Effectively manage incoming vehicles: The Transporeon Time Slot Management solution shows your loading and unloading capacity in a digital schedule. Carriers use the online system to independently book convenient loading or unloading times. Vehicle arrival times are automatically adapted to available resources, such as teams, lift trucks or other equipment. Time Slot Management optimises internal processes, increases handling capacity, and reduces delays as well as loading and unloading times.
Increase handling capacity by up to 20%
Optimised processes save time and free up resources to load and unload additional vehicles.
Reduce driver wait times by up to 40%
HGVs arrive at the ramp at the agreed-upon time, preventing traffic congestion at the site.
Shorten loading times by up to 60 minutes
Loading and unloading appointments can be fine-tuned to speed up processes and handling times.
Optimal use of resources
Steady, planned distribution of inbound vehicles – resources and goods can be made ready at the right time.
Audit and legal security
Completely documented processes.
Improved planning and optimisation
Automated communication and availability of real-time data.
Lower transport costs
Eliminated demurrage charges and optimisation of loading times.
Comprehensive transparency and control
Clear overview of critical processes, carrier quality levels and optimisation potential.
Digital resource management
Docks and unloading resources are digitally mapped, then assigned and managed through the system.
Centralised status information
The status of each truck can be viewed and updated by all departments in real time.
Documentation of registrations, safety instructions and status changes are audit-proof.
Dynamic time slot lengths
The system determines the required loading time based on your transport data and resources. Alternate time-slot length availability and booking is also possible.
Complete transport data
All information is available centrally, including vehicle and driver information, or health and safety lists.
You can prepare standard reports and evaluate KPIs at the press of a button, e.g. to meet deadlines and determine truck waiting or processing times.
Peak loads and idle times
Uneven distribution of incoming vehicles throughout the day means congestion and idle times.
Limited planning capability
No visibility into vehicle arrival times. Loading and unloading resources cannot be planned in advance, and transport goods must be prepared on short notice.
Congestion and detention or demurrage charges
Uncoordinated arrivals result in vehicle congestion at the site. Long waiting times result in surcharges and increased transport costs.
Time-consuming and complex organisation
Dock scheduling by telephone, fax and email is time-consuming. Administration in Excel tables is cumbersome. Misunderstandings arise due to language barriers and important information gets lost.
Lack of transparency and documentation
Documentation of loading and unloading processes is incomplete, resulting in a lack of evidence if accidents occur. Incomplete data prevents valid reporting.
Missing information, reliance on verbal and written communication, and time pressure all combine to increase accident risks.
