With the Yellowstar supply chain forwarding web portal, offshore installation company Huisman Equipment can organize and control all its transports and logistic processes via 1 central system. The central supply chain web portal is 24/7 accessable via the internet-browser from every location & country (Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic, Singapore, Brasil, China, USA).
Huisman Equipment transports a large number of supply-, maintenance- & projectequipment for the production of heavy offshore material between the different production locations, customers, suppliers, etc. To manage this logistical process and to support the increasing number of shipments, the supplier of offshore cranes used an external (webbased) applicationn, named ‘Hoogle’ since 2006. Because of the various shipment variants (PO’s, spare parts orders, after-sales orders, intercompany orders, etc.) and the different maintenance contracts with customers, Huisman needed 1 central system to organize and consolidate its entire supply chain. With massive growth of the offshore company in prospect, the supply chain forwarding portal offers Huisman sufficient support for a healthy future.
The purpose of the supply chain web portal is to consolidate all shipments efficiently from 1 central system. Via the integrated track & trace option, everyone has realtime, 24/7 and anywhere on the entire globe access to the transport status and the location of all goods. Also every employee has access to all transportation-related documents, such as CMR’s, photos, certificates, the Boxlist, Pro-forma invoice, etc.
Many improvements are achieved through the new system:
The Rail Cargo Group (RCG) has commissioned Yellowstar to develop a new Transport Management System and Terminal Operating System for controlling its international intermodal transport operations. This allows RCG to consolidate their system landscape and thus operate with far greater efficiency.Read more →
