Artificial Intelligence for Smart Logistics

Dynamic Real-Time Optimization of Logistics

Smart Logistics

In concepts such as Industry 4.0, Made in China - China 2025, and Industrial Internet, logistics is an essential factor of success. It connects decentralized autonomous smart factories and production plants. In addition, it synchronizes processes, material flow, and information flow beyond company boundaries in the entire supply chain. Thus, efficient and reliable logistics at short notice with guaranteed transit times just-in-time and just-in-sequence is becoming increasingly important.

Solutions

The software solutions by XTL Kommunikatiossysteme handle the increasing complexity, decentralization, and interdependencies between processes. They consider individual objective functions and requirements for optimizing resource utilization.

Take advantage of digitalization: Use all relevant information in your decision-making, improve your process synchronization in real-time, and complete more jobs in shorter time at reduced cost.

We provide customized solutions for precise analyses, the identification of optimization potential, as well as automated planning and scheduling. To maximize your efficiency, we support you by adaptation and integration of dynamic dispatch.

Our scheduling system continuously optimizes your tours based on up-to-date information and current environmental circumstances. It supports dynamic changes of order and vehicle data even during transport such as addresses and time windows. In addition, it can be individualized with little effort to consider all relevant planning constraints in real time.

Technology

Our expertise lies in applying approaches from Artificial Intelligence and autonomous control which is implemented into your processes by using multiagent-based technology.

As a result, the planning and control of your logistics adapt continuously and automatically to internal and external environmental changes and requirements at runtime. Thus, the system provides impressive flexibility, robustness, and scalability.

The applied planning and scheduling algorithms are the result of many years of research in cooperation with the Center for Computing and Communication Technologies (TZI) at the University of Bremen and leading companies in the logistics sector.

Our innovative approach to optimize planning and scheduling of transport processes was awarded at the 33rd International Supply Chain Conference with the Science Award for Supply Chain Management of the German Logistics Association (BVL).
