Time Slot Management

What is Time Slot Management?

A time slot management system enables customers to choose delivery timings based on availability and convenience. An optimized time slot booking software is used such that logistics managers can plan daily and even hourly dispatches in a more efficient manner.

Following are the ways in which Time Slot Management can improve your logistics:

  1. Streamlines Dispatch Planning and Processes: Shippers can plan loading and unloading to suit specific requirements, avoid traffic and road congestions at peak times and optimize capacity utilization by ensuring staff availability coincides with the arrival and dispatch of goods.
  2. More Visibility: A dashboard view of the entire last-mile delivery process, including dynamic routing, predictive alerts, accurate ETAs, and live tracking of order status, bringing in greater visibility in the system and allowing managers to take effective measures in case of unnecessary delays.
  3. Increased First Attempt Delivery Rate: By delivering at the customer’s preferred delivery window, you save added costs involved in storing, shipping, and delivering undelivered parcels.
