Elemica’s Time Slot Booking solution enables shippers and carriers to collaborate in order to streamline the flow of trucks at loading docks and delivery facilities. Our solutions handle all types of single and multi-product shipments; bulk and packed goods, single load/unload point and multi load/unload point. Appointment times are visible to both you and the carrier and transmitted directly into your ERP system. Either party can assign, modify, or cancel appointments. And for security, carriers can only see loads they have conformed.
Elemica’s Time Slot Optimization solution allows you to propose slot options to your carriers or allows your carriers to get options themselves. Slot options are based on sophisticated planning logic such as resource, adjacency, and labor constraints along with preference logic and full reporting capabilities. Complex loading processes, with location and resource constraints are made possible by minimizing scheduling gaps and obeying all constraints - which is impossible to do manually.
