RESULTS

EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT

Through time slot booking we are now able to plan, spread and execute up to 42 truckloads a day per site.

OPERATIONAL CONTROL

The Automated application is very easy to learn and user-friendly.

TIME SAVING

Everybody involved can manage their own time slots and loading numbers; no more unnecessary e-mails and phone calls for more than 95% of the loads.

TRANSPARENCY

100% transparency for everyone involved in the supply chain.

BETTER PLANNING AND EXECUTION

Carriers now know at what time they have to send the trucks; less waiting times for both the site and the carriers.

COST SAVINGS AND CONTROL

Automated offers the possibility of a flat rate and gives you full control in designing your sites and time slots.

EASE OF REPORTING

Automated allows extraction of the data at any moment.

NEGOTIATION CONTROL

 

Automated is always open to new ideas and helps us in continuous improvement.

STRONGER CARRIER RELATIONSHIPS AND HIGHER CARRIER SATISFACTION

As carriers have their own accounts, they feel more responsible for the loads as they are given autonomy in managing their time slots. Language barriers are gone.

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

Automated is much more flexible than other products, especially when it comes to customization. It is completely independent from your operating system; you don’t have to “integrate” it or give access to your internal data. And it can do way more than just managing time slots. Custom developments and changes are done very promptly.
