Control Tower generates an overview of all your processes and information streams. This contains e.g. shipment locations, estimated time of arrival and loading and unloading times. We generate this by combining data from ordering systems, planning systems, board computer systems, traffic information systems and many other sources.
The decision support capability of the control tower uses the combined data to notify your organization and provide a clear overview of your performance.

All information you need for invoices
For invoicing it is important to find anomalies that have to be paid by customers. For example, it can happen that loading takes longer than expected and consequently the unloading window at the unloading address is missed. Control Tower keeps track of the execution. It provides a list with all differences, making sure you ask the right amount of money to your customer.
We work with the invoicing
system that fits your business
Logistics providers can combine orders of several customers to improve efficiency. However, invoicing systems can differ, such as paying for the distance that is travelled per customer or paying as a percentage of used space.
These schemes can make up the invoicing. NexusZs control tower can works with these different invoicing schemes.

"Does the executed transport meet the quotes set by the sales department?"
"What are the blind spots in the transport network of an organization?"
"We anticipate on developing situations such as late trucks, loading or unloading takes to long and reversing the order in visiting addresses."
"We create overview of the performance of transport over time through so-called lane sheets that show your Key Performance Indicators."
