Telematics / CargoLine
Fritz Group will rely on TIS in the future
Bocholt, April 12, 2021
In the future, Fritz GmbH & Co. KG will rely on the TISLOG mobile telematics solution from TIS for order management and tour planning in local transport. In the first step, the system is replacing the previous scheduling software before the 75 trucks driving in the CargoLine network are equipped with new mobile hand-held scanners. The project is scheduled to be completed by spring 2021 at the latest.
"For the future and the next steps in digitization, we feel that we are in very good hands at TIS, and we are not only convinced by the solution, but also by the fair and reliable communication," says forwarding and project manager Christian Czemmel. With the switch, Fritz wants to significantly simplify the processes for drivers and dispatchers. With TISLOG, the delivery and collection orders, which previously needed two separate solutions, can now be processed in a single system.
The drivers, mainly employed by subcontractors, receive the orders on their Zebra TC75 mobile scanners, which are equipped with the telematics app developed by TIS as part of the project. The app guides the drivers through the entire pick-up and delivery process, from navigation to paperless delivery receipts.
In addition, the optimized tour planning is going to reduce the number of kilometers driven per unloading point by eight to ten percent. "With TISLOG we will further improve the CO2 emissions per shipment", expects Czemmel, whose company is strongly committed to environmental protection. The Fritz Group was also involved in the certification for the calculation of the CO2 footprint per shipment on the basis of the DIN EN 16258-2013-03 standard published since March 2013.
Fritz GmbH & Co. KG is active in the areas of contract, transport and warehouse logistics and focuses on the automotive industry, chemicals, mechanical engineering, consumer goods and groceries. The service provider, based in Heilbronn, employs around 650 people and manages 85,000 square meters of storage space, of which 26,530 square meters are designed for hazardous substances. The company's own fleet includes 120 trucks. In addition, there are 130 vehicles from subcontractors who work for the Fritz Group on a daily basis.
The company, which was founded by Karl Fritz in 1938, is managed in the third generation by Wolfram Fritz. Fritz has been a partner in the CargoLine Logistics Network since 2011. CargoLine offers standardized and systematic general cargo transports as well as contract logistics solutions in Germany and Europe.
