Trucks, aeroplanes, and boats may be the first things that come to mind when you think of logistics. Today, logistic operations are far more technologically advanced. We employ a variety of platforms to increase the transparency of your projects, make them simple to manage, and give your company long-term support. Modern times require integrated logistics management, which will make the life cycle of your projects easier.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) This kind of system aids your company in organising the flow of materials from purchasing raw materials to storing finished goods before distributing them to clients or retail stores. You can monitor the entire process from beginning to end. Ottawa Logistics can easily connect to your existing ERP system.
Warehouse Management System (WMS) We have all the information we require on our warehouses thanks to this system. It indicates how much of a product or material is contained in them. Additionally, it can assist in determining the best layout for warehouse’s operations.
Transportation Management System (TMS) This gives us access to all of the information in your logistics plan’s transportation section. It helps in picking the optimal route and arranging shipments in the most effective ways.
When all three of these technologies are combined, you are given a tremendous window into your operations. At Ottawa Logistics, we pride ourselves on all of our technology and integrated logistics services because we recognise the critical role that Integrated Logistics Support plays.

Through the use of barcode technology, customers are able to know at all times status of their inventory. The barcode technology system has five key components: bar codes, wireless handheld computers, wireless access points, software, and an Internet module. Through this efficient system, customers can be confident in Ottawa Logistics’ process of planning, implementing and controlling procedures to efficiently and accurately track and store goods. Handheld computers scan the barcode and the information is transmitted by radio frequency to the access point that covers 160,000 square feet. The access point allows the system to operate wirelessly and instantly update to the software that generates the data for the Internet module. Customers are able to benefit from the fast and accurate data entry that can be immediately seen via the Internet in regard to their inventory and can even generate reports by item, transaction, location or owner.
The Barcode System Process
The barcode system helps throughout the entire process: receiving, putting away, picking and distributing. During receiving, bar codes are placed on items, the information is scanned into the handheld computer, and the data is instantly updated and available for viewing. When putting away items for storage, the barcode system tracks where the items are placed for efficiency and accuracy. When picking items for shipping, the online order that is filled out on the browser window goes directly to the handheld computer device of the warehouse, and the locations of the items are verified. As soon as the list is completed, a packing list is printed automatically and the order is sent to the customer.
