Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2016
Plan, Execute, Communicate As cities expand they need to be fed increasing the number and type of deliveries required. Modern cities are also limiting access and finding better uses for the space traditionally occupied by commercial and consumer traffic such as Pedestrian Malls. As a result congestion worsens and city amenity reduces. Commercial deliveries now have to compete for access to city based loading docks and loading zones increasing supply chain time and cost pressures. MobileDOCK allows supply chain communities to automatically plan, execute and monitor deliveries seamlessly using automatic booking approvals, with automatic execution optionally linked to boom gates, license plate recognition and street parking sensors. Developed in Australia, MobileDOCK has been extensively used for several years. It has a successful track record in organising commercial deliveries to reducing congestion and greenhouse gas emissions, improving supply chain visibility, delivery throughput, site security and overall city amenity. These benefits flow to the entire supply chain community in areas such as: • City Precincts • City Hubs • Retail Shopping Centres • Sea Ports • Container Ports • Airports A plan is a plan. In a dynamic environment where the delivery task is changing to be faster and more responsive, these plans need to take account of an increasing number and type of constraints and be generated fast. A plan with linked real-time execution makes a plan operational. Automatically monitoring and where necessary correcting this plan based upon feedback from the field in near real time is the foundation of measuring operational performance for all stakeholders. Bestrane recognises this and has assembled a suite of “best of breed” technology and relevant implementation skills to provide its clients substantial savings and extended capabilities. Bestrane also extends this capability to provide visibility out to the end customers with automatic real-time notifications throughout the delivery life cycle, providing a superior customer experience, whilst reducing call centre costs. This is particularly relevant for: • Deliveries (& Pickups) to Home • Service Technicians • Home Carers • Deliveries from Business to Business For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org +61 3 9001 1565 www.bestrane.com.au Level 1, 150 Albert Road South Melbourne For more information contact email@example.com +61 3 9001 1565 www.mobiledock.com Intelligent Docks for Smart Cities 500576A_Bestrane I 2242.indd 1 4/05/2016 12:20 PM
