Slot Booking and Allocation Manager
CarrierNet provides a real time solution which allows shippers to collaborate with their 3PL service providers and multi-tier transport providers to manage the whole process of slot management. This covers booking slots for the most cost effective partner who can meet service and other requirements and the tool provides genuine added value advantage to all logistics trading partners.
This significantly reduces manual effort and the associated delays and errors. Confirmation or rejection of load offers are made immediately on line and the load is offered to the next preferred operator. At the pick-up site, waiting times are reduced dramatically providing better asset utilisation for all partners.
This facility enables the shipper to enter shift personnel and automatically decide how many collection and delivery slots can be accommodated for that shift. Assigning orders to the slot times then enables the 3PL and Carrier Manager solution to collaboratively process the order allocation to in-house or sub-contract operators.
When outsourced companies are used, the gatehouse can see who is arriving or departing and what bay they must be directed to and at what time. Also on departure the gatehouse can record the load security number. This enables the gatehouse to know who is on site, what asset (trailer) is also on site and its status.
