Tuning personnel logistics to clockwork precision
ATOSS Logistics Solution – intelligent Workforce Management from start to finish
Logistics services are extremely personnel intensive and highly dependent on seasonal and order-related fluctuations. High levels of flexibility and efficient processes are required right across the company to handle the challenges of this international growth market. Demand-optimized workforce deployment plays a key role here. Workforce Management can be used to achieve effects long since exhausted in other areas, such as supply chain management. Faster delivery times, availability of goods at short notice and competitive prices are more crucial than ever to success in the global transport and logistics market. This is where our solutions make major contributions.
Focus on quality and quantity
The scheduling of actual personnel requirements must always be preceded by an in-depth analysis. The goal of optimal organization of working time along the supply chain is to absorb short-term absences, unoccupied time or work peaks in a cost-optimized manner. In logistics, however, it is not just about ascertaining the number of usable employees, but also their qualifications. If the employees assigned have the wrong or inadequate qualifications for the scheduled jobs, this often impacts negatively on the company. At the same time, planners also have to consider collectively agreed pay scale and statutory conditions as well as sector-specific factors, such as the actual volume of incoming goods or the time spent on repacking, packaging and labeling. ATOSS Logistics Solution brings all this information together to allow consistent optimization of workforce scheduling.
