Dock/Slot Management

Smart control of time windows and loading docks for more efficient supply management that saves time and costs

Optimize coordination of loading and unloading

An efficient, intelligent control of loading and unloading processes offers high potential for savings. After all, there are enormous costs resulting from manual workflows, lack of transparency, long idle and waiting times, and insufficient loading capacity or poor capacity management.

With SupplyOn’s Dock/Slot Management, loading and unloading can be coordinated in an optimized way. This process is also known as Yard Management. Time slots and loading docks can be booked when the transport order is placed and simply adjusted or changed later, if necessary. Workload, staff and facilities can be planned in advance in terms of expected loading times and required loading equipment. Thanks to real-time insight into the current conditions at the ramps, companies can react quickly to changes and thus avoid capacity bottlenecks, congestion and long lead times.
