For many companies disturbances in logistics are costly in terms of time and money.
The automated, adaptive de-escalation system ADiLO facilitates a controlled and continuous flow of information between everyone involved in transportation on the road. Irregularities are detected automatically, are structured and recorded: » in real-time » on all common mobile devices » irrespective of the operation system.
77% of all transports are carried out on the streets. But all too often things happen that prevent these transports from being efficient. The consequences: unnecessary holding times, too much fuel consumption and exhaust emissions, time pressure on truck drivers that lead to missing rest periods and may result in accidents. All this is part of everyday life in German economy, with enormous impact on our society.
We are seeking solutions by developing ADiLO: an automated, adaptive, de-escalating alarm system that provides controlled, continuous exchange of information between all parties involved in goods traffic. Errors and disturbances are going to be automatically detected, and the data will be documented and structured.Imagine: a truck is stuck in traffic; the driver calls his forwarding company. They eventually inform the customer who should have received the goods. The conveyor belts of the factory stop. Meanwhile, the truck is able to continue on its way. But the driver’s statutory rest period is due. What now?
How can perishable cargo be transported in time on the streets? What does a customer do when all deliveries arrive at the same time? Many devices and systems already support parties involved in transportation in their special field. But the processes lack a continuous, flexible and purposeful flow of information of constant quality for ALL participants.
ADiLO is going to fill that gap. It is an easy to handle alarm system for de-escalation, which can be adapted and expanded, especially to already defined processes and customer’s requirements for message transmission.
To develop ADiLO we have teamed up with Leipzig University, the BMW group and C-Informationssysteme GmbH. The development of this innovative system is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (EFRE) since early 2016.
ADiLO is applicable for small enterprises and large companies alike. The system can be used by mobile computers and by standard IT-equipment of trucks. Via open interfaces the system can be connected to existing transport and logistics systems. All parties involved can be integrated. That way forwarding companies and their customers will be able to schedule much more precisely and to de-escalate any unanticipated situation in time.
