FactoryWorxTM Logistics Management is an exceptional digital platform for managing and optimizing logistics and transportation related to producing and delivering products to customers in the most efficient manner.
It features three major capabilities:
FactoryWorxTM Transportation Management System (TMS) manages the physical journey of the product from the loading dock through production lines, to customer delivery. With powerful tracking and tracing capability it streamlines transportation requirements across product life cycle, analysing costs from multiple carriers to help you reduce costs, improve operational efficiency, and enhance customer satisfaction.
In addition, the FactoryWorxTM Chain of Responsibility (COR) functionality provides advanced tracking of product transportation along the entire supply chain to reduce the potential cost and risk legal and ethical compliance.
The FactoryWorxTM Load Builder is an advanced functionality of FactoryWorxTM Artificial Intelligence solution. Its purpose is to deliver maximum cost savings and efficiency by eliminating the cost of labour. It is used in fully automated production and storage facilities, i.e. “lights-out” or “dark factories” replacing human labour with robotics.

Today, transportation and logistics are not just the major cost drivers in product manufacturing but also the major risk to potential brand reputation. Investing in the advanced FactoryWorxTM Logistics Management system with a proven, built-in capability to significantly reduce these two factors is a smart and easy choice.
OPTIMISED & AUTOMATED TRANSPORTATION PROCESS
Efficient transportation depends on multiple factors, that vary in the degree to which the company can easily control them.
Focused on contracts and collaboration with carriers, the FactoryWorxTM Transportation Management module manages pricing and tariffs and aligns it with customer requirements and other factors to determine the optimum necessary cost of transport of goods. FactoryWorx software will automatically make these decisions and choose the best carrier.
FactoryWorxTM Transportation Management System (TMS) utilises data from the supply chain to enable predictive production scheduling in response parts availability and other changes in the supply chain.
Through its ERP integration, it also provides insights on a more granular level of materials control, tactical production and materials planning, and quality control.
FactoryWorxTM Transportation Management functionality enables manufacturers to optimise the cost of finished products from ordering materials to delivering finished products to customers by digitising and providing accurate and pre-emptive information about stock levels of materials and finished products.
PRODUCTION ACCOUNTABILITY GOES BEYOND PRODUCT DELIVERY
Road laws called “Chain of Responsibility” state that everyone in the supply is responsible if they breach or fail to actively prevents breaches of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL). The COR law extends to preventing or reducing potential harm or loss (risks) to yourself and others.
Managing (controlling) these risks requires that businesses recognize and consider all potential dangers and satisfactorily reduce or avoid them before they occur.
The FactoryWorxTM Chain of Responsibility module uses data analytics and provides tracking of events during the transportation of goods along the entire supply chain to ensure visibility of compliance to road laws called “Chain of Responsibility”. It is essential in minimising and eliminating potential risks and costs.
Integration with ERP and other Business Information Systems, including Supply Chain data enables FactoryWorxTM Logistics Management to leverage connected data and advanced analytics to optimise cost of transportation and trace Chain of Responsibility information. This data includes the following elements that inform decisions for Logistics:
The biggest advantage of adopting FactoryWorxTM Logistics Management is that it integrates with the comprehensive MES suite of intelligent production data. The two FactoryWorxTM MES modules that complement and enhance Logistics are Inventory Management and Warehouse Management.
Integration with Inventory Management leverages data information as it moves in real-time from or to stock and ensures accuracy though stocktakes and cycle counts to inform transportation module about any requirements and trigger optimised stock transportation planning and execution.
Integration with Warehouse Management leverages data from all areas of production and is available from a range of devices. The major feature of this integration is the maximum accuracy of data available for production:
PRODUCTION ACCOUNTABILITY GOES BEYOND PRODUCT DELIVERY
The FactoryWorxTM Load Builder is an advanced functionality of FactoryWorxTM Artificial Intelligence solution. It delivers maximum cost savings and efficiency in “lights-out” or “dark factories”, which refers to fully automated, robotics driven production and storage facilities, without any human labour on premises.
One of the most valued benefits of FactoryWorxTM MES modular solutions is flexibility. If you are not ready to go full throttle into Industry 4.0 transformation, you can easily adopt the complete FactoryWorxTM Logistics Management or roll it out one functionality at a time. Both options are equally viable depending on your situation and needs.
Each Module is an independent mini-MES Module that enables deploying automation and efficiencies where they are most needed.
