Logistics BusinessFull 4PL Visibility Claimed For Yusen’s Live Track and Trace System

Yusen Logistics has launched what it calls a “pioneering” live track and trace system, VISIONi, which aims to provide full 4PL visibility. In-house designed and developed, VISIONi is claimed to offer “best in class unique capabilities for live temperature and door open security monitoring, along with GPS tracking, and autonomous pre-emptive alerts and reports”.

Driven by Yusen Logistics’ (www.yusen-logistics.com) core transportation management system, VISIONi offers a “stringently controlled” operation across ninety GDP approved hauliers as part of its Control Tower solution for the pan European healthcare supply chain. Real-time 24 hour monitoring minimises risk, says the company, whilst security bulletins continuously respond to evolving intelligence – providing the opportunity to alert drivers of changing crime hotspots and amend routes according to the latest sensitive or banned locations.

Live data is communicated through route status boards and pre-emptive alerts to provide accurate arrival times. Alongside this, fully automated reporting further improves process efficiencies, such as temperature tracking reports available on arrival to enable a faster stock-in process, and daily customer delivery schedules for advanced planning and allocation of resources – including purchase order information, vehicle registrations and driver names.

The full 4PL visibility that VISIONi offers provides an unrivalled quality of data, enabling a true understanding of key KPIs, from OTIF to delivery on-time and dwell time at sites. This is together with VISIONi’s market leading capability to fully integrate with other Haulier tracking systems, making it fully autonomous and independent.  Even for single use hauliers, an android app ensures a short-term solution so that essential information is always readily accessible.
