SHIPPING AND RECEIVING PRODUCTS WITH LOADY

Whatever your role in any industrial supply chain is, product transportation is a relevant success factor for your business. Logistics is, where many parties meet and where an effective collaboration among shipping companies, 3rd party logistics partners, truck drivers, and customers is required. Clear logistics requirements in a coherent structure and in a manageable format are a key success factor for efficient communication.

The higher the complexity, the more requirements need to be managed

Industrial plants and sites have their own rules, restrictions, procedures, technical and security specifications – and local, particularities.

Usually, the first controls take place at the gates. Sites need to ensure that trucks and drivers meet the conditions to access the business premises by checking documents, labeling, driver and truck-specific requirements. 

Depending on the product a truck is going to load or unload and the facilities of the concrete (un-)loading point, further requirements apply.

Delays in the logistics processes and especially truck rejections produce waiting and idle times in site logistics and production and impact directly on productivity and asset effectiveness.
