Run an agile, efficient, cost effective and profitable business with Sage Enterprise Management (formerly known as Sage X3) for Transport & Logistics


Sage Enterprise Management (formerly known as Sage X3) for Transportation & Logistics

The Transportation and Logistics Industry forms the backbone of any country. Ensuring that food, drinks and all consumer goods get from the warehouse to the supermarket shelves as well as the safe transport of petrol to ensure our tanks are always full. Transport and logistics is what enables South Africa to be part of the world economy through our imports and exports. Transport and Logistics companies are going to have to come up with ways to keep their prices affordable in a constantly evolving economy.
There is not much that companies can do to resolve these challenges as they are largely Government and political issues. In order for Transport & Logistics companies to survive they need to re-assess their current systems and identify ways they can maximize their efficiencies and streamline their operations using a Technology platform that is built to manage and handle the current and future technological trends.
The future of the Transportation and Logistics industry and the success of the companies in this industry is linked to their ability and desire to embrace advancements in technology.

Sage Enterprise Management (formerly known as Sage X3) for Transport and logistics is built on a technology platform that will take your business forward, allowing you to take advantage of IoT processors, devices and sensors such like:

  • Managing Fleets with GPS tracking not only for location tracking and route optimization but to track vehicle utilization for maintenance purposes and fuel consumption reporting and to ensure your drivers are being responsible and safe on the roads.
  • IoT devices and sensors that are installed to monitor goods in transit across the chain to provide better insight for shippers and receivers. These sensors can monitor temperature in the case of cold storage carriers and provide alerts to notify the driver or management should a critical issue arise.
  • It will only be a matter of time before the safety regulation around drone delivery is formalized which will be another disruptive technology for the Transport and Logistics industry and when driverless car technology is perfected and readily available that too will change the landscape for Transport & Logistics companies.
