In the vehicle logistics industry, efficiency is paramount. Streamlining the process of transporting and inspecting vehicles is not just a matter of convenience; it’s a strategic advantage. This case study delves into a project that revolutionised this very operation. From seamlessly creating cases to intelligently assigning them, every facet was optimised for precision and speed. The inclusion of in-house developed features further elevated the process, demonstrating a commitment to innovation and excellence.


Client Background:

The client is a pivotal player in the industry of vehicle logistics, managing the intricate task of transporting and inspecting vehicles. Their expertise lies in optimising client requests and end-user availability for seamless vehicle logistics operations.



Problem Statement:

The challenge was to create an efficient system for processing cases, ensuring precise slot bookings, and automating various aspects of the process. This included addressing end-user requirements for multiple cases related to a single vehicle, with flexibility in selecting inspection and transport dates through a custom calendar component.


Solution Provided:

We introduced a suite of in-house developed features to enhance the process. This included:


  • Calculation of nearest addresses for accurate logistics planning
  • Robust error handling management to maintain data integrity
