Japanese logistics companies are still relying on legacy systems in their operations, resulting in long and inefficient workflows. To solve this problem, customers aims to build a nation-wide Transportation Management System (TMS). As their trusted IT partner, Tokyo Tech Lab built a robust and scalable SaaS that is now being used by logistics companies all across Japan as part of digitalizing and simplifying their day-to-day processes.

The Case

The logistics industry in Japan is at a crossroads. An intensifying demand for lower cost shipping and a worsening labor shortage are pushing logistics companies to minimize operational fees and boost productivity.

A major bottleneck in the industry is the fact that logistics companies’ fleet and driver management processes are still heavily reliant on outdated methods such as using spreadsheets, printed forms, and fax, resulting in long and inefficient workflows. As a result, there is plenty of time, resources, and labor wasted.

Tokyo Tech Lab's customers aims to solve this problem through digital transformation. By creating a comprehensive Transportation Management System (TMS) that integrates all internal logistics operations into a single digital platform, customers aims to simplify and advance the Japanese logistics industry.

Our team was introduced to the first project just three months before the business was founded in April 2020. After going through a high-level explanation of the product concept and market objectives, our team realized that it will be an exciting but also a very challenging project. Not only was it the first time we have ever dealt with a project of such scale and scope, but there was also a very tight deadline that we had to keep.

Based on this valuable experience, we continues to develop more innovative logistics systems, suitable to the requirements of upcoming customers in the logistics industry and successfully projects quickly and efficiently.

The software allows dispatchers to easily input delivery information such as customer name, destination, and departure time into a centralized database. They can then assign the deliveries to available drivers in the dispatch screen with just a simple drag-and-drop. The dispatch screen features a smart timetable that shows the status of all drivers and deliveries, making tracking delivery progress a breeze.

The growth of e-commerce and a shortage of drivers is a growing problem for Japanese companies, who may find it difficult to secure transport for their cargo. To tackle this problem, the customer required Tokyo Tech Lab to develop a matching service using AI-powered service that matches companies looking for available transport with logistics companies with idle trucks to rent. Complete with a chat messaging feature, both companies can easily negotiate delivery details within the app itself.
