Mobile Web for Transport & Distribution Overview Mobile Solutions Success Stories

Mobile Web

The AMCS Mobile Web solution is a browser-based mobile application designed to operate on a tablet or a smartphone and to communicate directly with AMCS’s planning and optimization systems. Our planning and optimization systems are equipped with advanced automatic scheduling algorithms, which assist in handling a large number of variables and at the same time process large volumes of planning data quickly and accurately.

One of the primary functions of AMCS Mobile Web is the ability to receive route lists and order details from the planning system and the ability to send status messages back to the AMCS planning system as the stops on the route list are executed. These status messages make it possible to continuously re-calculate routes and inform customers about potential changes to the plan.

On top of the core functionalities comes a range of other functionalities enabling the user to fill out reports, take and access pictures, capture signatures, make scans, capture GPS traces, and much more.

AMCS Mobile Web is built on cutting-edge web technologies which means that the application can be opened from any smartphone, tablet or PC device with newer browser versions. Thereby, the user does not have to be concerned about having a Windows, iOS or Android operating system.

The system has solid offline capabilities as AMCS Mobile Web is using the persistence layer of the browser and the local storage database on the device.

Moreover, web browsers and applications available for smartphones and tablets are developing rapidly and are easy to integrate. This, for example, means that a request for GPS navigation between stops from the route list in AMCS Mobile Web can go directly to a commoditized navigation application. Numerous other straightforward integration options are available.

Mobile fat client

AMCS Mobile Fat is directly coupled with AMCS’s planning and optimization systems. Our planning and optimization systems are equipped with advanced automatic scheduling algorithms, which assist in handling a large number of variables and at the same time process large volumes of planning data quickly and accurately.

The core functionality AMCS Mobile Fat is the reception of route lists and order details from the planning system and the ability to send status messages back to the AMCS planning system as the stops on the route list are executed. These status messages make it possible to continuously re-calculate routes and inform customers about potential changes to the plan.

On top of the core functionalities comes a range of other functionalities which enable the user to fill out reports, take and access pictures, capture signatures, make scans, capture GPS traces, and much more.

AMCS Mobile Fat is built directly into the AMCS Fleet Planner planning system itself. Therefore, no integration is needed and the two system parts share the same data model. This means that AMCS Mobile Fat runs on a mobile device with (most likely an embedded) PC Windows operating system and if the central planning system is configured, this instantly applies to the mobile client as well.

This way the planner and the driver are using the same system. The only difference is that the application is presented in different ways, and the driver only has access to limited parts of the system.

The advantage is that the advanced functionality planning of a system can be used from the mobile device. Hence, the driver can (if allowed) for example have a local order bank; insert new orders in the route list; use sequence optimizations and the like. Moreover, the application has very strong capabilities within local integration to advanced vehicle equipment.

Features Overview

  • Send daily route lists to mobile device
  • View list & map of scheduled route and orders
  • View detailed customer information, i.e. access notes, phone numbers, etc.
  • Change the order of stops and make status changes to the trip and stop
  • Plan and/or change orders on the fly
  • Easily add information to an order and capture signatures, photos, etc.
  • Capture GPS for status change and unforeseen events
  • Send messages and documents to and from driver tablet/smartphone in real time
  • Recalculate routes and thus take unforeseen incidents and delays into account
  • Store status messages for delivery documentation
  • Access local order bank; insert new orders in the route list; optimise sequence, etc.
  • Integrate locally to advanced vehicle equipment.

Major benefits

  • Reduction of mileage, driving time and number of trucks
  • Increased and steady service levels
  • Improved delivery accuracy
  • Ease of planning for the office staff

Addressing the driver shortage with technology

The long queues, fuel rationing and closure of forecourts recently in the UK shouldn’t have surprised anyone in logistics. This was the result not of a shortage of petrol, but of drivers to transport it. The shortage is a historical problem, exacerbated by Brexit and covid-19.
