OMK Automates Cargo Transportation by Road
United Metallurgical Company OMK launched road transport automation project in mid-2020 in cooperation with European leader in the development of logistics management solutions Transporeon. In last 6 months of 2020, OMK doubled the volume of cargo transportation by road to 30 thousand trips, 20% of the total volume of cargo transportation, and reduced the planned time for searching for road carriers to send goods to customers by eight times from 72 to 9 hours.
On the basis of the Transporeon platform, OMK has automated work with transport requests, electronic timetables, and monitors the quality of carriers' work. OMK now has a pool of more than 200 reliable shipping partners who daily deliver raw materials and ship finished products from all production sites of the company from small valves to large sized parts and large-diameter pipes. By using new automated tools and expanding the pool of carriers, OMK customers receive high quality delivery services at market prices.
In addition, at the beginning of 2021, OMK enterprises launched a new digital service in test mode delivery monitoring, which will allow the company's customers to promptly receive information about the status and time of delivery of products to them, as is the case in retail segments.
