Administration of events is absolutely key to the entire transport process. Through effective administration and documentation of events, documentaton that requires action, the system forces each step to be taken and concluded promptly. In this way the life cycle of a load can be effectively managed throughout the course of the transport job.
The system can be set up so that completing certain events, or reaching prescribed milestones, that require action to be taken, will alert the necessary parties. The value of this feature in transport management systems is clear. Allowing for proactive management, taking action immediately to improve or correct service levels and to ensure that a load doesn’t wait around “in limbo” costing you money.
