Delivery Management
 

 

1

description

This system manages deliveries and package retrievals. Companies need to be able to effectively manage their delivery operations and have the right information at the right time. With this system, automated validations and warnings ensure that all packages are sent to the right place, eliminating handling errors. The solution uses mobile terminals that communicate via cellular and wireless networks. During delivery, package tracking is available in real time thanks to instant transmission of information. Touchscreen-based electronic billing and signature is a key feature of the system. It bumps the traceability needed for this type of industry up one notch. A navigation system can be integrated for more efficient movements.

benefits

  • Increase delivery efficiency and speed.
  • Eliminate handling errors.
  • Send information in real time.
  • Obtain electronic invoices and signatures via touchscreen.
  • Navigation gets drivers to destination faster.
  • Optimize routes and track the progress of deliveries in real time via a web interface due to integration with external route optimization systems.

Vehicle access control system
 

 

1

description

This system controls access to vehicles at sites via automatic detection. It also makes it possible to check resource pairings based on your needs (e.g., truck and trailer; truck and gas pump; truck and driver). The use of RFID identifiers on vehicles and related equipment prevents errors by detecting poor combinations in real time. Validation points are established to reflect your needs.

RFID readers must be carefully positioned so that the detection beam provides accurate readings. Information is saved via a connection to the company’s database to refer to as needed, whether for traceability or to stay informed of user movements or operations.

A controller developed by Epsilia, customized to your needs and easily integrated to different components and interfaces is available to minimize human interventions at the site.

benefits

  • Input and output management.
  • Eliminate errors of associations of truck and trailer.
  • Detect potential fraud.
  • Reduce costs related to site security.
  • Real-time access to and validation of information.
  • Reduce manual data entry and minimize risks of errors.
3

specifications

  • Integration with a range of external interfaces: scales, automated barriers, cameras, counters.
  • Use of industrial computers for outdoor needs.
  • Automatic detection.
  • Entry on touchscreens.
  • Our RFID Manager module manages RFID logistics, identifiers and specific equipment with your information system.
Fuel management
 

 

1

description

Using RFID technology to identify trucks for fuel management makes it possible to obtain accurate, automated tracking of the refuelling process. RFID readers detect and validate the presence of trucks at the fuel pumps via a chip on the truck’s windshield. A computerized system controls fueling at the pump and manages fuel volume during transactions. This information is made available to the enterprise management system using a flexible communication protocol that can be adapted to the client.

2

benefits

  • Automate the process to eliminate errors.
  • Manage errors in fuel type.
  • Detect potential fraud.
  • Manage RFID logistics, identifiers and specific equipment, with your information system.

RFID Manager software
 

 

1

description

The demand for RFID (radio frequency identification) technology has increased sharply. RFID technology can rationalize your logistics chain and manage traceability in real time. It also facilitates operational and inventory management.

The RFID Manager application makes it possible to parameterize RFID equipment and manage associations and movements of chips in a defined process and environment.

RFID Manager is middleware designed to meet the needs of manufacturers, processors, distributors, logistics providers and transporters that want to implement RFID technologies without sacrificing investments already made in their traceability system.

2

benefits

  • Developed for easy integration with your information system.
  • Parameterable for your environment and needs.
  • Handles logistics and coordination of reading.
  • Reading performance ratio.
  • Real-time information on equipment.
