Logistics BusinessGeodis Parcel Arm Deploys TMS Across France Network

Geodis’ Distribution & Express line of business, a parcel delivery leader in France, has deployed a new Transport Management System (TMS) in the 110 agencies comprising its network. Called TEOS, the new tool was developed on the basis of Alertran, the software created by Spanish software publisher Alerce, which specialises in the transport and logistics sector.

This new transport management software, provides real-time tracking of all parcel delivery flows for Geodis in France. Indeed, more than 370,000 parcels are processed daily via hubs and then delivered to the final destination. Thanks to its web ergonomics and ease of use this new TMS simplifies the work of operational teams ensuring the smooth running of transport plans and shipment tracking.

“This TMS is a centralized tool that is on the cutting-edge of technology; it’s evolutionary, flexible and customized to support our clients’ growth. It is a valuable asset for the future, as it offers our clients impeccable service quality with increased proactivity in the management of shipments,” says Olivier Mélot, Managing Director of Geodis’ Distribution & Express line of business.

Carried out in partnership with Spanish software publisher Alerce, the deployment took place over a period of several months. Alerce relied on its Alertran software, which manages production and invoicing operations, as well as on the Senda module for route optimization. More than 100 people were involved in the various phases of the project: tool design, data collection, execution and user training.
