Hamburg, 05.09.2018 The leogistics GmbH, global SAP logistics partner in the area of SAP Supply Chain Management (SCM), and the logistics consulting company TransCare GmbH start a strategic cooperation at the 35th German Logistics Congress. The goal: to offer customers integrated optimization of location, hub, port and rail logistics. To this end, both companies are pooling their strengths in this area. While TransCare concentrates on infrastructure planning and optimization of transport routes including rail networks at the location as well as costs and processes, leogistics advises on the digitization of logistics processes including the use of new technologies. In addition, leogistics helps to realize innovations such as IoT (Internet of Things) applications.
COMBINING STRENGHTS - COMPLEMENTING THE PORTFOLIO
For more than 25 years, TransCare has successfully supported companies and public clients in questions of strategic development and reorientation with a focus on transport and logistics. The internationally active consulting firm has expert knowledge in location, hub, port and rail logistics with a focus on cost, infrastructure and process optimisation.
leogistics complements its partner in the technology and solutions sector with know-how in IT modernization, process standardization, innovation adaptation and digitalization: leogistics offers process, application and technology expertise in all SAP logistics areas with its own SAP-based solutions for the optimization and digitalization of operative logistics processes as well as its own SAP-based standard solutions in special areas, including port and rail logistics. In addition, the SAP solutions house is an innovation driver in the integration of IoT scenarios with established SAP and cloud solutions in logistics.
"Through the partnership of leogistics and TransCare, we can combine a pronounced technical expertise in special areas such as location, hub, port and rail logistics with technological know-how and SAP competence," explains André Käber, Managing Director of leogistics GmbH.
"In leogistics, we are pleased to have a partner with whom we can round off our portfolio for rail and port companies, especially with regard to topics such as IT modernization and digitization of logistics processes," says Ralf Jahncke, Managing Partner of TransCare GmbH.
FAST LOCATION ANALYSIS
Through their collaboration, the companies offer a rapid analysis of locations: TransCare examines the potential for optimization in the areas of infrastructure (e.g. track areas, humps, hardware), process flows, personnel deployment planning and cost structure, and shows possible approaches for improvements. leogistics takes over the analysis of IT support and visualizes possibilities for process harmonization, process automation and digitization. Then the potentials are evaluated together, an optimization case and an implementation roadmap are created.
