Managing transport capacity efficiently can significantly reduce costs, improve collection and delivery performance, remove costly errors and keeps the customers happy. CarrierNet’s flexible, scalable slot management and allocation of loads solution can manage the whole ‘transport booking’ process effectively in ‘real time’.
This significantly reduces manual intervention, potential delays, errors, manages transport partners seamlessly and most importantly identifies the most cost effective delivery partner. This creates significant added value to all the logistics trading partners.
CarrierNet customers use the slot management module to: first of all assess the customer’s requirements; review the options available, select a service provider using agreed criteria then plan and offer the slot to the best options. Confirmation and rejection of a slot is done online and is then offered to the next preferred operator.
At the same time CarrierNet customers can use the slot management module to match shift patterns with the personnel available and identify easily how many slots can be accommodated per shift. Orders can then be assigned to the slot times enabling CarrierNet’s Carrier Manager module to process the order and allocate it in collaboration with in-house or sub-contract operators. CarrierNet’s flexibility and ease of use helps reduces massively waiting times at the pick-up point providing better asset utilisation for all partners. Thus helping to improve logistics performance and reduce costs at the same time.
