Transportation Management

Services

Solistica sees transportation as a key component of the supply chain due to the great number of essential processes deriving from it – such as transfer, supply, distribution, and reverse logistics — and to the competitive factors it impacts — such as logistics costs and customer service. Therefore, we offer these services:

Multimodal transportation

We advise companies on the type of transportation they should use to meet their shipping requirements according to their characteristics, costs, speed, safety, capacity, and reliability, among other features.

Companies should choose the most adequate means of transportation to move their cargo according to budget, goals, and logistics processes. Solistica understands this; therefore, we offer the option of hiring one or several means of transportation for every load:

  • Sea transportation
  • Air transportation
  • Rail transportation
  • Road transportation

Solistica advises companies on the type of transportation they should use to meet their shipping requirements depending on several factors: physical characteristics, costs, speed, safety, capacity, reliability, exports terms, location, access to ports, and staff.

LTL and FTL

We offer cargo strategies that increase productivity, lower costs, and expedite shipping taking origin, destination, availability, goods characteristics, budget, urgency, and special requirements into account.

We offer cargo strategies that increase productivity, lower costs, and expedite shipping, taking factors like origin, destination, type of distribution channel, availability, products’ characteristics (size, shape, weight, fragility), budget, delivery urgency, and special requirements into account. We offer two modalities:

  • Full truck load (FTL): our vehicles move loads from a single company, ranging from 10 to 24 pallets (from 4.5 to 20 tons); or else, fragile, high-risk, or products in need of urgent delivery.
  • Less than truck load (LTL): we make the best use of our vehicles’ space putting together loads from several companies, ranging from 45 kilograms to 5.5 tons, from 1 to 6 pallets.

Solistica helps companies find out which is the best option for every scenario. Through our advanced transportation management systems, we find the best way to effectively manage loads, either FTL or LTL.

Risk management

We specialize in detecting and preventing risks and threats and improving the protection and handling of merchandise through safety systems throughout the supply chain, including transportation.

Theft and product damage deriving from mishandling or accidents during transportation represent more than financial losses for companies, they also cause delays in their operations.

Solistica specializes in implementing measures to detect and prevent risks and threats; improving the protection and manipulation of goods, using safety systems throughout the supply chain, including transportation, through different tools:

  • Labels with bar codes and scanners to record the goods entering and leaving the warehouse so we can monitor them in route and verify delivery in real time.
  • Safety systems that make it easier to record and control merchandise, guaranteeing the invulnerability of loading, warehousing, and transportation facilities.
  • Monitoring alerts in platform by exception and alerts from the surroundings to detect threats and protocols.
  • Navigation and location technology (GPS) to maintain contact and control over the shipments and to offer tracking to clients, plan better routes, supervise driving, locate drivers, detect traffic, and respond quickly.

Our Intel Center has the most advanced technology to guarantee the safety of products at the warehouse and during transportation.

Technology Applied to Transportation

Transportation is such a complex process optimized through technological tools that make pick up, warehousing, processing, distribution, and shipping more efficient.

Solistica’s Transportation Management System (TMS) helps define the best type of transportation according to parameters such as costs, time, stops, and order grouping. Furthermore, it provides visibility on historical records and creates alerts for delays, accidents, and unforeseen stops as well as reports for performance indicators and delivery proof like digitized bills.

This system lets us offer clients the following benefits:

  • Lower transportation costs thanks to better planning and automation of exceptions
  • Higher levels of service, which translates into higher sales
  • Increased control of operations by optimizing the management of transportation
  • Better cargo consolidation, which leads to a level we cannot reach via manual analyses
  • Efficiency of processes that eliminates errors caused by manual processes and lowers costs
  • Monitoring freight suppliers, which lets us negotiate rates and improve service

The future of transportation is marked by data gathering and data analysis, automated and electrical systems, robotization, and automation of processes, and the collaboration of the sector’s companies. Solistica is getting ready to meet all these requirements.
