Warehouse and DC dock operations of any size and scope can now rely on 4SIGHT Connect Digital Gate from 4SIGHT Logistics Solution (Carrollton, TX) to vastly improve driver scheduling and communications. Warehouse and DC dock operations typically face several activity management challenges every day such as drivers arriving early, late or without an appointment, docks becoming backed up as a result of poor scheduling, and even a lack of or breakdowns in direct driver communication. And if such operations even use a dock scheduling process, it’s most likely manual in nature and disconnected involving multiple people across several departments. Relying on 4SIGHT Connect Digital Gate as the ideal gate access solution, facilities can:
- Proactively schedule docks for loading/unloading.
- Send drivers to the right location, based on availability, and upon arrival.
- Monitor drivers’ check-in/check-out status and capture metrics on how long drivers spend at facilities.
- Provide authority to turn drivers away if needed.
- Simplify communication between drivers and facilities via text messaging and voice calls.
- Ensure real-time carrier notifications.
- Provide reports and documentation needed to refute any detention charges.
