Visibility – the key to slot booking success

Downtime on the dock can get incredibly expensive, very quickly.

The goal of optimised slot bookings is to achieve a consistent and predictable workload. A booking solution needs to be designed to avoid both downtime caused by waiting for deliveries and congestion from too many deliveries on site.

To achieve this, a slot booking application needs to provide first-rate operational visibility, with a real-time view of activities across all sites.

The Transwide time slot booking application is built on powerful, easy-to-use appointment scheduling software. It manages flows across all your facilities, through a self-service booking portal used by carriers, customers and suppliers.

Having a single, online communication and scheduling platform eliminates the confusion caused by complex spreadsheets. It also reduces the need for time-consuming phone calls and emails.

Smarter planning with time slot booking software

The slot booking solution also enables fast, simple management of documentation. Users and managers can upload any type of document directly into the appointment booking, including packing lists, transport documents, certificates, load pictures and any other necessary paperwork.

Once uploaded, users who have the right to view booking details can view or download attachments. This ensures compliance throughout the docking processes.

These efficiency gains extend into staff planning, as slot booking is integrated with labor and workforce planning systems. Transwide’s slot booking application creates a schedule based on your labor capacity. This means loads can be aligned to maximize productivity and minimize overtime costs.

For transport operations and warehouse managers, Transwide slot software delivers objective key performance indicators (KPIs) which can be leveraged to improve operations.

Scheduling 100% of inbound and outbound shipments is now a reality.

Handling the unexpected

In transportation, delays and unexpected incidents are inevitable. These can range from earthquakes and bankruptcies to vehicle collisions. Shipments outside of your control can severely disrupt your inbound and outbound planning. The subsequent delays can increase costs and damage your customer service performance. 

While some delays are unavoidable, most are the result of a lack of planning. The Transwide slot booking application optimizes capacity and drastically reduces the number of delays that occur.

When disruptions do happen, Transwide slot booking software offers unrivaled flexibility, such as SMS communication with drivers and other transportation professionals. 

Text messages inform staff when they can load or unload. This speed and ease of communication improves turnaround time and productivity, minimizing the impact of unforeseen events.
