What is a mobile Logistics app?
Logistics covers many industries and processes, and involves managing fleets of vehicles, ensuring deliveries are on time, and monitoring driver safety. Logistics data is mostly compiled in the office in paper forms, and then used to inform everything from company performance to expenses and safety.
Mobile logistics apps are designed to replace your paper- and spreadsheet-based templates with a standardised cloud solution that staff can access on their mobile phones. Logistics data can be administrated instantly, exported and stored compliantly, and can even be pulled into other workflows for end-to-end process automation.

How do I choose a mobile Logistics app?
Many businesses waste thousands of pounds on downtime, unnecessary remedial work, fines and insurance claims that could’ve been easily avoided with some basic preemptive maintenance. Unplanned or unmonitored routes can be a safety as hazard for the driver, and as a result, could result in injury, or the loads not delivered on time.
Nutshell’s selection of mobile logistics apps gives staff a way of managing their core logistics processes on mobile with all essential communication, logging, and important details being stored and recorded digitally.
Having a Journey Management form with an appropriate audit trail ensures that the route is as safe as possible for the driver, and that the loads are delivered on time and safely.
A Vehicle Inspection app covers all the necessary daily checks, with simple yes/no questions and the ability to capture photographic evidence along with the report.
Customers who use Nutshell’s mobile Logistics apps also find the following useful, especially as these apps can be easily linked together to create fully-automated workflows.

4. Kick back and relax
Think of all the fun ways you can spend the time and money you’ve saved not having to chase missing data
The trouble with off-the-shelf logistics apps is that they rarely talk to the rest of your business software. You need to export and import data from one to another by hand, which is slow, expensive and leads to mistakes and data blind-spots… which defeats the object in going digital in the first place.
Imagine if your planning and routing software could alert your Fatigue Management app when an employee has exceeded safe working hours, all on its own. Well, with Nutshell it can.
Nutshell apps are 100% customisable to your business. Not just the superficial stuff – every part of your workflow, from data-capture and line-manager approval, to processing, reporting and integrating with your existing back-office systems.
