PSItms dispatching

Efficient transport planning

Dispatching manages all components needed to handle your transport efficiently. These include:

Resource management for optimised handling of everyday tasks.

Automatic transport planning with interactive dispatching in two stages:
1. Automatic planning suggested by the system
2. Interactive dispatching based on automatic planning

Pre-planning: Pre-planning enables the creation of pre-defined runs which are created in dispatching, one-for-one with the operational orders.For example, pre-planning scenarios are created for different validity periods.

Interactive dispatching. Its modules modify the results of the automatic transport planning according to the current requirements, and approve them for implementation. The approval process can be automated to minimise user interaction. The system automatically generates dispatch suggestions.

Your benefits

  • Increased efficiency in dispatching
  • Reduction of process and travel costs
  • Time saved by automated processes
  • Improvement of “overview and planning”

Features:

Integrated intermodality:

  • Road, rail, inland navigation, maritime transport, air
  • Schedule management

Efficient use of staff:

  • Store employee qualifications (driving licence, language skills, etc.)
  • Manage staff costs and operating times

save goods in transit and transport unit types:

  • Enter items/item types
  • Manage transport units
  • Define assignment of goods to modes of transport using transport options
  • Define assignment of goods to each other via rules and bans on mixed loading

Define and manage a vehicle fleet:

  • Define the features of the vehicle fleet from a logistics, technical and commercial viewpoint
  • Payload, combinations, service life, maintenance times
  • Planning parameters: operating times, costs, capacities, loading equipment types
  • Management of in-house and third-party vehicles

Interactive optimisation by the dispatcher

  • Using a Gantt chart (electronic dispatching board)
  • Using tabular views (grouped according to transport sections, runs and run locations)
  • Using various planning horizons (hours, days, weeks, months)

Define additional equipment:

  • Equipment related or not related to the vehicle (e.g. attached forklift)
  • Consider weights, set-up times, costs

Efficient dispatching based on dispatching cycles

Optimisation of routes, storage space and costs
