Management system

What are management systems in logistics?

As in most industries, there are also systems in logistics that help with the planning and execution of various logistics processes. It does not matter whether the transport is carried out by ship, truck or airplane. There are also such systems for the storage of goods, for example warehouse management systems.

What functions do management systems have in logistics?

Management systems in logistics are always adapted to their exact purpose. There are therefore a large number of such systems, all of which are very individual. However, most management systems have the following core functions:

  • Location management
  • Material master data management
  • Geodata management
  • Partner management (customers, suppliers, branch offices, etc.)
  • Order entry
  • Transportation planning
  • Freight cost calculation
  • Track and Tracing

Furthermore, management systems can also have additional functions that are more specialized in different logistics areas. This includes, for example, the option of customs clearance or returns processing. Quotation entry is also considered an additional function.
