Real-time container tracking on your factory premises

With the Flexus container tracking you have everything in view!

The position of your transported container is determined using a GPS sensor on the respective forklift. Additional properties such as the level of the container can be stored directly in SAP by the forklift driver.

The real-time tracking of the containers acts as a comprehensive interface between the yard management and the forklift guidance system. Combine both systems for a transparent material flow throughout your plant.

How the Yard Management solution for SAP® works

The arriving trucks are recorded directly in SAP via a fast entry mask and registered for goods receipt or shipping. The driver receives a registration slip with which he can be clearly assigned to a SAP transport, which can then be processed.

In the next step, the transports are scheduled at the appropriate loading ramp. Registered transports can be identified directly via status tracking. The control and assignment of the incoming and outgoing transports to the available loading ramps is done using drag & drop.

The allocation of the loading and unloading orders is carried out by the integrated transport control system in a resource-optimized manner to the industrial trucks. With the combination of transport guidance system and yard control system, you can optimally use the synergies of the two SAP add-ons.

In addition, you can implement the mobile SAP solutions for posting the goods receipt in order to map the entire material flow in SAP. The mobile solutions include, for example, the mobile posting of incoming goods, production and shipping. The assignment of driving orders to the forklift fleet takes place directly from the web-based FLX-Yard Control. The driver is called to your factory premises via SMS or pager.
