Neviso ABP Logistics Software was created to improve animal by-product logistics, including cadaver collection from farms and by-products from slaughterhouses. It was initially created together with an ABP Renderer, to fulfill the specific needs of the animal by-product (ABP) industry. But how, exactly, could Neviso ABP Logistics Software save you money and increase your profitability?
Route planning of Trucks
Neviso schedules cadaver collections and slaughterhouse transfers using a modern, easy-to-use transportation planning tool. The routes are planned to optimise the driver’s working time and to minimise the distance travelled. It is also possible to reroute drivers during the day, to make the most efficient use of your fleet and ensure more trucks return with a full load. You can also reduce the number of kilometres travelled and the amount of trucks used, making savings on your company’s fuel costs.
Receiving ABP Collection Orders
The first step is to simplify your order-handling process. The Nevsio system accepts orders online, directly from the customer, and by telephone to your team. By reducing the number of calls received to your office, you can cut the number of work hours spent answering the phone and redeploy people to more urgent tasks within your company.
Throughout the entire process, commercial documents are handled digitally, producing country-specific reports for EU regulations, local authorities and your company’s management team. Digitalized documents and reports offer easy search and retrieval and, therefore, improved traceability. Also, accounting and invoicing for transport companies and drivers can be based on the actual kilometres driven, the precise amount of material transported or the number of containers carried. Digitalized documents also remove the need for a large, physical storage facility for paper files, so you can put that space to a more productive use.
Improved raw material
Neviso’s optimised route-planning enables a quicker and more effective collection process. This means the raw material is collected as early as possible, limiting the degradation of the material and reducing associated waste. This combination of less waste and better quality raw material can lead to increased output and a better quality of end-product.
These four points, combined, create a customer-focused level of service. It is easier for customers to place orders in the way they want to. Keeping things simple makes your company more appealing to younger, technology-aware customers, while allowing the personal service for more traditional customers. You can also monitor the progress of the collections and get status reports for each pick-up, so you are informed and can advise your customers. Offering enhanced service will improve customer retention, saving your company the costs associated with winning new customers.
