Generix Group presents GCS TMS Winter 2013, the latest edition of its transport management solution

Paris, November 15, 2013 – Generix Group, editor of collaborative software for retail, presents the Winter 2013 edition of its transport management solution, GCS TMS, which factors in new environmental constraints and yard relationship issues.

Press release

During this economic crisis, which is having a big impact on the transport sector, all consultants and expert analysts agree that TMS is the most profitable supply chain investment.

The transport management solution of the Generix Collaborative Supply Chain range, GCS TMS, is designed to reduce transport costs: better fill rates, optimized routes, easier choice of carriers, less administrative effort, the better quality of operations, and full visibility of transport performance. The gains observed are no less than 15% of the transport budget after one year, and represent at least 6% right from the start.

As a result of the close collaboration between Generix Group and its customers, GCS TMS is at the heart of the Supply Chain, between the different information systems of players in the logistics chain (retailers, manufacturers, service providers, and carriers).

GCS TMS provides immediate improvement at several levels:

  • Administrative: EDI procedures implementation, document management, invoice management time, efficient claims follow-up.
  • Financial: control of transport fees and costs according to route and grouping options and identification of the most profitable solutions. Quick and effective invoice checking. Help in the negotiation of transport purchases.
  • Operational monitoring: chart of best carriers, actual delivery time-frames, causes of customer claims.
  • Customer service: Track and Trace collaborative portals

The new Winter 2013 edition factors in new modules making GCS TMS a complete, immediately effective tool.

Close to environmental obligations

GCS TMS has an eco-responsible expert module to help companies when it comes to implementing tools to calculate the environmental impact of their transport. Today, this module consists of three sections and will develop in line with initiatives accompanying or guiding companies in deploying their eco-responsible strategy:

  • Ecotax: choice of route factoring in costs related to the ecotax, calculation of actual tax and increases, pre-invoicing and invoicing of the increase
  • CO2 information: calculation of CO2 associated with transport services in compliance with the rules published in the “Grenelle II” bill
  • Steering eco-environmental performance: connector to the European TK’Blue Agency portal for a simple and automated solution. In line with the operational constraints of logistics sites, A new transport portal to organize transport slots for Yard Management has been added to GCS TMS.

In line with the operational constraints of logistics sites, A new transport portal to organize transport slots for Yard Management has been added to GCS TMS. It allows external players (carriers, suppliers, etc.) to organize their loading or unloading slots autonomously. However, autonomy is controlled in order to suggest available slots in line with requirements (vehicle, goods, etc.) and capacities (doors, characteristics, etc.). The collaborative aspect between internal and external players is more reliable and improved. Robustness and performance GCS TMS can now be clustered to ensure high availability, increases in workloads, and scalability. Clustering allows the technical architecture to be adapted depending on functional specificities (specialization of nodes in performing certain processes, load balancing, etc.) and ensures continuity and quality of service related to the Service Level Agreements.
