The logistics platform Yandex.Routing has launched a new service, Delivery Control, which monitors the movement of suppliers’ vehicles in real time.
It is expected that distribution centers of retail chains, warehouses of distributors and darkstores of online stores will become users of the service.
“Supply control” continuously monitors all the suppliers’ vehicles that go to the warehouse, taking into account their geo-position, speed and traffic situation on their way, for example, the prospect of education
traffic jams. For each vehicle, a special algorithm calculates ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) and collects all data in a single window. This will help logisticians track
the arrival of many vehicles with cargo from different suppliers.
The service is designed to provide transparency in the supply chain of FMCG manufacturers in order to increase delivery speed and reduce costs. “Delivery control” allows you to identify the cause of the failure, for example
late car or queue for unloading, and promptly eliminate it.
Using the ETA indicator in logistics allows you to optimize transport flows and labor resources. The warehouse knows in advance when and in what volume the order will be ready for unloading, therefore
can reduce delivery downtime losses and balance staffing levels.
Currently, about 10 FMCG manufacturers from the list of major suppliers of retail chains, including Baltika, Kolomensky BKK, Rusagro and Simple Group, operate on the Yandex.Routing platform.
These and other suppliers have already gained the ability to transmit data on the movement of their goods to retail chains and stores. By the end of the year, the company plans to increase the number of people connected to the platform
manufacturers from the FMCG segment to provide a more complete picture of supply to retail chains.
