“Service is the best differentiator”
Explore our capabilities and solutions
Our clients in this industry reap the benefits of our vast experience and expertise in transportation, warehousing and distribution management, together with our additional specialist capabilities in the consumer goods value chain. These include distribution, and debtor’s management.
ASML Customers have discovered that we are the preferred outsourced distributor that has the infrastructure, wisdom and care to deal with the various challenges such as compliance, distribution, imports and exports, storage and reverse logistics.
ASML Logistics utilises a self-owned and self-managed fleet of vehicles country wide. Our fleet and drivers are supported with state-of-the-art tracking and in-vehicle security.
We adopted and integrated advanced manufacturing and distribution technology to create a completely different approach to the industries we serve. This includes:
- Warehouse Automation
- Artificial Intelligence and robotics
- In-House ERP and satellite tracking systems
The key differentiator within ASML Logistics is through the use of these three technologies.
Robotics and artificial intelligence will replace most of the human labour – instigating the transformation for technology usage.
Working alongside our clients, we are adept at identifying the constantly shifting challenges, risks and opportunities in this industry. We work closely with our clients to develop customised solutions to mitigate risks, and minimise their impact on costs, service delivery and operational capacity.
People, Process and Technology
Our unique, highly efficient and sustainable solutions incorporate the key components of people, process and technology. In this industry, accuracy, transparency and efficiency need tight integration in order to limit over, under and incorrect supply and damages.
We know that the effectiveness – and related costs – of quality control is determined by three principles: time to detect defect, time to correct defect, and the quality of corrective action.
Artificial Intelligence, Warehouse Automation Systems and Fleet Management Systems assist in ensuring we remain sustainable, efficient and effective.
Enterprise Resource Platform
ASML Logistics has developed an in-house ERP system that not only assists in processing invoices and control but also allows live tracking of deliveries and proof of deliveries (EPOD). This platform has been integrated with the warehouse management system and fleet management systems to optimise control and management. The customized platform enables seamless integration to the needs of each and every customer. We have further developed an easy-to-use Customer Information System (CIS) which provides real-time information to the customer based on the three technologies that have been implemented to provide such information.
Warehouse Management System (WMS)
WMS provides the same benefits as our Enterprise Resource Platform, with more accuracy. It is linked directly to the warehouse automation system. Tracking therefore becomes cost-effective and valuable through the Warehouse Control System (WCS).
Our personalised and innovative solutions are developed by carefully considering each and every stage of valuable assets, developing sustainable connections between people and technology. Adopting an integrated strategic approach and looking at your delivery network holistically, our warehousing and distribution solutions are smart, streamlined and efficient.
Our aim is to design and manage or operate customised warehouse solutions that deliver bottom-line benefits by helping you to be more productive, your organisation more efficient, and your business more agile. We implement collaborative techniques, provide tools for measuring success, and advanced analysis, which demonstrates our original thinking.
