Real-time transportation visibility (RTTV) solutions provider Shippeo announced this week a strategic partnership with IDS, a 4PL logistics control tower specialist. With active involvement from its customer, DSM, a global player in nutrition, health and sustainable living, IDS has started to onboard Shippeo’s RTTV platform to further future proof its transportation management solutions for the benefit of its customers and the environment.
With Shippeo’s RTTV solution, IDS provides a dashboard with a track-and-trace status and real-time link for the end customer. The accurate Expected Time of Arrival (ETA) is shared with all stakeholders in the supply chain.
This new level of transparency boosts operational efficiency, productivity and customer satisfaction. It allows IDS’s customers to optimise their planning and required resources, enabling them to improve productivity at loading and delivery locations. Additionally, phone calls and emails on ETA status are reduced to a minimum, making communication far more efficient and less time consuming. Customers also save costs and penalties thanks to improved handling and shorter dwell and wait times, while at the same time reducing their CO2 footprint.
For the IDS Control Tower Teams accuracy and reliability are crucial – they need to leverage the right data at the right time. European driver regulations, borders and cross docks make this even more challenging.
“Real-time status information and predictive ETAs at your fingertips is what our customers want,” said Leon de Koning, Managing Director of IDS. “With Shippeo’s RTTV, we will empower companies by arming them with instant access to predictive and real-time information for every delivery, both inbound and outbound.”
