SCALAR simplifies logistics with enhanced cargo visibility

In today’s fast-paced logistics landscape, staying ahead of the curve is essential. That’s why we’re excited to announce the collaboration between SCALAR’s state-of-the-art orchestration platform and Shippeo’s real-time transportation visibility solution. 

SCALAR: maestro of logistics

Imagine a symphony where every note is perfectly timed and every instrument harmonizes flawlessly. That’s SCALAR—a digital solution designed to automatically optimize scheduling, routing, dispatching, and field service management for both cargo and passenger transport. SCALAR uses advanced algorithms, dynamic optimization, and machine learning to ensure that the right vehicle is sent to the right place at the right time, all in real-time. 

The secret sauce

But SCALAR is more, offers more. It leverages ZF’s extensive proprietary vehicle data, including insights from braking systems, transmissions, and trailer diagnostics. This data gives fleet managers unprecedented foresight, allowing them to anticipate and address issues such as safety checks or vehicle breakdowns before they disrupt operations. 

New instrument in SCALAR’s orchestra: Shippeo's real-time visibility

The latest addition to SCALAR’s orchestration platform is the integration of Shippeo’s visibility solution. Shippeo is renowned for providing real-time visibility to shippers who transport goods by air, water, and road. By integrating Shippeo’s solution, SCALAR now offers carriers a continuously updated Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA), derived from over 50 parameters and tapping into historical trip data and live feeds from various telematics, transport management systems (TMS), and warehouse management systems (WMS). 

Benefits for SCALAR customers

  1. Accurate ETAs: Carriers receive more precise ETAs across the entire supply chain, reducing the risk of Service Level Agreement (SLA) penalties. 
  2. Subcontractor performance: Fleets can assess the punctuality of subcontractors, even those without telematics, minimizing SLA penalties. 

Additional advantages

For carriers relying solely on trailer tracking solutions, this integration is a game-changer. Real-time ETA visibility now extends to both trailers and trucks, ensuring seamless coordination and minimizing surprises. Shippeo’s solution also visualizes CO2 emissions per transport order, empowering carriers to make environmentally conscious choices. 

By integrating Shippeo’s advanced tracking technologies across road, air, and ocean shipments, SCALAR provides carriers with unprecedented visibility. Real-time insights flow effortlessly, like a well-conducted orchestra, allowing logistics providers to optimize routes, minimize delays, and enhance overall supply chain efficiency. 

Leadership insights

Hjalmar Van Raemdonck, Vice President SCALAR, explains, “Our collaboration with Shippeo simplifies modern logistics. We’re adding an extra layer of visibility to our customers’ fleets, enabling them to orchestrate with precision.” 

Pierre Khoury, CEO & Co-founder of Shippeo, adds, “By leveraging Shippeo’s advanced visibility platform, SCALAR will be empowered to optimize carrier transportation capacity, ensuring on-time delivery at the best possible price.”
