Storage and Distribution

Reduce inventory and accelerate time to delivery with continuous supply chain schedule coordination

With massive increases in e-commerce and delivery there is ever growing pressure on the storage, management and handling of inventory on their way through the supply chain and a need to maximise every square metre of space in the distribution centres that are the hubs of the network. 

No space should be left unused when vehicles are queuing to deliver and receive goods and and businesses are having to accommodate the cost of expanding warehouse and distribution space.

More orchestration is needed within the supply chain to increase the flexibility of individual offers, increase utilisation and reduce the capex associated with providing essential infrastructure. This can only be delivered with effective schedule automation that can allocate demand as efficiently as possible.
 

Time-at-door analysis

Uses product, telematics and building data to predict accurate time-at-door. Improves schedule efficiency.

Shift Pattern Optimisation

Predicts shift patterns that better match supply with demand. Improves employee effectiveness and satisfaction.

Demand Forecasting

Uses historical data to predict demand for any given location. Enables improved pricing and resourcing decisions.

Slot Cost Prediction

Uses environmental data sources to predict future demand so to accurately calculate slot costs and drive customer behaviour.

Supplier Reliability

Better predicts when products will enter the warehouse. Used to optimise throughput and onward distribution.

Real Time Tracking

Uses real-time route information to enable adaptive machine learning to compare actual versus planned trips. Improves compliance and decision-making.

The bedrock of effective inventory management is data analytics. flowOS ingests the fleet telemetry and order book data of you and your partners and applies advanced Data Mining and Machine Learning processes to better estimate achievable journey times at different times of the day, week and year. This data driven approach allows you to build precise, contextual schedules, storage and delivery itineraries.
