Your digitalisation advantages in detail

Information lead through transport monitoring Information lead through transport monitoring

Information lead through transport monitoring

Our vehicles are equipped with state-of-the-art telematics and monitoring occurs automatically. The systems continuously calculate the expected time of arrival (ETA) taking into consideration the driver's remaining travel time and the current traffic. So we always know where your load is and when it reaches the loading or unloading point. In the event of unplanned deviations, our Transport Manager receives information immediately and can check alternative solutions.


Keep an eye on your transports! Of course you can track the entire transport process and the ETA yourself. Our CONNECT customer platform provides you with corresponding real-time information from placement of the order to unloading. You can use this extra knowledge to optimise your processes.


YOUR BENEFITS

  • Timely information
  • Optimised use of the loading ramps
  • Avoiding standstills
  • Improved customer service
  • Automatisation of your processes

Customised transport execution

LKW WALTER offers you customised transport solutions. For this, we need to make all the information about your specific requirements available to our employees at all times. For this reason, we store your transport-relevant customer information in ONE central knowledge database.


In addition, we can take into consideration the way you work by using the "Business Rule Configurator". This enables us to manage your business processes and define individual and automated monitoring processes. This allows precise management of the entire transport process, increasing the efficiency in planning and implementation.

Fully informed drivers through the LOADS TODAY app

A good driver is one of the main factors for a successful transport. Our LOADS TODAY app makes a significant contribution to this. It shortens the learning phase for new drivers and provides them with information about your individual requirements.


With "virtual checkpoints", we focus on your individual factory regulations. If the driver enters a check point set up by us, he receives the instructions for your loading or unloading point on the LOADS TODAY app. Providing him with the right information at the right time.


In addition, app-based e-learning provides drivers with subject-specific content in a simple form. For example, about personal protective equipment or measures to improve load securing.


YOUR BENEFITS

  • Shortened learning phase for drivers
  • Optimal service during execution of transport
  • Easy to understand e-learning with images & videos

Our customised "Geofencing" automatically informs you of the vehicle's arrival at the loading and unloading points.

This means that you have an overview of your orders at all times.

Through our standardised Application Programming Interface we offer you the possibility to automate your processes and to contribute to a reliable and fast data exchange. With graphical user interfaces, we also increase usability.
