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.

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.

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:

SIMPLY. The glob­al stan­dard

Logis­tics is the dri­ver of glob­al­i­sa­tion. And con­tain­ers are its tur­bo, as a glob­al­ly recog­nised stan­dard capa­ble of being han­dled any­where in the world. Which is why SIMPLY. is expand­ing its solu­tion world­wide. Because load­ing and unload­ing con­tain­ers was some­thing…
