SATO, a leading supplier of solutions for automatic identification and data capture, and CSD, a software specialist, have agreed to future collaborations in the transport and logistics sector. The aim is to merge various products from the two companies in order to offer customers integrated solutions.
CSD, with headquarters in Bad Düben, Germany and branches in Weßling near Munich and Arlesheim near Basel, is an established software consulting and outsourcing service provider specialising in online business, online security and client/server solutions. TransWareOne® client/server software from CSD Logistik Software is a powerful tool for an end-to-end order handling for logistics services. Freight forwarders, carriers, shippers and the manufacturing industry use TransWareOne to not only automate standard functions, such as generating quotations, capturing order data, dispatching and billing, but also to manage their equipment, implement document management and optimise fully automatic lorry shipments.
SATO offers a full spectrum of labelling and tracking solutions for the transport and logistics industry and supports customers in all phases from consulting and specification to design and implementation. In this regard high speed and the minimisation of potential sources of errors are important factors. For example, user-friendly thermal barcode printers from SATO deliver labels with good text legibility and persistently accurate barcode markings. Particularly in combination with automated high-speed systems, this enables fast identification, precise sorting and effective tracking at every stage of the shipping and delivery process. Mobile printers enable printing on demand, so that the right labels can be printed and affixed locally, such as during order picking in a stockroom.
"We see considerable potential from our ability to cooperate, share ideas and jointly develop comprehensive solutions, including both hardware and software, in the interest of our customers", commented Detlev Müller, General Manager SATO Germany in Raunheim. "CSD has an established position as a competent software partner for companies in the central European market and has been successfully serving the transport and logistics sector for many years. We are pleased with the collaboration and the opportunity to offer our customers additional capabilities and a broader range of solutions."
