The logistics of collecting and transporting waste presents challenges that need to be overcome daily. Ensuring good waste management, complying with environmental legislation, increasing the efficiency and speed of collection, automating processes, are just some of them. And for that, a software for managing collections can be a great ally.

The challenge is precisely to combine economy, agility and effectiveness in the processes. Some functionalities, specific to a software for waste transportation logistics are fundamental to reach this equation. Check out which ones are below:

1. Route management and optimization

Collection routing is undoubtedly one of the most complex processes in waste transport logistics. Companies that perform this task manually spend a lot of time and the risk of errors is great, in addition, it is necessary to have a team or professional totally dedicated to planning.

With specialized software, this task is performed in a few seconds and the system identifies the route that will be the fastest and most economical.

2. Monitoring of collections in real time

Collection management will be more efficient with real-time monitoring. Through the software, the manager confirms that the team is complying with its route and already verifies the waste that was collected from each customer. At the signal of any unforeseen in the collection, actions can be taken to avoid losing the visit to the client.

3. Digital record of collections

At the time of collection, the driver registers the collected waste through an application. This function eliminates the risk of errors, eliminates the use of paper that needs to be typed later and automates the confirmation of collections with photos and the customer’s signature in real time. It will not be necessary to wait for the vehicle to return to confirm that the collections were made.

4. Emission of MTR and Emergency Form

Generating these documents manually can be a lot of work, especially when the company has many customers, and the risk of errors during filling is greater.

For this, a waste management software must have the functionality to automatically generate the mandatory documents for the transportation of waste. The MTR and the Emergency Form are documents that must accompany the cargo, especially when it comes to hazardous waste.

5. Control for billing

As collections are checked in the system, it is possible to generate the report to bill the customer. The system analyzes the contract data for each customer and checks whether excess waste has been generated. With a click, a report is issued with the total amount to be invoiced.

The 5 features listed above are mandatory in all logistics software for transporting waste, as they ensure greater effectiveness in processes, increase traceability and speed up collections. Having a system that offers all these resources will be essential to improve your company’s collection management and ensure a better relationship with the customer.
