Irrespective of whether you’re working for industrial companies, trading businesses or logistics-service providers – you as the loading agent often face the problem of being unable to provide customers with precise information about the status of their jobs. Reliable reports about the current location of the commissioned forwarder and the goods being transported or about the times of arrival at destinations are unavailable.

catkin places a communications and information portal at your disposal that completely fills this gap and improves services in the fields of both outbound and inbound logistics. The interfacing of all transport companies permits the consistent tracking (including subcontractors) of rail carriages, containers, trucks and trailers – all over the world. The portal also possesses applications for organising the dispatching of all available mobile resources and for controlling capacity utilisation. Functions for checking invoicing also ensure that transporters are initially only able to bill the firmly agreed costs. The system does, however, offer the opportunity for them to use the app to contact dispatchers in the event of any discrepancies and to send photos as documentation when necessary – comparable with WhatsApp and just as simple. This information is and will remain visible in the job.

“catkin ist ein sehr modernes Portal, welches sich flexibel an die Geschäftsprozesse anpasst. catkin stellt für uns die Zukunft dar. Auch bei der Zusammenarbeit mit dem Hersteller proLOGiT bezüglich der Konfiguration und des Anschließens unserer Systeme an das Portal haben wir sehr gute Erfahrungen gemacht.”
