Gebrüder Weiss relies on a new tour planning tool in local transport

The international transport and logistics company Gebrüder Weiss is optimizing its land transport processes with a new type of dispatching solution. The software integrates the graphic tour planning into the TISLOG telematics system used by Gebrüder Weiss, which has been specially adjusted for this purpose. This means that the entire process, from tour planning to loading and delivery, is handled over a single software platform. Dispatchers and drivers benefit from an intuitive graphical user interface that helps avoid process errors. Another advantage is the rapid availability of dynamic tour data, which facilitates well-founded decisions.

Delays caused by construction sites, traffic jams or delayed unloading during the tour are displayed immediately with updated ETA values ​​(ETA = Estimated Time of Arrival) enabling the dispatchers to react in time. The pilot location is the Maria Saal branch in Carinthia, which has been working with the new system since August 2020. The telematics integrated tour planning is planned to be rolled out across Europe at 46 locations in 14 countries over the next few years. Ultimately, around 200 dispatchers will work with the new solution and use it to control around 2,000 trucks.

The idea behind the project is to make the position and status data reported from the trucks available for dispatch without detours. The importance of telemetry data for dispatching has increased continuously in recent years. The geoposition status and the time deviations from the original route planning due to traffic jams or other delays are an important basis for economic decisions. Dispatchers often have to decide within seconds which vehicle is best suited for a pick-up order and what the consequences of a time discrepancy are. “Against this background, tour planning is much closer to telematics than to the classic functions of the transport management systems, whose core competence is billing,” explains TIS managing director Markus Vinke.

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
