ATMS Global – Track & Trace

ATMS Global Track

Track and Trace

Control and visibility of stock and assets – any time, any place, anywhere

ATMS Global Track is a suite of modules that work hand in hand with our WMS or can be provided to work with your existing in house systems.

ATMS is designed to provide visibility and control across your supply chain and logistics operation, whether that is around the globe, around your country or around your yard. Visibility of stock, of orders, of consignments, of despatches and of assets.

ATMS Global Track can be a hosted ‘Cloud’ based solution or can run on your own IT hardware. Systems are designed to use Internet connectivity, including mobile communications.

Features include:

  • Paperless production control
  • Real time production and despatch recording
  • Material movement recording (including pallet, reel, coil)
  • Run time, set up time and downtime recording
  • Material usage and wastage reporting
  • Work in progress identification and control
  • Productivity and utilisation information
  • Traceability and quality control

 

ATMS Global Track Modules include remote labelling and remote warehousing.

The system links customers in the UK and elsewhere, typically with suppliers and logistics providers in the Far East and Eastern Europe across the Internet. Suppliers have full visibility of production orders and call off requirements. As the supplier works on each order he uses the system to produce unique carton labels for each carton produced. This in turn provides production information in almost real time back to the UK customer. The system can also be used to confirm carton dimensions (cube) and weight; conformance checks such as pack size, quality measurements etc can also be carried out and verified. The system can provide full traceability information and control over shelf life; expiry dates and best before information can be recoded. Full use is made of the GS1 global standards for labelling and identification.

As each carton is loaded into a container for sea freight or into a unit load device for air freight it can be scanned. In this way an electronic pre-advice, packing list and manifest can be created, linking the load to the container or ULD number. Further downstream the shipment can then be tracked simply by reference to the container / ULD number. On arrival in the UK warehouse container stripping is speeded up significantly through the provision of accurate advanced shipment notification (ASN) information.

The system is proving to have benefits in terms of improved visibility of production and shipments, improved traceability, reduction in grey market / counterfeit issues, reduced labour, improved accuracy, reduced errors.

Global Track modules include:

Remote Labelling - RemLab

RemLab provides labelling and tracking of production, anywhere in the world. Production / call off information is sent electronically, labels are then produced by the manufacturer for each carton or unit. Conformance information including weights and quantities can be recoded. Cartons can be scanned into shipping containers, providing an electronic ASN (advanced shipping note) and container manifest.

RemLab provides visibility of global production and shipping in near real time. Receiving and container stripping operations are speeded up dramatically and accuracy improves considerably.

Labelling is to the global GS1 standard, and supports both 1D and 2D bar codes.

  • The system links customers in the UK and elsewhere, typically with suppliers and logistics providers in the Far East and Eastern Europe across the Internet
  • Suppliers have full visibility of production orders and call off requirements
  • It typically uses GPRS for communications but can seamlessly transfer to Wifi where this exists
  • Can be used in any warehousing environment, warehouses with no communications infrastructure and even warehouses with no power
  • Allows companies to take on temporary warehouses as and when required
  • Also allows small outlying stores to be controlled, even if they are not manned
  • The system makes full use of GS1 standards for labelling and identification
  • The system is of course fully multilingual

AssetTrack

AssetTrack provides asset tracking and control using RFID or bar code asset identification. Hand held terminals or PC’s with tethered scanners can be used to record and track the asset. The module provides asset history, location, traceability, quality status, recording of revisions and maintenance, recording of disposal. Asset location can be recorded using the inbuilt GPS sensor that is often available in the latest generation of hand held computers.

Remote Warehousing - RemStock

RemStock is the stock tracking and recording module that centres around the use of the latest mobile hand held computers with in-built mobile phone Internet connections. Using a SIM card from any mobile phone network provider the system works across 3G or gprs networks. This means that zero IT infrastructure is required making the module ideal for the control of remote or temporary warehouses, open storage yards, unmanned stores, control of inventory at customer or supplier sites. Where WiFi access is available the module can automatically switch over to utilise this.

RemStock can be used for proof of delivery recording – using on screen signature capture, GPS location recording and where beneficial using the in-built camera provided by many hand held computers.

  • RemStock is an intelligent mobile application that runs on a wide variety of mobile devices
  • RemStock supports all the usual warehouse processes receipt, put away, pick and despatch
  • It typically uses GPRS for communications but can seamlessly transfer to Wifi where this exists
  • Can be used in any warehousing environment, warehouses with no communications infrastructure and even warehouses with no power
  • Allows companies to take on temporary warehouses as and when required
  • Also allows small outlying stores to be controlled, even if they are not manned
  • The system makes full use of GS1 standards for labelling and identification
  • The system is of course fully multilingual

Stock Flow 'Eye'

ATMoS Eye is the web portal for the ATMoS Global modules and for our ATMoS warehouse management system.  ATMoS Eye is fully password protected so that authorised users can only see information relevant to their operation.

Access to ATMoS Eye can be given to suppliers, customers, logistics providers and so on.  For instance customers can use ATMoS Eye to place call offs of material and stock. Suppliers can use ATMoS Eye to view outstanding orders and stock levels. Logistics providers can use ATMoS Eye to view despatch requirements and to update proof of delivery information. Documentation for customs clearance and declarations can be shared.
