Handling bulk with precision
How Kärcher Australia successfully transformed their uniquely complex logistics operations with the Cario platform.
Customers can also choose a combination of these two models depending on their requirements and ownership of specific freight functions.
For example, at a high level, the following information needs to be defined within SAP to support native integration:
With the configurability of SAP, some scenarios might be better suited to the “arms-length” model such as when stock items are repackaged for shipping. The resulting shipment size might not equal the sum of the combined items’ individual dimensions and weight, making it very difficult to obtain freight pricing within SAP.
Also, many ERP systems do not validate what the customer supplies to ensure it is accurate. Customers often provide incorrect Post Codes or colloquial location names. This data needs to be accurate for freight management as these locations and postcodes are used to find the appropriate rates and calculate charges correctly
Using validated sender and receiver addresses, plus detailed consignment information with SAP, Cario will find all the carriers and services that would be suitable and allow accurate quotes to be calculated including fees
The same data provided for quoting can then be used with the chosen carrier and service to create the consignment
Once a Consignment has been created the carrier-specific labels need can be printed so they can be affixed to the items.
Once all consignments have been created (or individually for Courier type services) data is transferred to the carrier to alert them to the freight request and to organise the pickup.
