MULTI-LEVEL AND TRACK & TRACE DISTRIBUTION NETWORKS

SideUp Reply™ HUB is the on-demand solution designed to support the management of multi-level logistics distribution network.
Manages receiving, sorting, cross docking, consolidation and shipping activities in logistics centres or transit points.

THE SOLUTION

THE SOLUTION

SideUp Reply™ HUB is the solution designed to manage, in real-time, sorting centres and transit platforms, facilitating the quick and punctual routing of inbound packages to their next destination.

The perfect coordination of incoming and outgoing flows allow for a marked reduction in processing times and enable the complete traceability of the entire logistics network, resulting in a near-total reduction of routing errors.

The immediately available cloud solution allows the customer to quickly configure complex networks composed of tens to hundreds of logistics nodes that carry out receiving, sorting and shipping operations.

Graphical KPIs and dashboards with alerts ensure that processes related to the distribution of millions of packages, pallets or letters are monitored and efficient, keeping track of expected processing times and service levels with respect to both logistics centres and transport lines and shuttles.

The logistics processes are fully integrated with the management systems and are automated through the use of identification systems based on barcodes, RFID tags or integration with automation systems (sorters).

THE PROCESS

THE PROCESS

The activities managed by the SideUp Reply™ HUB solution are all physical activities carried out in sorting and distribution centres, attributed to the following operational processes and divided into two logical groups.

RECEPTION AND DISTRIBUTION IN THE LOGISTICS CENTRE

The main processes managed are those typical of a logistics site, whose purpose is to handle the sorting phase quickly and accurately. Processes characteristic of distribution logistics therefore are:

  • Check In: inbound journey management and checking of packages received
  • Sorting: the package is routed to the next destination based on the relevant routing rules
  • Consolidation: multiple packages intended for the same centre can be grouped into logistic transport units (rolls, containers, pallets, etc.)
  • Check Out: outbound checking and loading

SUPPORT PROCESSES

Support processes are needed to manage the activities and operations related to the distribution process or typical of a particular sector:

  • Package storage:makes it possible to organise and manage the transit and storage of packages and logistics units
  • Space management: configuration and organisation of the areas and definition of logistics units
  • Routing rules: configuration of the network and rules for the routing and transit of the packages. Facilitates the definition of multiple-level hierarchies of logistics nodes for a network
  • Lines and shuttles: configuration and definition of main and secondary lines that connect the network’s logistics centres
  • Composition of rounds: configuration and management of rounds for the collection and delivery of packages
  • DDrop off and Hand off points: configuration and rules for the hand-off of packages to other logistical networks or collection centres
  • Network monitoring: dashboards, KPIs and configurable alarms for different levels of visibility from individual centres, aggregating the data based on different service levels and geographical areas
  • Traceability: configuration of events and searches focused on traceability at the shipment and/or package level
