Kale upgrades fleet management system

MUMBAI, July 29, 2015

India-based Kale Logistics Solutions has upgraded its transportation and fleet management system, Helios, by adding automated load planning and route optimisation functionality to the web-based application.

The functionality will help its clients optimise their vehicle utilisation and delivery time and thus increase customer satisfaction, the company said.

Effective load planning can help transporters reduce fuel usage and improve vehicle safety and speed. The module offers the transporter a comparison between order volume and vehicle resources available. A plan gets created based on best recommended combination and the transporter chooses the most optimised plan for delivery, it said.

It also helps control expenses, prevent delivery delays and avoid cumbersome co-ordination between customer and drivers.  

The new feature in Helios provides the management a dashboard view of vehicle utilisation levels and helps improve efficiency of the overall transportation cycle, which in turn, encourages customer satisfaction as the load reaches them in time.

Vineet Malhotra, senior vice-president, Kale, said: “The digital movement and demands of the rising distribution industry has made the next generation of transporters and their management aware of the importance of planning the vehicle load and route. They realise that by minimising human intervention on ground they can optimise their resources including staff time, vehicles, fuel and delivery time”.

Helios, with its team management system (TMS) module, caters to transportation service providers to help them manage the entire business lifecycle from vehicle request to placement to delivery to billing. Its fleet management module helps to manage all the activities from trip sheet, driver settlement, fuel tracking, billing to a market vendor and confers financial control over fleet hub. - TradeArabia News Service
