A POWERFUL CHANGE IN YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN

Collaboration Gives You

the Upper Hand

Time slot booking applications are used for capacity and operational planning at warehouses, container terminals, ports, manufacturing sites, etc. to address one of the largest unplanned costs in transportation: detention.

In case no time slot booking system is used, carriers’ random arrival to load/unload generates bottlenecks with no ETA or OTD. In case a phone-and-paper or Excel-based time slot booking system is in place time slots are negotiated with (heavy workload) or imposed on (no flexibility) carriers.

 

In case of collaborative time slot booking systems, schedules reflecting the operational capacities and availabilities of the site are shared with your partners (carriers, clients, suppliers) who can book time slots, taking into account their own preferences.

 

Timestamps help assess the scheduling efficiency, drivers’ waiting times, productivity of loading/unloading, late arrivals and demurrage cost calculations.
