As in most manufacturing and industrial environments, technology is having a fundamental effect on the way UK pallets are delivered, creating efficiencies and increased value for member companies and customers alike.
Digital Information Hub increases visibility of your pallets
At the heart of the system is a customer and depot dashboard, which provides extensive and network-wide information in real time. From the home screen of the dashboard, users have full visibility of consignments across the network as soon as they are entered into the system. Live vehicle status screens check locations and deliveries, and enable proactive management of consignments at risk if there are any delivery issues.
Pallet analytics via heat map
A highly advanced graphic heat map displays a comprehensive range of performance measures including delivery type, destination and time period. As your pallets are signed for, the delivery status marker on the screen turns from red to green, indicating that they have been successfully delivered.
Advanced mapped routing helps members to increase the productivity of their vehicles by reducing the mileage they travel, in some cases reducing the number of their trucks on the road, providing environmental benefits. Optimised routing also further enhances the efficiency of the network’s deliveries and in turn improves customer service and satisfaction.
Palletways’ digital information hub breaks new ground in the UK pallet delivery sector, ensuring faster, added value services to customers, and more benefits to network members. For more information, download the brochure here
