Many shippers looking to alleviate loading dock congestion and build some flexibility into their loading/unloading operations have turned to a drop trailer program for increased efficiency. What happens when the program is fully implemented and a different set of inefficiencies is created instead? Now reliance on yard spotters and other dock personnel collide with paper-and-pencil scheduling systems, and you’re at the mercy of old-fashioned methods of staying on top of every single load coming into your yard that day.
Dock scheduling systems can provide massive time and cost savings for drop trailer programs, giving you the ability to better plan and allocate resources. Join us for a 30-minute webinar to learn:
- How dock scheduling can help account for and manage trailers
- How to schedule around live loads coming in at same time
- How dock scheduling helps with resource planning (reduces need for yard spotters, better manage time of on-site drivers and loading/unloading/warehouse personnel)
- Why these inefficiencies give your competitors an advantage
