Pickup planning and drivers' 'paperless office'.

Transport

Pickup planning and drivers’ ‘paperless office’. Knowing how many, what and when eggs get in from the farms and/or external suppliers can be critical for a streamlined production process. The Pickup planning is designed to plan the transport from the farm warehouse/cooler to the processing plant.

A few important reasons to use the pickup planning are:

  • Insight in inventory levels at the farms
  • Planning internal or external trucks
  • Expected time of arrival
  • Supply inventory
  • Truck driver instructions
  • Warehouse receipt document

The interface to the driver’s system has several benefits. With this addition, planning knows when eggs will be received and can anticipate in case of a delay in the expected time of arrival. The mobile solution, extending OVO-Vision to the drivers, includes order management, barcode scanning, pictures, attachment library, work instructions, registration of number of pallets, registration of number of eggs and much more!

“The driver is guided step-by-step through the day.”

Direct transfer via on-farm scanning

In addition to the paperless office for truck drivers, OVO-Vision has created the direct transfer order. In the Transport order the pickup at the farm of ungraded eggs and delivery of supplies (e.g. pallets and trays) where already available besides the delivery of finished goods to shops, customers and or DC’s.

Now OVO-Vision can pick up for instance 6 pallets ungraded eggs and 1 pallet B-quality at the farm of which 2 plus the 1 B need to go to the packing station and 4 are directly delivered to a colleague egg processor (vendor). OVO-Vision will handle all the paperwork in the background.

  • The shipping documents are directly created for the colleague packing station
  • The order and invoice for the colleague packing station will be created
  • All contract information such as, pricing and annual contract amount, can be taken care of
  • All return goods (e.g. pallets and trays) are registered and inventory will be adjusted
  • The use of internal and external transport companies
    • Creating purchase order for external transport
    • Planning of drivers/trucks
    • Transport cost visible in margin calculation
    • Pricing per pallet place or miles/km or full truck
  • Tracking & tracing information will be transferred
    • Lot information
    • Flock information
    • Production date and other properties
    • ATC information

The big benefit of this solution is that:

    • No need to first bring the product to the packing station
    • Integrated transport planning
    • No mistakes on:
      • Forgetting to invoice
      • Inventory adjustment
      • Wrong pricing
      • Contract adjustment
      • Quality information
