Évora, 27th of October, 2022 — The Road Freight sector is complex. Every day thousands of loads and vehicles travel across the world to meet the needs of companies and consumers.
Supporting each vehicle, each driver, each load and each customer, every day traffic managers take action to solve problems: predict when loads are late and inform recipients, restructure the plan due to insufficient driver hours or vehicle breakdowns, inform drivers about changes to the planning, etc…
This month we introduced a tool that traffic managers have been dreaming of. A tool that makes each traffic manager count for two, which allows planning and assisted monitoring of the operation, synchronized in real-time with the drivers.
The creation of new freights is automated, you can create recurring freights or duplicate already created freights, eliminating the need to introduce duplicate information.
All planning is saved in a history, so you can see the activity of each vehicle, trailer, and driver, eliminating the need to manage excel files.
Once the freights are in the system, the traffic manager automatically receives planning recommendations based on the history, with just one click to accept or modify them, greatly reducing the time spent on planning.
The traffic manager can define preferred routes, and all the planning will automatically be routed through them, reducing excess kilometers and unplanned tolls, which translates into a very significant reduction in operational costs.
All the planning and execution of the operation is synchronized in real time with the Meigh Driver App, with all required freight information and designated routes, which drastically reduces the number of phone calls and makes it possible to hire drivers with less local knowledge or experience.
The estimated arrival times of each load are now updated in real time and with notifications, which means that the days where the traffic manager had to estimate the arrival time based on the position of vehicles are gone. This results in a dramatic increase in the anticipation of problems, with your customers valuing professionalism and customer support.
…all this, available immediately, for all drivers and all types of fleets, at the distance of a smartphone.
Today, there is no reason why your fleets are not performing as planned. Build your business on top of a digital platform, instantly.
If your traffic managers still don’t have this tool, don’t waste any more time and book a demo with us.
