This project proposes the development of a solution in layers with functional application on consistent servers and with interfaces of high portability so that the system linked to radio frequency and positioning devices via satellite can monitor the logistical operations and display to its users the main restrictions of the system to be optimized, as well as alternative solutions. The proposal arose from studies and consultancies undertaken by the Coordinator of the project on various supply chains, such as fuel alcohol, which are extremely demanding in terms of their logistical efficiency and performance. These studies continue in conjunction at Log1, a logistical solutions development company. Log1 was born in March 2005 and today, in addition to overseeing some projects of social responsibility, offers the market consultancy and training services. The parties involved in this partnership firmly believe that providing the actors of the actual logistical scenario with functional solutions and scientifically underwritten consultancy services, these actors are then given the opportunity to dedicate their efforts to their specific competencies, minimizing the logistical costs and cranking up corporate development. The strategic and operational alignment of the supply chains proposed in this project is directly related to Log1’s mission of transforming the logistical challenges of its clients into opportunities for liquidity and sustainability. Therefore, the participants in the project believe in the real capability of logistical innovation from the external problem-solvers involved, as well as in better management alternatives made viable by the new technologies available today. The proposal for several systems to communicate through a single resource is based on the concepts of collaborative logistical management, as proposed in the CPFR (Collaborative Planning and Forecast Replenishment), with the project thus being in tune with the presumptions of the new computing age, the ubiquitous computer (many computers and one system for various businesses).
