The topics of this issue

Loading equipment management in the TISLOG logistics software

In logistics, loading equipment and containers such as pallets, lattice boxes, drums or crates are indispensable for the transport of goods. But for many companies it is difficult to keep track of these loading devices. Freight forwarders therefore often use a software-controlled solution for loading equipment management, such as the solution from TIS GmbH, for more control over their loading equipment.

Are you looking for efficient management of your containers and pallets?
Then our loading equipment management in the TISLOG logistics software is the perfect solution for you.

Digital pre-trip inspection with TISLOG - paperless and easy

The digital pre-trip inspection in our TISLOG logistics software is a fully-fledged replacement for paper documentation and easy to use for drivers thanks to its intuitive guidance through the process. For complete documentation, the digital pre-trip inspection can then be archived as a PDF document including the driver's signature.

Learn more about the processing of the digital departure control in TISLOG and some new features in more detail.

De-minimis funding 2021 – things to consider

This year, again, the Federal Office for Goods Transport (BAG) started the De-minimis funding for companies involved in road haulage with heavy commercial vehicles. Through this, the Federal Office promotes the optimization of the vehicle fleet with regard to safety and the environment.

General information on the amount of funding
The Federal Office for Goods Transport is funding a maximum of 80% of the total costs for eligible measures. The maximum amount of funding per company is 33,000 euros per year or a maximum of 100,000 euros in three consecutive tax years.

Which optimization measures are supported?
There are various measures that are funded. These include, for example, telematics systems or software with which the data from the digital speedometer can be managed, evaluated and archived.
TIS Technische Informationssysteme GmbH also offers such systems.

3G shutdown in Germany - time frame and effects

Slowly but surely, the 3G network in Germany has seen its best days. With the expansion of 4G and 5G networks, which enable significantly faster data transmission, 3G is used less and less. For this reason, three major network providers in Germany will switch off 3G this year. Older generations of mobile devices for mobile order management will also be affected by this shutdown.

In this article, you will also find out today which hardware that was previously available through our portfolio is impacted by the 3G shutdown.
