LEA REPLY™ DOCK SCHEDULING

LOADING BAY PUNCTUALITY AND CONTROL

LEA Reply™ Dock Scheduling is the collaborative solution to manage the distribution of loading and unloading appointments at warehouse docks via a cloud-based portal. Carriers and suppliers can make appointments based on dock availability and specific compatibility rules. Dashboards improve the monitoring of activities and enable real-time event tracking, ETA updates and relevant metrics.

THE SOLUTION

LEA Reply™ Dock Scheduling is a collaborative tool which streamlines dock management processes by allowing suppliers and transporters to book loading and unloading appointments at warehouse docks through an easy-to-use, cloud-based portal available 24/7. The solution enables you to improve dock productivity by distributing appointments smoothly across available timeslots, reduce workload peaks and ensure the strategic allocation of resources.

LEA Reply™ Dock Scheduling is designed to help improve efficiency and visibility, bringing together carriers and suppliers of products and raw materials on one platform, 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 scheduling needs when managing 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. Moreover, it can easily be integrated with Transportation and Yard Management Systems which enables the convergence of logistics processes and provides further control over arrivals at docking bays.

The system can measure the actual performance of logistics centres, carriers and suppliers and monitor actual arrival times in comparison with expected times, creating useful KPI charts, alerts and indicators to enhance the usability and productivity of the solution, resulting in significant benefits in terms of the efficiency and visibility of the restocking process.

THE PROCESS

  • Configuration of delivery centres with data on loading bays and corresponding access gates
  • Management of customisable work calendars for centres and loading bays
  • Scheduling management (creation, acceptance, check-in and check-out at the entrance gate and in the loading bay)
  • Precalculation of loading bay times based on product configurations, loading bay logistics and composition of the materials (i.e. pallets, packages)
