FACTS™ D.M.S. – Dock Management
Complement your dock operation with DMS, Carrier Logistics' Dock Management System. Whether for inbound or outbound freight, DMS improves dock productivity, enhances loading efficiency, reduces mis-directs and increases worker accountability.
When P&D units return to the terminal, freight gets scanned while it is being unloaded, proving custody of the freight, providing the dockworker with routing instructions, and marking the shipment as on the dock. Work assignments, created from manifest numbers or city routes, can be viewed online, eliminating the need for manual dock productivity tracking.
For inbound traffic, DMS facilitates the planning of delivery routes hours before the freight arrives. The system provides decision support for assigning deliveries to the best route, taking into consideration such factors as special customer requirements, special handling requirements, and appointment times. Improved route efficiency is guaranteed.
Additional value comes from knowing where your freight is and who loaded it. All scanning information is recorded in the pro history for real-time tracking. CLI's DMS advanced dock management software will take the guesswork out of your business.
