“In the ideal situation, the phone should no longer ring.”Rene Hoogvliet, ICT-manager at Estron
End of 2015, Estron took the warehouse and customs modules of 3PL Dynamics into service. A few month later, the logistics service provider decided to use the full business suite of Boltrics and has gone live early this year with TMS, ERP, and FMS. In 2017, they will also connect the freight forwarding activities (air- and ocean freight) in 3PL Dynamics.
All in one
By combining all business units in a single software application, data only have to be filled out once. In addition, the data is 24/7 available and within just a few clicks a total overview of all activities for a customer can be showed. All data hail from one source. Additionally, Estron allows all business units to make use of the latest Microsoft technology.
Rene Hoogvliet, IT Manager at Estron Group: “Boltrics’ software is always available on the latest version of Microsoft Dynamics enabling us to benefit from the latest innovations of Microsoft. So, we are better prepared for the future. Additionally, Boltrics – again – proved to be able to successfully realize a project of this magnitude in a very short period of time.
TMS & Finance
Estron operates at rates that are contractual captured with customers and carriers. The tariff structures are set in the TMS (per carrier or customer), so the price of a ride/job is calculated automatically, orders to charters can be sent quickly and customers are always billed correctly. Orders can be grouped together, in case it is necessary, into a single invoice so that the invoice (administration) burden is reduced.
WMS & customs
The WMS software of 3PL Dynamics supports all warehouse processes of Estron, such as goods in, goods out, cross docking, orderpicking, blocking goods, invoicing and reporting. In addition, communication with customs is handled via 3PL Dynamics.
