MBS Supply Chain Solutions module provides an IT tool for the business processes of trading, marketing and logistics companies. The areas of activity which this system supports include:
- Supply Chain Planning
- Logistics: vessel, barge, train, truck, pipeline, conveyor
- Inventory control

MBS tracks your material flow from procurement to settlement, from the place of origin to the final customer. No matter whether you move your commodities on ocean-going vessels, barges, road or rail transports, via pipelines or conveyor belts — MBS is an application that takes complete care of logistics and quality grades right through to the keeping of inventories.
Always up to date
All calculations are done in real time on the basis of best available data. You will receive precise information on quality grades, composition and delivery dates of every single delivery batch. There is no need for you to worry about the complex interrelations of this process. All information becomes available in real time directly to your screen, with minimal manual data input.
MBS captures data concerning contracts, deliveries and stocks. It also takes into account all costs incurred: material and fuel costs, freight rates, demurrage, handling fees, taxes, duties and other related costs, for instance agent’s commission or the costs of sampling. More complex transactions such as partial shipments to various destinations are also supported and will be completely displayed. MBS stores detailed contract terms which will be applied automatically in the contract’s settlement.
MBS allows the exchange of data of individual transactions with other systems via standard interfaces, including interfaces to Energy Trading and Risk Management Systems (ETRM systems) as well as data exchange with ERP and accounting systems. MBS thus fits seamlessly into your system landscape.
