IER’s “Track & Trace” business unit, established at the end of 2015, will now use its technical and sales resources to market and integrate Kratzer Automation’s “cadis” TMS solution intended for fleets with more than 200 drivers operated by its haulage, courier, retail and logistics clients. “The ultimate aim of this work is to submit the best offer and highest-quality service to serve our customers and become a dominant key player in this industry quickly”, said Christophe Agaësse, the director of IER Track & Trace since February 2016.
At the same time, Kratzer Automation France, which employs a score of people and harvested a turnover of around €16,000,000 in 2015, is to refocus on pre-sales and development (whilst retaining a commercial interest in the cadis system, intended for chargers). For his part, Jacques Trépant, Kratzer Automation’s executive operations director for Western Europe, states “By working with IER we shall be able to make our solution part of more global projects in many developing industries which cross the boundaries of transport, which will automatically allow us to expand our range”.
Cadis is a complete operational road TMS (it does not manage the administrative aspect of transport): optimisation, geolocalisation, POD (proof of delivery), circulation, tracking, yard management, Android mobile support, rule engine and calculation of ETA/PTA (estimated time of arrival/projected time available). In France, it is used by clients such as Ciblex, Schenker, Gefco, Eurotranspharma and TNT.
