Let’s say our warehouse has loads for 50 trucks. Before Alpega TMS, 60 trucks show up. Then we have 10 trucks that have to make their backhaul empty, and that’s not a green practice at all. Avoiding overbooking helps us save CO2.
See how Ranpak reduces time on site for carriers and supports sustainability goals thanks to Alpega’s dock scheduling solutions.
Smarter scheduling: Configurable rules based on goods types and other parameters determine how long a time slot should be.
Smarter communication: Goods arrive/depart, and if there’s a delay, stakeholders get an SMS notification. With reliable information flowing, shipper-carrier relationships bloom.
Smarter management: When your warehouse team isn’t scrambling to coordinate with carriers, it frees up hours to perform more valuable work. Plus, you can manage productivity based on real data, not hunches.
The bottom line: Smart Booking shrinks wait times, gets goods where they should be and gets you better information for personnel planning. Productivity gains, downtime reductions, managing for peaks and avoiding demurrage all add up to major cost savings. See what kind of bottom-line impact Smart Booking can deliver for your company.
No matter your existing services, IT landscape or ERP, our solutions are built to integrate seamlessly, with no interruption to business continuity. Smart Booking, like all modules of Alpega TMS, is cloud-based, which means you avoid costly on-premise setup and maintenance efforts.
Smart Booking is available as a standalone module and as a part of Alpega’s end-to-end TMS. The solution is powerful alone; as a part of our TMS, it takes transportation planning and processes to new levels of optimization. Either way, you get endless scalability to ensure you’ll never outgrow the solution’s value.
Industry knowledge, collaboration and technology let us deliver continually evolving solutions. Cloud-based updates are frequent, seamless and based on real feedback from clients. We’re always looking for the next way to improve.
