fficient supply chains are a must, and have become even more headline-grabbing within the past 18 months. Every process from the first to the last mile must be set up and optimised with close attention paid to digital support tools that mean the difference between surviving and thriving. As part of the Solvares Group, Fast Lean Smart and Städtler offer solutions to optimise the entire value chain, including the often-missed 'middle mile' within the supply chain industry.
Logistics can be a Herculean task for a company. As companies grow, those who do not set themselves up optimally quickly drive up costs, risk bottlenecks, and find a reputional risk leads to missed sales. FLS and Städtler Logistik
provide expert solutions to help you optimise your processes along the entire supply chain and set them up efficiently.
OPTIMISING THE END-TO-END SUPPLY CHAIN
FLS and Städtler Logistik begun working together this year, under the umbrella of the Solvares Group
, Europe's leading resource optimisation body. The common goal of the group and its companies is to provide customers from industry, trade, and services with efficient solutions for the entire supply chain. These are primarily in the form of market-leading software for transport logistics, delivery planning and field service management.
How do you know you need to optimise your entire supply chain or just part of it? FLS and Städtler offer best-of-breed software and consulting from experts as well as other services from a single source, throughout your supply chain.
TRANSPARENCY AND FREIGHT CONTROL TO SAVE MONEY
At the beginning of the supply chain - the first mile
- is procurement and freight receipt. Städtler manages freight control and thus helps your company to save costs. Because freight invoices are complex. They require a great deal of checking and logistical expertise. Those who - as is the case in many companies - only check freight forwarding services on a random basis are literally leaving money on the street.
Städtler customers save an average of 10% on their direct and indirect freight costs every year because logistics experts uncover invoicing errors and enable effective controlling. This allows you to optimise logistics costs and thus also the supply chain. Städtler's freight auditing
covers all modes of transport from CEP (courier, express and parcel services) to sea freight.
OPTIMISED MIDDLE MILE THROUGH ROUTE AND TOUR PLANNING
Städtler is an expert in transport logistics in particular. If you need to schedule your own vehicle fleet or third-party vehicles - or both - TRAMPAS
is a market-leading software for route planning. With this solution, you can master the middle mile
, for example the route of the goods from the depot to the branch.
With TRAMPAS you bundle your transport tasks in the best possible way. You distribute the goods or orders optimally to drivers and vehicles and automatically take into account all delivery dates and restrictions. The sophisticated software offers such a range and depth of functions that you gain efficient and transparent route planning even within extremely complex scenarios.

OPTIMISING THE SUPPLY CHAIN - FOR A SUPERIOR CUSTOMER JOURNEY
In many industries, the distribution of goods ends with the delivery to a retail outlet, for example, into a garden centre. The customer completes the last mile
by taking the goods home. In other sectors, such as supermarkets, the goods are delivered to the customer. FLS has technologically leading solutions for this part of the logistics process.
With FLS software for scheduling and delivery
, you can offer end customers, B2B or B2C, a transparent and cost-optimised delivery process that ensures a first-rate customer experience.
