Development Process

Our Freight Management System Development Process

The best freight management software is achieved by adhering to the best software development practices: the Devox team follows the classic SDLC, making stops where needed to ensure uniqueness and individual customization.

01.

01. Requirement Analysis

To start a truly tailored freight management system, the first thing we do is gather and analyze requirements from stakeholders. We talk to your logistics managers, identifying your business needs, pains and user personas, and, based on this information, we further define the scope of the system, including desired features, integrations, and compliance needs. Afterward, our team creates a project plan outlining timelines, milestones, and resources.

02.

02. UI/UX Design

Our design team enters the game: they produce a vibrant user interface (UI) focusing on usability and user experience (UX). This work is followed by diligent UX research and consultations with stakeholders concerning the brand look and visuals. Starting with wireframes and prototypes for key system components, we move on to a full-scale design, both for desktop and mobile versions if the latter is within your order.

03.

03. Architecture and Development

We decide on the technology stack and frameworks to be used, and then develop system architecture and database design. We start writing the code based on the design specifications. Developing the back-end (server, database, etc.) and front-end (user interface), we then ensure the system is modular for easy maintenance and scalability.

04.

04. Integration

We Integrate the FMS blueprint with existing systems your business already operates with (like ERP, CRM, or warehouse management systems) or other software, if we’re developing one for you. Then, the development team incorporates third-party services (e.g., GPS tracking, carrier APIs) as required, and gets to application testing.

05.

05. Testing and Deployment

Before deployment, we conduct various types of testing: smoke testing, unit testing, system testing, integration testing, and user acceptance testing (UAT). After making sure the application works as intended, doesn’t have downfalls, and any problems on the user side, we fix the leftover bugs (if any) and deploy it, implementing data migration if needed.

06.

06. Ongoing Maintenance and Updates

Having deployed the system, we observe the way it works and stay in touch to fix bugs, answer questions, update it regularly, or scale at your demand. Be it new features, security patches, or compliance needs, we are here for you.

Logistics Software Integrations

Logistics Software Integrations

Modern freight management systems require an appropriate tech stack to modernize your operations as well. One of our main development principles at Devox is quality code: this is why we don’t keep a place for legacy stack in our toolbox.

    Each mode has specific functionalities designed to optimize the operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness of that particular mode of transport.

  • How does your system ensure compliance with international shipping regulations?

    Apart from the development team, our company’s lawyers keep their hands on the pulse of regulations in the industries we make software for. This is how we stay updated with international shipping regulations and incorporate these updates into our system regularly. The FMS we make automates the generation and management of necessary documentation, ensuring adherence to customs regulations, import/export laws, and maritime guidelines. It also offers features like cargo screening and duty management, helping businesses avoid costly penalties and delays associated with non-compliance.

  • Can the Freight Management System help in reducing freight costs?

    Yes, one of the primary benefits of working with freight management system software is its ability to significantly reduce freight costs. These systems offer carrier rate comparison, load optimization, and route planning features, which help in selecting the most cost

    -effective shipping options. In case of Devox, we also provide advanced analytics that gives insights into cost-saving opportunities by identifying inefficiencies in your logistics operations. Our freight audit and payment module also ensure accurate billing and prevent overcharges, contributing further to cost reduction.

  • How does the system assist in handling compliance with environmental regulations?

    Environmental compliance is a growing concern in logistics, and our system is equipped to help businesses meet these challenges.

The system can optimize routes and loads to minimize fuel consumption, contributing to reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, it provides reporting tools to track and report environmental performance, aiding in compliance with global and local environmental regulations.

  • How is Western Freight Management different from custom freight management system?

    Western Freight Solutions provides a comprehensive set of supply chain products, including freight management systems, however, it’s a Canadian-based company that focuses on the Canadian market and logistics regulations. On the contrary, the custom software will cater to a market you as a client will choose to work with. The Devox team can help you make this software as effective as possible: for that, we’ve gathered a team of developers, account and project managers, lawyers, and other dedicated professionals who have solid expertise in custom development.
