Amerongen Kamphuis live with Boltrics’ TMS
Amerongen Kamphuis has been working since April 25th, 2016 with 3PL Dynamics, Boltrics software for logistics service providers. Amerongen Kamphuis has used both the ERP (financial administration) and the TMS and WMS modules of the software.
Amerongen Kamphuis is the result of a merger between Amerongen temperature-controlled transport (established in 1940) and Kamphuis Transport & Expeditie BV. (established in 1950). With a fleet of about 100 lorries and a European network of carriers, their strength lies in groupage services for temperature-controlled food products.
For the transport- and financial administration, transport planning and for the operation of the onboard computers, separate software systems were used. This caused problems in providing information to customers and when looking at management information. Thanks to 3PL Dynamics, Amerongen Kamphuis now has one integrated system that, in addition to Finance and Transport, supports Cross Dock, Warehouse, and VAL activities.
“Because 3PL Dynamics is constantly being developed, we are no longer in the situation that the software is outdated, and after 10 years, for example, only full re-implementation is sufficient. Choosing for Boltrics, makes it possible to check and control the registration step, “said Jan Kamphuis, Managing Director Amerongen Kamphuis.
The implementation has been carried out in a very short period of time of 3 months. After the start on February 4, both the financial administration and the transport and warehousing departments have successfully gone live on Monday, April 25th. This in combination with the latest version of Ortec Routing and Dispatch (ORD) software, but also a direct integration with Trimble’s newest generation board computers. “As Amerongen Kamphuis we made a major step forward and assured we can make use of the latest software technology. This enables us to respond to the information needs of our customers – now and in the future, with which we want to distinguish ourselves permanently, “said Jan Kamphuis.
TMS coupled with Ortec planning system
Amerongen Kamphuis makes use of Ortec’s software for the planning of trips and drivers. By seamlessly integrating 3PL Dynamics via web services with Ortec, the information about orders and scheduling is real-time visible in the TMS of 3PL Dynamics and in Ortec.
