50 logistics experts were at Volkswagen Logistics Conference where Audi’s Ingolstadt factory won the 2014 Volkswagen Group Logistics Innovation award. Their geo-fencing app uses GPS technology for a smarter load check-in process.
The geo-fencing app lets the plant know the location of the truck at 3 spots (50k,20k,3k). Once the truck is 3 kilometer away from the loading plant the app changes its status from “in transit to “in plant”.
This logistics app will eliminate unnecessary paper work and also the wait time to load and unload.
