InTrack Dock & Yard Management – optimizing your logistics resources
The Bosch InTrack Gate and Dock Apps are apps for the Dock & Yard Management of plants and warehouses. It includes security processes and an efficient management of docks and yard as well as staff allocation. The basis for an efficient and fast turnover of goods is an anticipatory planning. Only when the time window for the arrival of a vehicle is known the docks can be optimally utilised. Moreover, manpower will be deployed in a efficient manner and delivery traffic on the site controlled. The InTrack Gate and the Dock App as well as the accompanying web application InTrack Web make all these processes even more convenient: Together, these components enable communication between the logistics services provider, driver and hub as well as between the control station and the warehouse employees. The employees are always informed in real time about the arrival time of the vehicles and about there whereabouts on the yard. As a result docks can be automatically reserved and goods can be loaded or unloaded after registration without delay. If the arrival time changes, InTrack Web adjusts the planning and dock reservation flexibly and completely automatically.
It's that easy
All advantages at a glance
Optimize your goods received and goods issue and plan the utilization of ramps and personnel more reliably than ever before:
Optimal utilization of docks
For registered transports, the web application automatically allocates a dock for the time window in which the delivery is expected.
Efficient use of manpower
Thanks to real-time data, the exact time, the number of packages and their volume as well as the weight of the delivery are known. This allows you to plan exactly how many people will be needed at the dock, and when they will be available again.
Optimal traffic flow control
By using the InTrack Gate App, you know who is driving into your yard and how many vehicles are there - so you keep track of traffic and deliveries.
Simplified and flexible processes
With the InTrack Dock App, you can turn manual processes into IT-supported, automated processes while still remaining flexible: you have control at all times and can continue to manually assign ramps to deliveries as required.
Thanks to status updates based on real-time data, you always have an overview of the current status of incoming and outgoing goods as well as the current dock occupancy. Moreover the complete history of goods issue and incoming goods, from registration at arrival to departure from the yard including all comments, security checklists and pictures taken, are retrieveable.
Using InTrack Web, the carrier reserves a time window for the transport. In combination with the InTrack Driver App geofences can be used which means that as soon as the vehicle reaches a specified point on its way to the delivery location, the Dock App automatically reserves a ramp and updates the expected delivery time based on real-time data.
