Truck Driver app links warehouse and road
The Truck Driver app from Ehrhardt + Partner (E+P) brings mobility to logistics outside the warehouse: As a function of the latest version 8 of the LFS warehouse control system, the warehouse experts are marketing a solution that provides crucial support to truck drivers on their daily routes. All order data, the navigation along the optimum route as well as the order progress are simply displayed on the mobile terminal device, for example on a smartphone or tablet. It is no longer necessary to purchase expensive special hardware. Data are transferred via LFS directly from the warehouse to the app.
The Truck Driver app from E+P networks warehouse and roads in an intelligent way. Orders which were recorded at the warehouse are transferred to the mobile device and into the app in real time, making all data for the transport accessible with one click. The Truck Driver app automatically guides the user through the different actions of a route, such as navigating to the individual delivery points. The app documents the progress of each route and sends all information back to the LFS in real time – this constant exchange clearly reduces the administrative work for handling routes by omitting paper-bound documentation. It also avoids unnecessary waiting times at the loading dock.
Easy integration of third-party processes
The Truck Driver app runs on all Android operating systems and will soon also be available for iOS devices. This also allows the cost-efficient integration of external service providers into internal logistics processes via smartphone and tablet. The app reduces the cost and effort for all parties involved in the value chain. The Truck Driver app also serves its purpose without an internet connection: The driver can create digital receipts and document broken and defective goods.
