Understanding Dock Scheduling.

‘’Dock Appointment scheduling can be so much more than simply filling in time slots in a calendar or spreadsheet as they are booked. A true dock scheduling system distinguishes itself by its ability to automate the process and prioritize the traffic based on constraints related to suppliers, carriers, customers, load types, product types and other business priorities. Dock scheduling systems should also feature external web portals, resulting in nearly eliminating the need for phone calls, emails and faxes. This is exactly where real savings are realized!’’, says Greg Braun, Senior VP Sales & Marketing, C3 Solutions.

In conjunction with the launch of its Dock Scheduling ROI Calculator, C3 Solutions outlines 7 practical examples of how dock scheduling systems can improve existing processes due to its collaborative and automated features:
