Tanker Receipts

Track the movement of milk from various chilling centers and third-party suppliers

Achieve Efficient Milk Transportation

Milk movement from BMCUs to the downstream is an important activity in Dairy management. Milk is a perishable item and starts getting spoiled quickly. Market demand vs. milk collected from farmers will never match. Selling milk as milk to other market players or forward contracts to purchase in case of deficiency is a continuous activity. Balancing fluctuations during the lean and flush seasons etc. needs continuous monitoring and coordination. Moving milk entails complex logistics interventions and Incident handling. Real-time visibility and historical trends help planning these activities better.
Milk tankers are not ordinary trucks. They carry specially designed insulated tanks that keep the temperature inside the tanker suitable for milk. A tanker can contain anywhere from 5000 to 15000 liters of milk and deploying a tanker with needed capacity saves costs. Contract management with transporters entail stringent checks to verify the condition of the vehicle with proper insulation infrastructure, other accessories like stepney tyres etc. go a long way in risk mitigation in the milk transportation. Milkosoft in-built controls ensure that only registered tankers with fitness check periodically as well as carry insurance cover only are deployed for operations.

Beware of Fraudulent Activities

After a tanker filled with milk arrives at the dairy plant, it is weighed for the amount of milk it has brought. Integration capabilities of Milkosoft with weighing scales ensure tamperproof capture of the gross weight and tare weight. Integration with the quality lab helps dairies to capture test results without any manual intervention. Not only fat and SNF but several other key parameters like MBRT, acidity, CLR, COB, OT, Sediment Test, Appearance etc can be captured in a flexible way. Final bill is generated from the system based on the business rules of the dairy and ensures that the dairy is paying for what has been received by them. A mandatory seal check before and after pouring the milk ensures that only the collection centers are opening the seal to pour the milk and it is not being opened by the transporter during the commute to help dairies prevent frauds proactively.

Stay on Top of Tanker Records and BMC Details

This is where the Tanker Receipt module by Vasista becomes useful for dairy companies. With the help of tanker tracking, BMC wise record-keeping, centralized database, and integration with IoT devices improves recording keeping capabilities. A central mobile dashboard records the weight of the tankers when they are filled at the BMC and again when they are delivered to the dairy plant. Certain critical features like automated computation of distance, hike in diesel prices to process contractors’ pay outs are automated in the system. Several in-built and proven dairy specific features include reconciliation when milk from two BMCs having different quantities and fat content is mixed in the tanker etc. makes the roll out much easier.

Track Tanker Movement Accurately

Tankers are integrated with GPS and the module creates an optimized route from the BMC to the dairy plant for the tanker to follow. Now they can’t diverge from the route to earn extra in terms of transportation fees, something that a lot of tankers try to do nowadays. It also solves the problem of. With accurate data collection at the BMC level, proper weightage to both the collection centers can be given as per the amount and fat content they sent. Milk received at the plant or sent for 3rd party processing or sold to other dairies as well as sent for powder conversion etc. can be easily managed. Past trends can be reviewed for better planning for the upcoming season.

Case Study

Diary company DKMUL had 124 BMCUs working for them collecting milk and dispatching it to distributors and retailers every day. They used to keep a record of 3 to 5 lakh liters of milk every day which was not a simple job. After employing Vasista’s BMCU management solution, they now have real-time updates of milk movement across their 124 BMCUs. They can see the inventory level in real-time and are able to plan their production a lot better based on the market demands and utilization. Everything is stored in the central location making it easier to access as well.
