SIMPLY. ROI calculator – for a Win-win Outcome
The SIMPLY. website features a unique tool – the ROI calculator. This will help you determine the point from which the SIMPLY container loading system will start paying off for you. While the basic idea is simple, the execution is sophisticated. You’ll be given binding reference points to use for your calculation. The starting point for the concept came back to real-life application. Various cost drivers come into play when it comes to loading containers. And the most important of these are: The number of staff needed, the cost of heavy equipment such as forklifts or cranes, and of course time.
This is compared against the costs associated with loading containers using a SIMPLY. system, because this does naturally also involve some expense – it’s just much less.
If, in addition, you use open-top containers, you can also take these costs into account. This is where you will notice the greatest ROI, as you directly save money every time you no longer need an open-top container.
You can of course use the ROI calculator as often as you wish, e.g. if you want to calculate costs both with and without crane hire, or base your calculation on different numbers of staff. In the end, the same principle applies as for SIMPLY. itself: Just press the button, and the rest will be done automatically. You can also print the result out for later analysis if you so desire.
The ROI itself is incidentally calculated based on how many container loadings are needed before you start earning a profit. It is essentially structured around two blocks – conventional loading and loading using SIMPLY.
When you first access the ROI calculator, you’ll see a series of empty input fields. After all, the result needs to be as realistic as possible, which is why we don’t work with estimates, but rather with actual costs, e.g. the hourly rate for your staff or for any necessary crane hire. If you don’t need a crane, simply leave the field blank.
Right from the first time you set eyes on the input fields, however, you quickly realise the scenarios involved when loading containers without using a container-filler. The cargo is ready, the truck is waiting, and several staff members are needed – often both outside and inside the container. These staff members cost money, and are not available for other tasks while they are tied up here. The same applies when using forklifts or cranes, which requires careful briefing and instinct, and no matter how experienced you are, the complex interplay of staff and equipment is anything but routine. It is also hazardous work. And it is worth noting here that, while the increase in safety achieved as a result of using SIMPLY. cannot be backed up by concrete figures, and has no direct impact on ROI, it does of course pay off in the long run. The same is true for the time saved. SIMPLY loads containers outside the container, long before the truck arrives at the yard – so no costs are incurred for waiting times. And that’s something you can also directly track in the ROI calculator! Plus there’s the fact that handling times are dramatically reduced, enabling you to send more products faster!
So why not put the rule to the test: https://simply-logistic.com/en/roi/
