LOADING BAY PUNCTUALITY AND CONTROL

SideUp Reply™ Transportation Portal and Appointment Scheduler is the collaborative solution designed to manage the transportation configuration and scheduling at loading bays for large logistics centres.
Collaborative module for carriers and suppliers available on a single web platform. Improves monitoring activities and simplifies the receiving and forwarding of incoming and outgoing vehicles from logistics and production centres.

THE SOLUTION

THE SOLUTION

SideUp Reply™ TP-AS is a collaborative module designed to help improve efficiency and visibility into transportation configuration services for picking up freight from suppliers and access to large logistics and production centres.

The solution, which brings together carriers and suppliers of products and raw materials on one platform, consists of two functional areas:

  • The Transportation Portal (TP) whose purpose is to anticipate information related to transportation configuration in terms of goods delivery notes, pallets and materials contained.
  • The Appointment Scheduler that handles loading bay scheduling and manages the flow of access and exit of vehicles from large logistics and production centres.

The cloud solution makes it possible to quickly organise complex transportation solutions composed of tens to hundreds of suppliers, carriers and delivery points. The multi-device usability of the platform (PC, tablet, smartphone support) makes it simple and easy to adopt.

KPI charts, alerts and indicators enhance the usability and productivity of the solution, resulting in significant benefits in terms of the efficiency and visibility of the restocking process.
