For our logistics company (3PL), the objective is to create a system that keeps track of shipments. We need to design an app to send GPS coordinates and a GPS platform to follow freight shipments in a Map (Web Based or Computer based), with pickups times, delivery times, and other measurements or indicators (KPI's).
We look into the ability to receive data from a current ERP that will be installed in the company, and with this assign the different freight jobs to workers or suppliers with a phone with an app installed in their device. This may happen in a second stage.
-Must be able to track different units who has the app instaled in their device to show them in a map.
-Must be able to assign a shipment.
-Must be able to assign a shipment with route (second phase).
-Must be able to deliver different indicators.
-Must be able to summarize different freight units which has a current shipment on the go.
-Preferably on the cloud. May be server based.
-Must be able to receive a Proof of Delivery from each shipment in a cloud based or server database.
-Must be low data transfer to assign freights to suppliers.
-Account Management (For us to see different Freight Suppliers)
-Report of fulfillment and timing of freight units.
