Our customer is a received depot that were receiving up to 8 x 20’ or 4 x 40’ slots per day total of 16 hours daily.
We were asked to review their operations due to the number of deliveries a day causing the warehouse team to struggle to accommodate any late running vehicles. This reflected in any late running deliveries being turned away costing wasted haulage, wasted labour and resulting in the container being rebooked and possibly incurring rental charges.
We suggested introducing a Drop & Swap delivery system. Containers are now dropped on site overnight between 19.00 – 06.00 and devanned throughout the day.
All bookings are controlled by JAG UFS and the schedule is shared between our customer and the warehouse.
The feedback around the drop & swap operation has all been extremely positive, it has improved operations immensely.
“The impact has been great. We have not had anywhere near the level of calls or issues we were receiving before, so I would just like to extend my huge thanks to you all for helping to arrange and implement this procedure.”
