What is Allocating?

Allocating consignments to drivers is critical in any transport company and being able to allocate quickly and accurately is what makes a good (TMS) Transport Management System. To minimise risk for your business, ideally, you want either an automated system or multiple people in your logistics operation able to handle allocations to drivers.

Having your allocations handled by a TMS that can provide automated features reduces your risk of relying on key staff that can perform this task. If they suddenly leave your business or are away for long periods of time you need to have a system in place that allows anyone in the business to jump in and quickly understand the process of performing these allocation tasks.

Speed & Accuracy

Speed and accuracy are crucial for making your allocation process a success within your logistics operation. Having the capability to allocate jobs quickly means you don't have drivers standing around waiting for their delivery run. Most importantly, having accuracy will not only save you time but money across your operation.

Time is critical in logistics, with most operators being held accountable by their customers to reach certain SLA targets. Having a system like CartonCloud can help speed up your allocation process, increase accuracy and provide more transparency to the management team to stay on top of what's happening on any given day.

Benefits of Using CartonCloud

No more shuffling papers into pigeon holes or chasing your drivers for signed proof of deliveries. With CartonCloud's automated allocations feature you'll be able to build rules and logic based on postcodes, enabling CartonCloud to automatically allocate consignments to drivers as jobs come through, while still allowing you to go in and manually allocate drivers when needed.

When allocating jobs on CartonCloud, a map view shows you where all your consignments for the day are, making allocating jobs even easier. With this view, you're able to see where the consignment is actually being delivered to, so if there is a need to switch drivers before finalising the runs, it's easily done.
