Portfolio

IT Craft addresses all requirements for logistics software development of any size and complexity. Here are two of many projects delivered on time, on budget.

Web platform
MyCarrier

This Web-based logistics management software was designed to connect shippers directly with transportation companies to help them plan and manage shipments more efficiently.
The app makes it possible for users to interact with multiple carriers within a single platform without being burdened by long-term contracts or intermediaries. MyCarrier TMS software helps users throughout the whole shipment cycle: compare quotes, plan and book shipments, track pick-ups and deliveries, collect reports, get invoices, and much more.

Quick Transfer

IT Craft worked on a large logistics automation software for a US-based freight broker to manage client calls. When a client called the company or left a message, the system either redirected the call to the dispatcher system or sent the contact information along with a service email helping dispatchers respond quickly to requests. Also, the system made all changes visible in the system in real time.

Logistics software solutions speed up your supply chain

Computer

Logistics is a complex operation demanding detailed coordination. In today’s global market, logistics ranks #1 as the most dynamically growing environment. Why #1? Because of constant changes and fierce competition.

How do these constant changes affect you?

You—your company—must keep pace. To survive, companies must quickly and efficiently adapt to constant change. They must provide their clients with instant, seamless, and valuable shipment services.

Companies who rely on the old-fashioned, antiquated, time-consuming manual method fall behind. Successful companies rely on automated systems.

And it all begins here—from granular to global.

Logistics software development process

A perfect logistics software solution is the result of detailed work implementing a client’s vision of a smooth-running business.

It takes five steps:

Project discovery

A development team thoroughly analyses project requirements, asks clarifying questions, and offers an implementation path. We discuss terms of cooperation then sign a contract and an NDA, if requested, as part of the project contract.

Software development

The development team divides the entire project into Sprints. Each Sprint averages two weeks. The development team simultaneously works on different parts of the system. At the end of each Sprint, the client has access to a completed part of product functionality to test and evaluate.

Software launch

After the source code is ready and thoroughly tested, software goes live. The team deploys it on the production server. When it is ready to be launched, the team publishes the app on the stores, if requested.

Post-launch guarantee

This is an essential part of IT Craft’s logistics software development services. The same developers ensure swift elimination of any discovered bugs and flaws in the source code. The guarantee period depends on the project size. It ranges from 1 – 3 months.

Maintenance and expansion

The development team maintains the source code ensuring instant availability to end users. No downtime because of code issues. The team also provides security updates and introduces new, required features

As a product owner choosing logistics software development, you get:

Before, during, and after each Sprint
  • Participation in work planning
  • Access to project manager during working hours to answer any concerns/questions you might have
  • Regular reports on completed work
  • Access to the functional code on the testing server
After project launch
  • Source code deployed on client’s chosen server
  • Detailed project documentation
  • Published in app stores, if requested
  • After-launch-guarantee support

  • 2 What is logistics software?

    Logistics software helps companies organize, run, record, monitor, and manage processes such as material, information, and human flow. Transport and logistics software optimizes costs and makes accurate inventory possible.

    Logistics software solutions can be implemented as:

    • stand-alone desktop software
    • internal solutions accessible from company’s own intranet
    • SaaS solution available globally via Internet connection
  • 3 What are the 3 main activities of logistics systems?

    The three main activities include:

    • Order processing – receiving and managing orders from clients and keeping them updated on their order status. Order processing automation systems substantially decrease order-cycle time.
    • Inventory management – keeping finished products or their components ready for selling, manufacturing, or transportation. Inventory management software keeps supplies as low as you choose before reordering. This decreases your overall costs.
    • Freight transportation – transport products and/or components to the destination point is responsible for circa 2/3 of total logistics costs. Transport logistics software optimizes transportation costs and improves efficiency of customer service.

    Your customers matter. Keep them in mind constantly during logistics software development. If there are recurring requests or issues, include solutions for them on your list of requirements.

  • 4 How do you make a transport app?

    Use the following steps to make transport logistics software:

    • Do a survey on the needs of end users.
    • Analyze survey results and make a list of requirements.
    • Reduce your list of requirements to essential, core features.
    • Design user path or ask for help from experts.
    • Develop source code for your transport logistics software.
    • Launch soon (apply to cross-platform development when possible).
    • Ensure users can easily leave feedback.
    • Improve the app based on user feedback.
  • 5 What software is used in logistics?

    Logistics software solutions vary based on what problems users need to solve.

    Main logistics software types include:

    • CRM (Customer relationship management) – track customer interactions.
    • Inventory management – track supply levels.
    • Warehouse management software – track and analyze operations, monitor items’ location in the warehouse.
    • Transportation and fleet management – manage company shipments, vehicles, and drivers.
    • Supplier management – organize and track interactions with vendors and suppliers.
    • Demand planning – manage plans and forecast customer demands based on collected data.
    • On-demand transport logistics software – receive and efficiently manage orders from end clients.
