A new world of Transport Logistics is emerging rapidly - seize the opportunities
Transport logistics are central to the successful operation of each waste and recycling business, representing a significant portion of overall costs as well as having an enterprise-wide impact on key business metrics such as health and safety, customer service, sustainability, and profitability.
Exponential technologies such as the Internet of Things, Big Data, 5G as well as new environmental regulations designed to decarbonize transport are creating both opportunities and challenges for our industry in equal measure.
This evolving landscape calls for a new generation solution to integrate, automate and optimize your transport operations – the AMCS Transport Management System.
The AMCS Transport Management is an integral part of the AMCS Platform solution, thus providing an integrated solution for transport as well as leveraging the full rich functionality of the Platform including our Enterprise Management, Vehicle Technology, Mobile Workforce and Intelligent Optimization solutions.
AMCS Transport Management System for the Waste and Recycling Industry
Our Transport Management System was designed for the specific challenges and requirements of the waste and recycling industry.
It offers highly automated and integrated functionality to manage every aspect of transport including planning, rostering, dispatch, live tracking, route optimization and driver mobile application.
It includes an intuitive and modern user interface to facilitate ease and speed of planning. It exploits best-in-class technology such as embedded maps as well as a distance calculation component to arrive at feasible routes and accurate service times for each stop.
It delivers enhanced productivity through increased automated planning, the optimization of the use of assets (vehicles, containers, etc.) and resources, improved operational control and visibility for both planning and during service execution, improved driver safety as well as delivering superior customer service.
AMCS Transport Management System – the Smart Transport Solution
AMCS Transport Management System is integrated with our Enterprise Management system so transport planners benefit from full access to all enterprise data and supporting integrated workflows to provide maximum visibility and control. The AMCS Transport Management System allows fleet operators to plan, execute, monitor, optimize and analyse all aspects of their transport operations. Transport Planning is a challenging activity for planners who have to manage multiple priorities such as maximizing fleet and driver productivity, delivering on time customer service, ensuring the highest levels of safety, meeting driver regulations while minimizing costs.

Integrated Resource Management:
The planner can plan effectively with foreknowledge of any resource shortages.Read more
Integrated Resource Management:
The planner has access to a calendar showing the future availability of all staff and vehicles which reflects any planned absences, maintenance schedules, etc. The planner can work in daily, weekly, and monthly views to identify and resolve any scheduling issues and constraints so as to ensure that dispatch can readily assign drivers and helpers to the available tracks as needed.
This functionality means that the planner can plan effectively with foreknowledge of any resource shortages. Our Rostering module can also interface to your existing vehicle and staff resource systems.
Provides a clear view of how the routes will be driven on the map and with an accurate timeline to ensure that the route is feasible.Read more
The planner can review and edit each route in a list view and on a map presentation. The planner can edit each route, dragging and dropping stops across routes and making any necessary planning refinements, and view the results on the embedded maps before release to AMCS Mobile.
This planning and mapping function avails of an integrated distance calculation component which shows how routes are planned in a timeline view.
Thus, the dispatcher has a clear view of how the routes will be driven on the map and with an accurate timeline to ensure that the route is feasible. Our embedded mapping software can also support special vehicle attributes, ensuring that the planned routes follow rules for vehicle-specific attributes such as length, weight, height, and width.
Our suite of embedded Route Optimization services are designed to make it easy for the planner to optimize the transport operations including both Commercial Round and Roll Off services.Read more
Our suite of embedded Route Optimization services are designed to make it easy for the planner to optimize the transport operations including both Commercial Round and Roll Off services.
For example, our one click sequence optimization feature can perform in seconds the daily task of sequencing orders in a route efficiently taking into consideration constraints like site access times.
This optimization feature can be run before and during live route execution. Our advanced optimization algorithms are designed to provide ease of use for planners combined with the most efficient outcomes from a cost , mileage and driver time perspective.
The dispatcher can track the execution of the routes in real-time and make adjustments where necessaryRead more
Once the finalized routes have been submitted to the drivers AMCS Mobile in-cab application, then the dispatcher can track the execution of the routes in real-time and make adjustments where necessary such as assigning new orders and responding to unforeseen events like delays and breakdowns.
The dispatcher can also carry out live optimizations of routes to reflect order changes such as emergency orders.
Driver Mobile Application:
This mobile order management application enables digital schedule updates, customer information access and many moreRead more
Driver Mobile Application:
Our in-cab AMCS Mobile is easy to use and is fully integrated with our Transport Management System. This mobile order management application enables digital schedule updates, customer information access, proof of service, driver debrief and real-time addition of ad hoc orders, intelligent turn-by-turn navigation, additional revenue capture and much more.
Our Business Intelligence suite is designed to convert the rich transport data into actionable insights.Read more
Our Business Intelligence suite is designed to convert the rich transport data generated by our Transport Management System components into actionable insights.
In addition, all the driver, route performance metrics and KPI dashboards are always at the planners fingertips.
