MMOG/LE Requirement 184.108.40.206 – Optimizing Dock Operations
You can optimize dock operations by utilizing shipment load IDs that are used to group shipments and help ensure your dock staff are preparing these shipments based on the carrier’s scheduled window times. Dock personnel can use the Staging Manager to manage and prepare shipments. Management can use the Visual Dispatcher to monitor the status of the shipment as it relates to the Carrier’s scheduled window time (Horizon Start Time / End Time). Once a shipment is within 15 minutes of the Horizon Start Time, the Ship Date and Ship Time will change from black font color to bright bold orange font color; if the Horizon Start Time passes and the shipment has not been scanned and processed, then the bright bold orange text changes to bold red text to alert of this missed window.
