The transport and logistics group Gebrüder Weiss will equip its drivers, warehouse, and handling staff with a total of 3,500 new data terminals by the end of the year. The hardware exchange has been started by the long-established company in March 2020 with the goal of converting all of its mobile devices from the "Windows CE Embedded Handheld" operating system to Android, thereby setting the course for the future. The purchase decision was preceded by a six-month selection and test phase with the employees actively involved. The Zebra TC77 touch computer for tour processing in local transport and the Zebra MC3300 barcode scanner for warehouse logistics and handling were the winning models. The supplier is TIS GmbH. With TISLOG the company has also developed the appropriate software as well as special handle and housing accessories for the hardware.

So far, over 90 percent of the almost 2,000 drivers have already been equipped with the new devices. In terms of inventory turnover, this value means 1,200 devices compared to around 1,500 employees. The planned parallel operation of the two hardware generations until December 2021 is no problem. The same applies to the software installed on the devices. While the new Android scanners work with TISLOG mobile Enterprise, the old Windows handhelds run with the previous solution PSV3. TISLOG is a powerful logistics software for transport and warehousing that can be used to monitor and control the flow of goods.

TIS GmbH has been a telematics and hardware supplier to Gebrüder Weiss for almost 30 years, and the cooperation is scrutinized with every investment. The mobile device management TISLOG MDM developed by TIS enables the central and efficient organization of the TISLOG mobile software. This includes configuration, distribution, protection, and analysis. The module sets up a kiosk mode on the mobile devices, which protects the operating system against unauthorized access and manipulation.

Another argument in favor of TIS were the in-house development accessories from the TISPLUS brand to supplement the mobile computers. The MC3300 barcode scanners used in the warehouse or turnover are equipped with special scan handles. There is also a housing solution for the location transponders, developed by TIS as well.

Gebrüder Weiss is the oldest transport and logistics company in the world and is still family-owned today (Weiss and Jerie families). The history of the logistics service provider goes back over 500 years. Today Gebrüder Weiss (headquarters: Lauterach / Vorarlberg) employs 7,400 people who generated sales of EUR 1.77 billion in 2020. The global Gebrüder Weiss network includes 170 company-owned locations in 35 countries.

In 2020, Gebrüder Weiss land transport handled 14.8 million shipments. In sea freight the volume was 141,000 standard containers (TEU) and in air freight 53,000 tons. More than 57 million parcels were transported via DPD Austria (co-partner Gebrüder Weiss parcel service, GWP).

The central IT department of the global company is located in Kennelbach / Vorarlberg. From here, not only branches of Gebrüder Weiss in Austria are controlled, but also the worldwide network of the transport and logistics company. More information at www.gw-world.com
