What is Transport and Logistics?

Transportation is the movement of goods whilst logistics is the management of the inward and outward transportation of goods from the manufacturer to the end-user. The transportation and logistics sector is an important industry in the economy that deals with the movement of people and products. These include companies such as airlines, trucking, railroads, shipping, logistics firms and many many more. Whilst logistics is a process from storing to >transporting goods, it comes with a complicated process when delivering from “A” to “B”. UrAudits can assist this operation, start to finish, ensuring everything is audited and documented throughout the process of planning and execution of the delivery.

What is the importance of transport and logistics?

Transport is vital as it enables communication, trade and other forms of exchange between people. Transport plays an important part in economic growth and globalisation.

In business terms, this is an essential supply chain that helps increase the sales and profits of businesses that deal with the production, shipment, warehousing and delivery of products. Moreover, a reliable logistics service can boost a business' value and help in maintaining a positive public perception.

Using UrAudits dashboard quickly highlights what is going well and not so well, saving you time in contrast to you analysing trends yourself. Get the full story in real-time, tracking issues, follow up actions, notice trends, patterns to make calculative decisions to improve the food standards and service levels. We help manufactures, suppliers and service firms instantly providing digitalised documented evidence for certified audits rather than using the pen and paper method which could cause the following barriers:

  • Takes hours or days to gather intelligence on the business
  • Conducting inspections via pen and paper, taking photos and then going back to the office to create a report which is time-consuming
  • Not completing actionable tasks allocated by the auditor
  • Less productivity and increased admin
  • Potential storage issues with paperwork

Task Assignee

Have you seen whilst doing an inspection that something is a hazard or does not meet company standards?
Have you had a scenario like this before?

Example of Inspection scenario in the past

Auditor

“Phil, can you ensure you can put air in the tyre”

Assignee

Course, I will get it done.

Result:

End of the day - the task was not completed. So the next day, the vehicle is on the road and the tyre has gone flat.

Management

The customer did not receive their delivery. Who’s fault is this? Why did no one check this?

Auditor

Phil, I gave him the task to put air in the tyre by the end of the day. He said that he will do it.

Phil

No, you didn’t. I never received any information or email saying to do this.

Now the finger-pointing game.

With UrAudits, tasks is given to assignee’s on the spot whilst doing your inspection, so it’s documented and recorded using UrAudits “Action Plan / Task Assignee.” This will go to the assignee’s email inbox, notifying them of a delegated task to follow up on.

All available to see on the dashboard (with administrative access).

One of your UrAudits most popular comments we hear from the customers:

‘We use excel forms, giving basic results with tasks being allocated but no real follow up resulting in jobs not being completed or follow-ups. From inspections being done daily, weekly or monthly, following them up is a monumental task and heavy paperwork exercise.’

‘Improve the process and increase productivity within your business with a simply Transport and Logistics app.’
