In addition to the market leading SAP based FIS/wws suite of solutions specifically for the “trade” wholesale industry, FIS also offers expertise and consultancy in logistics and supply chain integration. FIS also announced a new proposition to the “logistics community” at the LogiMAT/Tradeworld Fair in January 2017.

FIS-iLog GmbH, introducing its new iRetPlat (integrated Returnable System Platform) solution for the first time. This is a new kind of cloud platform for the management of reusable transport packaging (RTP). In his lecture “Digital logistics collaboration – a (r)evolutionary cloud platform for anyone involved in logistics”, Johannes Weigand, managing director of FIS-iLog GmbH explains how logistics players in the RTP management can make savings of 20-30% or more of the usual process costs – i.e. non-integrated records using paper documents or excel.

The platform is hosted by FIS and is available across UK/Europe – an electronic logbook of returnable transport assets. The solution integrates with ERP and Accounts software – not restricted to SAP users.
