To make bulk calculations for routings much more quicker we introduced the Preferred supplier in the Customer Lanes Routings.

When starting a Cost Calculation for a Quotation the calculator get a proposal with all matching Customer Lane Routings for this quotation, including the preferred suppliers. For all those combinations the Costs will be automatically calculated.

This makes Cost Calculation a fully automatic process. Maintain your contracts and your lanes and the cost calculation process will do the rest.



◘ Customer Lane Routings Door-to-Pier example



Supply Chain Control Tower


The Rating module has been extended to have even better information about your charters, subcontractors and vessel, rail and air carriers.

Price is important, but delivering on time and according the agreed terms and conditions is even more important, with the Rating module this can be quantified.


◘ Ratings



Incident module

The Incident module has been extended with all kind of dashboard widgets. This data is available in standard Graphics and it is also possible to download the data and make your own reporting.

◘ Incidents Dashboard

◘ Automatically generated Incident

◘ Process Incident



Freight / Forwarding / Transportation / Warehousing

To make it possible to handle all kind of multimodal transport scenarios in 1 screen we have created a new Layout for the Dossier (=Order Management) screen.

Now it's possible to handling all kind of scenario's in the Multi Order screen e.g.:

  • Trucking - Rail - Barge- Trucking
  • Transport - Air - Transport
  • Trucking - Vessel
  • ... and many more ...


some improvement are made in the Warehouse Management module, like a better overview of the available free spaces and better overview of stock levels per product.

We also integrated the Incident module in the Transport modules. It's now possible to configure Incident creation when Actual dates are not according planning. Those incidents can be handled via a Workflow and are included in the management reporting overviews



◘ Multiple Orders



Maintenance & Repair

In the last period we made the last preparations to go live with the Maintenance & Repair module. The LIVE version is now integrated in the HOYER environment. Master data and Tariff data has been uploaded.

The first users will be in China.


New functionalities are mainly in the area of Management Reports:

  • Reductions Overview
  • Off Hire Overview
  • Region Estimates Overview


Other extra functionalites are the Partly Approval process and Copy Estimate.



◘ Maintenance & Repair - Reductions Overview




We implemented an automatic invoicing module for the license fees of our Logistics Cloud Suite customers. At the end of the month those invoices will be automatically generated, which means more efficiency and correct invoicing. Depending on the agreement we can generate invoices based on active users, portal users, orders and invoiced orders

We use same the Contract, Calculation and Finance modules, which are also used in the Quotator, the Maintenance Repair application and the Logistics modules.


◘ License Order



Other functionalities



ADR 2017

We have made our Product database ready for ADR 2017.

New rules for carriage dangerous goods by road (ADR 2017)

26 January 2017

This article discusses the most significant changes to the 2017 European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR 2017).
On 1 January 2017, the transport of dangerous goods by road, annexes A and B of ADR 2017 was adopted, however, the transitional measures provided in ADR allow ADR 2015 to be used until the 30 June 2017.
Some of the most significant changes concern Lithium batteries and the use of flexible bulk containers. There is a new lithium battery mark for lithium cells and batteries meeting the provisions of SP 188. The new BK3 code allows the use of flexible bulk containers (Croner-i, 1 December 2016).

To Do Functionality

The general To Do functionality has been upgraded. The following improvements are made:

  • the execute To Do page has now all Email information listed, see print screen.
  • it's possible to define a From Email address per document, Send To relation, person, etc...
  • Additional information can be added before sending the email




We delivered improvements and extra data possibilities to the Dossier Upload in this release.

also the regeneration options are extended. In most cases it's possible to rollback an upload run.

A nice extra feature is the automatic recognition of the tag separator. The program automatically identifies if it is a 'comma' or  'semicolon'.


◘ File Uploader Widget




Software Quality


Automatic Testing

We are testing our programs automatically. In this part you see the number of test cases which are running. Goal is to have all processes automatically tested. New functionalities and reported bugs will always be included in an automatic test case by extending an existing test case or making a new test case. With this overview we want to inform about the number of test cases we are running. It's a strategic choice to give this Automatic Testing our full attention. As our application is expanding and expanding it's impossible to test all different possibilities by hand and guarantee the quality our customers expect from us.
