How can ERP System help Logistic Chain
The implementation of ERP in logistics strengthens the cooperation between providers,
companies and clients involved in the logistic process. The communication improves the
coordination of the agents entailed.
The main advantage of the ERP is the possibility of focusing exclusively on the individual
Business, as this will result in the reduction of costs, optimization of the services and the
increase in profits.
All the logistic chains have indicators such as break of stock, date of delivery, and
changes in the production line. ERP system will help to improve all those indicators. In general,
all the logistic processes experience an improvement due to the increase in their flexibility.
The specific requirements of the commercial and logistics area are represented by ERP
for all the shapes of Business: retail and wholesale stores, import and export stores, distribution
and service, shipping and transport. The staggered and universal character of the system has
the significant advantage that allows the wholesalers and retailers to find the right solution to
their problems.
Also, the importation and exportation commerce has special answers for their needs.
The extension of different services offered to reinforce the orientation requirements of the clients
are taken into account
The characteristics and application areas of ERP systems
One elementary factor in optimizing a companys important core business processes is
the fast and precise retrieval, integration and collection of information. Enterprise resource
planning ERP is a system that uses modern information technology to manage the functions of
various company divisions and to create transparency in the process. Through the use of ERP and, as a result, a single data model for all company-relevant information - significant amounts
of internal integration can be achieved. This is an important benefit especially for international
companies. But small and mid-sized companies can profit from tailor-made ERP solutions as
For the entire supply chain , an ERP system with a shared data model is a desirable
solution - but the implementation of it is extremely complex. The trend toward outsourcing is
also raising the systems cost because the number of companies in the supply chain continues
to expand.
Advanced planning systems (APS) represent an extension of the ERP in terms of
relationships with other companies. These systems represent complex logistics structures and
processes in a supply chain , and facilitate fast responses and optimal inventories and
capacities. For this purpose, APS uses data managed by ERP systems. In the automotive
industry, for instance, the supply chain can be mapped all the way to the pre-suppliers of a
system supplier. As a result, critical paths can be recognized and supply squeezes prevented at
an early point in time.

ERP Logistics: Streamline processes of supply, storage, goods delivering,
redistribution of property, delivery planning
The role of the logistics module is to supply fluidized processes, storage, redistribution of
goods inside a company or delivery of goods to customers. This SeniorERP module is involved
in the planning of existing infrastructure resources in view of their optimal use. Primary data are
taken from related modules.
The advantages of Logistics module

Group deliveries to customers based on sales areas

Multiple ways of efficiently planning delivery, purchasing, cars and drivers
Automatic issuance of documents necessary for trips
The benefits of Logistics module

Get streamlined supply processes

Optimize supply and storage activity
Optimal use of infrastructure resources
Avoid overloading or unavailability of cars
ERP Logistics: Delivery Area

In general, a distribution company may have one or more work points of its own.
Depending on its organization, a work point can both ensure sales activities and logistics
delivery. If the work point serves a significant number of clients and operates planned logistics
activities, these clients may differentiated according to areas of delivery.
An area of delivery represents the logical grouping of clients in order to establish a
supply route. The delivery area may serve one or more sales divisions, depending on the nature
and volume of sales.
One car is used in one area of delivery according to a visit plan. In defining a client, an
average time for preparing an order, can be set time being estimated based on historical data,
so that, when entering a new customer order into the system, the first possible delivery can be
automatically planned, as well as the delivery person and the car that will serve on the route at
that time. Later, you can adjust these plans, in case of overload or unavailable items (damaged
car, unavailable driver).
ERP Logistics: Planning deliveries / cars / drivers
This sub module takes information defined in the car fleet module and it uses it in the
process of planning the delivery of goods.
A car can ideally be active 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so there is a need for detailed
planning of activities. Also, a car can have at least one driver per working hours or per delivery

and it can serve one or more divisions. With the current sub module these logistical activities
can be planned and pursued effectively.
