Nexeed Intralogistics Execution
Complete transparency of the vehicle fleet for logisticians
What does Fleet Analytics offer?
It is a common problem in logistics that little reliable data is available regarding the usage and efficiency of individual transport vehicles. The Fleet Analytics application of Nexeed Intralogistics Execution provides logistics specialists with information about the entire fleet. A unique feature of this application is the option to implement any vehicle regardless of its type and manufacturer. All mobile transport systems for in-house traffic are equipped with sensors and entered into the system, at which point their statuses are logged continuously.
Live overview of all vehicles
This creates an overview of driving times, waiting times and downtimes as well as the proportion of empty and loaded runs. Recording the position and speed of the vehicles also allows their operation to be graphically represented in the form of a heat map. This enables employee to recognize quickly whether hazards zones are present, e.g. due to frequent travel paths crossing with pedestrian standing areas, and to take action against the hazard, for instance by reducing the speed of the vehicle.
The real-time data can persist as an overview for individual days or entire months. It thus serves as both a basis for deriving process optimization and as a way to verify the effectiveness of this optimization. One benefit of having such well-founded knowledge is the ability to reduce the size of the vehicle fleet.
Easy to integrate
This technique can be integrated into ongoing operations with little effort. Aside from attaching sensors to the vehicles themselves, the only other necessary step is placing separate visual markings, which in combination with the in-house Realtime Locating System accurately calculate the position of the vehicle within the boundaries of a few centimeters.
