Montreal, Canada – June 10, 2021 – Nuvoola Inc., a North-America-based artificial intelligence firm, is announcing a new enterprise solution for supply chains that improves operational efficiency in yards and terminals by automating processes, providing real-time insight and visibility into logistics operations.
This SaaS solution, called LUKE AI for Manufacturing and Distribution Centers (MDC), is an intelligent process optimization solution meant to streamline yard operations and increase logistics efficiency. The complete solution is comprised of a reservation system for carriers to schedule their time of arrival, an automated check-in and security process for truck drivers as well as an intelligent dashboard that displays operational insights and performance indicators.
With its self-serve reservation feature, carriers and shippers can schedule an appointment allowing the site to optimize their operation logistics and increase dock worker’s productivity by synchronizing appointment requests with dock or terminal capacity.
Easily integrated into existing camera infrastructure, LUKE AI for Manufacturing and Distribution Centers uses machine vision to digitize and centralize information in real-time such as the arrivals and departures of trucks, trailers, and containers, purchase orders, seal numbers and temperature readings.
At the gate, Nuvoola’s contactless self-serve kiosk can be installed to automate driver’s identification and vehicle identification to reduce check-in time while providing secured access to the site. Once identified, the kiosk tells the drivers where to go, improving the flow of operations and increasing the gate throughput. Paired with the reservation system, this decreased gate congestion and reduces dwell time.
The solution also generates operational performance indicators in real-time via customizable multi-site dashboards to quickly identify opportunities to increase efficiency and reduce costs.
“We’re excited to be able to bridge the gap between transport and warehouse management with an easy-to-implement solution that streamlines yard and terminal operations. Our solution offers full visibility over assets, inventory and shipments allowing companies to increase productivity through automation and better communication between all parties,’’ said Martin Renière, President of Nuvoola. “They can increase partners’ satisfaction while monitoring their performance.’’
LUKE AI for Supply Chain and Logistics is the latest solution launched by Nuvoola. It joins the company’s other AI solution, LUKE AI for Health Screening and Protection (HSP), launched in mid-2020. LUKE AI is the artificial intelligence platform that drives both solutions and is an acronym for “learn, understand, know and execute”.
