the Help option of phone app when it brings up the full help file it says it cane be used as a mobile tacker also.

It notes WiaTag - will it work with GPS Tag? We have a number of clients using GPS Tag and we were looking to offer them the Logistics function.

Thanks.

Re: Logistics

Hello

Good idea today from client. They want to have option to enter cost per kilometer, so in planning section they can see kilometers and cost. Some works will be undone if they go over client expected budget and are to far. They will be done some odder day or planned to some odder trucks.

Re: Logistics

CarCops, good idea, makes the system again a bit more flexible

Re: Logistics

Is the ability to use as a tracker with GPS Tag available or is it only for WiaTag?

Re: Logistics

Shame, will it become available for use with GPS Tag? We have a number of clients that would potentially use Logistics with their existing GPS Tag service.

Have had a look through the WiaTag manual and it does not seem to have the messaging functionality as GPS Tag has that allows for Chatterbox, otherwise we could potentially move clients to WiaTag to resolve.

Re: Logistics

Hello,

1. In planning mode, is it possible to sort by how far a vehicle is from delivery location? For example, if I have a field service location added as an order, I would like the closest vehicle to the order to service it.

2. In a related question, currently, if I select multiple orders and multiple units and press "distribute", what is the algorithm for picking which vehicles to assign to which orders? Based on my experiments, it is not necessasarily the closest to the order getting picked.

Thank you,

Re: Logistics

Dear,

Dynamic search engine to search for units, orders and customers.

Order Custom fields and ability to edit each field.

I have some notes that I think may be important to Wialon logistic improvements.
It would be helpful to have the ability to group orders, or have a detail of the items to be distributed to a single customer, since in most cases the companies distribute more than one product at a time.

Having a dashboard to measure the development of deliveries.
 
The algorithm should calculate in advance what time should leave the Unides the warehouse and delivery locations to meet tentatively set times.
Ability to view the geofencing created on the map, and create routes manually from the selection of Geofences pressing on which we want to visit.
An example of this can be:

A click on the geofence, select point Entrega1
Double-click on the geofence, remove delivery point selection

Re: Logistics

Hi ,

Can you explain bit more on below ,
+ SMS/ Email notification works ?  Notification will trigger N minutes in advance to the delivery destination ?
+ How does the estimated time works ? from the time the order is been distributed ? or once the vehicle leaves the Warehouse location ?
+ any possibility to trigger the delivery confirmation based on a sensor parameter ? ( like a valid RFID tag ?
