Transport Management

Transport management-825x290

Base Logistics selects the most suitable carrier for your shipment. To do this, our logistics specialists make use of our knowledge and historical data, such as the ‘On Time Performance’ daily measurement of transporters. You therefore have access to hundreds of carriers, via one independent point of contact.

You can also opt to keep contracts with your present transporters, and still make use of our smart cloud-based Transport Management System (TMS). For shipments or requirements that do not fit into existing contracts, we offer an immediate helping hand through our international logistics network.

Transport Management System
Klairy makes processes transparent, and monitors the agreements made. In it, you will also find all the necessary transport documents. Klairy provides real-time insight into your logistics, including Key Performance Indicators, such as On Time Performance. Wherever and whenever you wish. If you need a price for a shipment immediately, you will find it with the click of a button.

You don’t need to worry about complicated implementation procedures. Klairy operates with your own internet browser and you can go to work with it straight away. It is of course also possible to integrate Klairy with existing systems.

Control Tower

Base Logistics is fully geared to deal effectively with exceptions and customer-specific requirements. The Base Logistics Control Tower monitors all the shipments closely and proactively, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. If the delivery is going entirely to plan, you will not receive any superfluous messages. If there is any hitch in the process, you will be informed quickly. This leaves you free to concentrate on your core business.

Customs and compliance

The legislation on transport is becoming more and more complex and can vary from country to country. Customs inspections can seriously delay your shipments. As a result, companies are running increasing risks in the area of customs and compliance. Base Logistics will help you to keep these risks in check.

We meet the strict requirements of the Customs authorities, which is why Base Logistics has been given the status of Authorised Economic Operator (AEO). In Europe, AEO status is the counterpart of C-TPAT, the security measures which the United States put in place following 11 September 2001. Thanks to the AEO certificate, our customers are much less likely to suffer delays through inspections.

For products with special features, such as ‘dual-use’ goods and hazardous materials, we investigate transport and storage possibilities and assist with export licence applications and VAT issues. We also provide Importer/Exporter of Record (IOR/EOR) solutions and assist with customs clearance.

Warehouse Management

Warehouse Management-825x290

Base Logistics has a global network of over 600 storage locations at its disposal, including our headoffice in Moerdijk with BORG 4 security system. Thanks to this network, we can determine the best storage site for your goods flexibly and independently.

Service Parts Logistics

Whether it concerns a manufacturing company, a financial institution or a medical facility, systems going down can mean disaster. A system’s downtime is often caused by logistical waiting time. That time is expensive, because your customers want your product or service delivered ever faster. Which makes it important to streamline your Service Parts Logistics (or Spare Parts Logistics).

Outsourcing your Service Parts Logistics to Base Logistics will mean shorter waiting times and higher customer satisfaction.

Warehousing
We manage your stock at one of our secure storage locations, or on your own site. Among other things, we carry out cycle counts, inactive stock management, No Fault Found testing and reverse logistics.

Stock accuracy and service performance are of crucial importance. Accordingly, we keep a close eye on those things. Structural audits and pick verification ensure a consistently high quality. Base Logistics uses the ‘free bin’ (or open storage) system. In many cases this guarantees the most efficient means of storage and so reduces your costs compared with the ‘fixed bin’ method.

Moreover, beside our ISO 9001:2008 certification we meet the standards of ISO 13485:2003, for medical devices.

Inventory Management

Smart inventory management can lead quickly to lower stockholding and higher performance. The Base Logistics specialists can advise on this. Our unique application, Klairy, also provides comprehensive insight into stocks and goods flows, including Key Performance Indicators and strategic stock levels. All the information is in real time and within just one well-ordered system.

Value Added Logistics

Customers are expecting more and more of their suppliers. Higher quality, shorter delivery times and more added value. The right logistics partner can help you to meet these high expectations. Our Value Added Logistics give you exactly what your customer wants.

Immediately prior to shipping, we make products customer-specific. We process returns for you efficiently, and Klairy provides insight into returns that are outstanding.
Base Logistics offers services such as kitting, configuration, DOA checks, testing and refurbishing in our ESD-secure facilities.

Customs en compliance

Base Logistics will help you to restrict the growing business risks in respect of customs and compliance. We supply Importer/Exporter of Record (IOR/EOR) solutions and investigate transport and storage possibilities for products with special characteristics, such as ‘dual-use’ goods and hazardous material. We will also assist you with customs clearance and with export licence permit applications. In addition, we assist our customers with VAT issues.

Data Management

Data Management-825x290

Data Management by Base Logistics makes perception measurable. The volume of data is doubling every year. Clever use of data can change the future of companies, but only a few are currently making active use of it.

In many organisations, logistical decisions are still being made based on perception. Moreover, customers are making increasing demands on their suppliers. Better quality, shorter delivery times and more added value.

Base Logistics can help you to meet these high expectations and to base your decisions on the right information. We have the latest logistical data at our disposal and the expertise to link it with your own data, with the experience of our logistics specialists and with other external data. The result is a powerful management tool that helps you to analyse and optimise your logistical and other business processes.

On Time Performance
The On Time Performance (OTP) report presents a complete and honest picture of your transport performance. We give each shipment an OTP code, with which we can measure carrier performance independently. With this report you can also make the perception of your customers measurable and verifiable.

Service levels
This report gives you a quick and simple overview of the requested urgency (service levels) for your shipments. You can even breakdown the requested delivery times to user-level.
Transit times
You get a clear picture of the speed with which goods are shipped, thanks to this report. It also gives you the ability to critically reflect on the costs. For example, is it necessary to send goods via Same Day or Next Day?
Material Inactive Stock

Material Inactive Stock (MIAS) is a very powerful tool to help reduce your inventory. We directly map out which goods have not moved for a long time. This allows you to reduce your inventory and thus lower your costs.

Material Inactive Stock over 2 years

Cycle Count Performance

Klairy automatically generates cycle counts to determine the presence of stock discrepancies at an early stage. The clever Cycle Count tool allows you to quickly identify and tackle the causes of inventory differences. This prevents mispicks, increasing your dependability.

Cycle Count Performance

Inventory Accuracy

For a successful outsourcement of your warehouse management your inventory accuracy is crucial. Using the reporting tool in Klairy you can monitor your stock at any time of the day. Also, our precise processing of inventory transactions constantly ensures a maximum inventory accuracy.

Inventory Accuracy

Order entry statistics
You will gain insight into the peak moments of order entry and can see when and by whom orders were placed. The later an order is placed, the lower the number of transport options is – and the more expensive the shipment may become. Thanks to this clear report you can selectively intervene and reduce your transportation costs.
Support Tickets
In the Support Ticket Center, we provide insight into the history and communication of each order. We monitor the tickets accurately. Our clear reports include the priority of the tickets that you submit and the speed with which they are answered by Base Logistics.

Mission: Base Logistics makes logistics simple, efficient and controllable.

Vision: A different approach can bring opportunities. By innovating continuously, we keep our advantage in the market, and IT is the key to this.

History

Base Logistics was established in 1994 in Dordrecht. The company subsequently set up an office in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, before moving into a new building in Zwijndrecht in 2004. In 2007 we set up an ancillary office in Landsmeer. Because this location quickly became too small and so that we could offer more storage space, in 2009 we moved from Landsmeer to a Distribution Centre in Amsterdam, with an office for 10 employees.

In order to make room for the growth that Base Logistics was experiencing, we extended the head office in Zwijndrecht in 2007 into 6000m2. Apart from extra storage surface, this created additional office space for our 85 employees. As our growth continued the need for a more larger accommodation also grew. Therefore, the Amsterdam DC and the Zwijndrecht headoffice were relocated to Moerdijk at the start of 2017. Shortly after that, the Amsterdam office was moved to Oostzaan.

Already at an early stage, automation and innovation took an important place in our company. In keeping with this, we took the decision in 2003 to develop the logistics platform Klairy entirely under our own steam. It is a smart and unique logistics application that still forms the basis of our service provision today.

    Volumetric weight

    The weight and the space a package takes up are important when determining the shipping costs. Therefore when calculating the price of your shipment, the so-called volumetric weight is also taken into account. It is important to calculate the volumetric weight for every shipment and to compare it with the actual weight in kilogrammes. The shipping costs are determined based on the higher of the two ‘weights’.

    To calculate the volumetric weight, you first determine the volume: length x width x height (in centimetres). For shipments by air and the Express service of international couriers, you divide the volume by the factor 6000 (in some cases 5000). For the Economy service via the integrators, you divide the volume by 4000. For Domestic shipments via the integrators, you use the factor 3333.

    The actual factor can vary per carrier. For a current quote of the volumetric weight of your shipments, you are of course welcome to contact us any time.
