Need better visibility and control of stock movements? Mandata has introduced a new Cross Docking solution enabling haulage operators to track movements of stock unloaded from vehicles and into locations within a depot.
Using Mandata Cross Docking the Mandata TMS transport management system is instantly updated as operators scan goods on and off vehicles using an integrated Cross Docking App. This gives traffic planners a real-time view of stock movements within a depot.
Other functionality includes the ability to carry out a sweep to find the last known location of stock and conduct checks to relocate stock to the correct location.
The new functionality for the Mandata TMS transport management system gives real-time visibility of the cross docking process. It also ensures stock is situated in the correct location once scanned off vehicles, ready for the outbound journey.
Using the new Cross Docking module gives the traffic office visibility of the cross docking progress as well as stock movements. Operators scan goods off and on vehicles or trailers, using an integrated Cross Docking app. They can also run checks to relocate stock or find missing stock.
Incoming loads are pre-planned and depot locations automatically assigned based on the job or work type, delivery type or postcode. When a vehicle arrives, the traffic office sees the real-time cross docking status and progress.
Other features within the Cross Docking app allow operators to control the movement of stock from within the depot or warehouse ensuring stock can be found or relocated easily. Any movements are automatically updated within the Mandata TMS for the traffic office to see.
This functionality is one of the latest features added to the Mandata TMS transport management system to simplify and streamline processes for hauliers.
