Planning Enables Effective Vehicle Loading
Getting vehicles loaded and on their way can be a very complicated task. Bulk orders vs. bay loads, out of service vehicles, dozens (or even hundreds) of SKU's, vehicle capacity limits, stacking restrictions, and more must be correctly integrated under tight time constraints. Even after you are finished, there is no guarantee that you won't have to adjust the loads again before they head out the door. Being responsible for all of these details, ensuring warehouse pickers have the right information, minimizing breakage and trying to maximize efficiency is very difficult.
FleetLoader® analyzes and optimizes loading of both bay or bulk beverage vehicles. Multiple loading strategies can be employed to meet the needs of all delivery types and warehouse requirements. Easy picking, loading and check out are now possible with FleetLoader.
- Accurate and Quick Load Design for Multiple Route Types - Each type of route requires different loading patterns. Determine (or assign) equipment to warehouse bays with capacities, preferences or even empty bays for returned goods
- Multiple Loading Strategies - Different delivery operations require different loading strategies. Our warehouse-friendly software allows for greater picking efficiencies by grouping SKUs. Driver-friendly groups product by stop, minimizing the number of bays a driver must visit at each stop
- Pre-Build Orders - Load orders to be picked, built and pre-staged throughout the day, all while continuing to have them allocated to the correct route and truck during the final loading pass
- Load Design to Reduce Product Breakage - Most breakage occurs within the first 10 minutes of a route due to poor packing. FleetLoader's leading loading algorithms allow for proper mixing and stacking to reduce breakage
- Reports - Final load sheet, driver check-out, load validation and pick sheets provide you with all of the detailed information you need
Our customers experience decreased loading time, all while loading more and using less manpower. Customers are able to make better use of their warehouse space and streamline loading operations. After all, a loading plan is no good unless it can be executed quickly and sent out the door with minimum breakage.
