Just-in-time scheduling

    The Agtrix traffic scheduling system, FREDD, enables continuous supply of agricultural product to a processing plant through improved fleet management. Our ‘just in time’ transport scheduling software aims to cut transport costs by minimising the number of trucks needed to maintain supply. Operating in real time, FREDD enables clients to respond immediately to changes in:

    • Crushing rate
    • Average bin weight
    • Variable road conditions (eg fog, rain, holiday traffic, road works)
    • Truck or plant breakdowns and other delays.

    When combined with Agtrix telemetry in the harvesting fleet, FREDD can tell a processing plant when and where product is ready to pick up, while our ETA Calculator can accurately predict projected supply.
