The COGLAS WMS is also the right solution for the transport of goods within the supply chain. Thus the software controls and monitors the prefetching of general cargo and packages to the hub and the corresponding loading on long-distance traffic. The delivery of the goods with delivery proofs, refusal of acceptance and many other business cases are also taken over by the software, which thus functions as a close connection to the order management and the tour planning.
Merchandise management and forwarding orders can also be planned as shipments with the WMS module COGLAS® Transport. After the availability check of an order, the software creates the shipment, which is automatically pre-booked or scheduled for a relation.
COGLAS® Transport makes it possible to schedule a shipment based on maintained item master data. This forecast may contain information at the shipment header level. Examples include the total weight, the total volume and the number of packages as well as dangerous goods information according to dangerous goods transport regulations at the the package item level. In loading pre-planning, the transport vehicles are created as a resource in COGLAS® Warehouse Management. Thus weight restrictions can be planned and scheduled for each axle and each load meter or by volume.
Afterwards the software transfers the data to a tour planning or forwarding system. After this tours are complete COGLAS® Transport takes over the prescribed tours for loading.
The systems exchange data on shipments and shipment items with each other, as well as process status information. The data transfer runs via the standard interface COGLAS® DataExchange. Thus individual information from other systems can also be standardized in COGLAS® Transport.
