Container management with BinMan

Reusable containers have become an indispensable part of logistics, as the environmentally friendly loading equipment, meshed containers, etc. allow savings on logistics costs, which otherwise be incurred for large quantities of packaging waste or damaged cargo.

 

In order to access important information, such as the current location of a container or the condition of a reusable container, at any time and in real-time, companies with a large container pool require a suitable container management system. BinMan is a web-based software solution for empties management and control. The system provides for transparent stock overviews across the entire supply chain and can be integrated flexibly into existing structures. In addition to the standard scope, the functions and user screens can be adapted or expanded on a customer-specific basis as part of individualised development.
