TIGHT MARGINS, AGING TECHNOLOGY, INCREASED REGULATIONS AND LACK OF VISIBILITY. WE EXPLORE HOW ALPEGA TMS CAN HELP DIGITIZE AGRICULTURAL LOGISTICS PROCESSES

Agricultural transportation and supply chains

Visibility across agricultural supply

We carried out a survey among our clients in 2019 and found that for shippers visibility remains a key concern.

This is especially true when it comes to agricultural transportation. Much of the equipment used isn’t particularly modern and loading and unloading frequently takes place in difficult to access locations. This means agricultural transport resources are often wasted as a lack visibility makes proper planning a real issue.

To tackle this challenge, we have worked with a number of shippers to create our Real-Time Visibility Network. As the name suggests, it tracks transport from pick-up to delivery, using trucks’ telematics systems. It provides customized delay notifications and a dynamic ETA. It can be used for all transportation, ranging from grain transport to fertilizer, helping to rapidly digitalize agricultural supply chains.

At Alpega, we help companies in the agricultural sector:

  • Ensure safe and compliant transportation
  • Achieve full visibility over loading/ unloading
  • Control transportation costs and track carrier performance
  • Integrate with ERP solutions

Alpega TMS has proved an agile and collaborative tool for us. We are able to share lots information with stakeholders without wasting time on the phone and we’re looking forward to transitioning towards a control tower view for some of our key locations.

By streamlining sourcing, planning, execution, settlement and analytics, Alpega delivers seamless integration and global visibility for thousands of users worldwide. Our customers include some of the biggest names in the chemicals, mining and minerals industry.

Compliance and specialized agricultural transportation carriers

Many products that play an important role in the agricultural industry require specialized transportation. That’s as true of edible goods which need to be refrigerated, as it is of fertilizers which need to be handled with great care. These unique circumstances mean the agricultural industry is especially vulnerable to driver shortages.

Working with numerous companies in the agricultural sector (and the chemical sector which faces a few similar challenges), we have found that the key is better collaboration. Procuring the right carriers is essential to successful transport processes. In this context, the Alpega Hub provides access to a pool of 80,000+, pre-qualified carriers, each with their own specialties. A common rate card system ensures shippers know exactly who they are hiring and how much experience they have in the agricultural sector.
