(b) RFID Based Access Control System

When you are in the manufacturing business, frieght charges consume a huge chunk of your budget. Your transportation needs may meet mostly by a bevy unorganized truckers. The prices they charge may essentially controlled by truck unions or local trucker cartels. They practically dictate frieght rates. Truckers don’t always commit to a job and often simply don’t show up. And when they do, the amount of time it took for them to load up, deliver and return take too long.

Companies need to reduce the cost of frieght by breaking the trucker’s cartel and improving a truck’s turnaround time.

SolutionsHead introduces a freight bidding system with an RFID based vehicular access control system. The bidding system allows transporters to bid for frieght on various routes. A bid for a consignment is open for 30 minutes, after which the lowest bid wins. The company defines basic frieght rates on a per-metric-ton-per-kilometer basis. This way you can take control back in your hands.

(a) GPS Based Online Truck Dispatch System

Cement companies carries out limestone mining and heavy moving machinery to carry limestone from mines to crusher. They face challenges to minimize the utilization of heavy machinery, which is dogged by lack of automated fuel management and lack of automatic collection, storage and analysis of data.

SolutionsHead introduces a mining command and control room along with GPS Based Online Truck Dispatch System to carry out dynamic allocation of dumpers to excavators in real time thus reducing time lost in waiting at excavators. The entire mining time can now be monitored at Central Control Room(CCR), where automatic alerts are installed.
