Businesses are always striving to make their processes more efficient, reducing unnecessary costs along the way. But that’s not the case right now!
Coronavirus wreaking havoc!
The rapidly evolving COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc in industries worldwide in more than one way. Due to the concern of contracting coronavirus, many companies are taking precautions to restrict travel and urging employees to work remotely. A lot of companies have already shut factories and banned business-related travel, political events, and tech events.
Coronavirus has thrown a new level of uncertainty into the 2020 outlook for the manufacturing and retail companies. Due to work from home, employees have moved further away from the warehouse forcing a longer exchange of information process within supply chain-related people.
The constant movement of goods raised a new challenge – how to manage large amounts of information quickly, operationally, and the most important, remotely? At this time, it is essential not only to optimise information exchange within the company but also with suppliers, carriers, and customers.
GoRamp steps up to help!
In an attempt to help current business challenges, GoRamp, a Lithuanian startup that offers a real-time logistics platform, has decided to provide free access to logistics management tools and urges manufacturers and retailers to make use of this opportunity to manage their current situation.
What do they do?
Founded in 2016, this Vilnius-based platform connects supply chain members. Its prime target is retailing and manufacturing companies with the necessity to cover end-to-end logistics processes and centralise information and documentation exchange within the supply chain. At present, the company offers its customers two products, which have already been recognized in European countries.
Tool #1: GoRamp Transport Order Management Tool!
This tool allows both manufacturing and trading companies to manage all the information flow from the transport quote requests for carriers until the invoice management after unloading, all in one place.
Also, it helps to keep up with information and speeds up communication between users. As information changes in real-time, it is immediately available to all users in the logistics chain.
Tool #2: Warehouse time slot management tool!
This second tool is all about creating a virtual warehouse between responsible ones for loading/unloading. Through this tool, transportation partners can book suitable arrival times in advance as per the requirements and working principles of the manufacturer.
The registration provides all the necessary information to both sides to arrive and depart as smoothly and expeditiously as possible. This tool quickly solves queue-to-warehouse issues and response time on arrival.
Digitise and manage your transport
If you are looking to digitise and centrally manage transport management is welcome to leave their contact information in the form on the startup website for online delivery. Since its an interactive tool, the onboarding and configuration process can be done on the same day.
As per the company claims, the logistics partners are not burdened with additional registrations, but at the same time, ensuring all necessary information security. GoRamp urges traders and manufacturers to look at this period as a medium of opportunities.
