JOB PLANNING & SCHEDULING
With our highly flexible entry screens powered by a web based back-office system we can cater for almost any delivery scenario. Once the jobs are entered on to the system they can be allocated to vehicles in the most logical order, using our planning tool, eliminating paperwork and saving time..
Advanced job provision can be pre-created with the input of minimal data (e.g. number of pallets required) or full product-level data. Subsequent delivery discrepancies are input in a similar way e.g. full load rejection, pallet-level rejection or product-level rejection …. all recorded with accompanying reasons.
All jobs can be viewed as individual jobs or via a "Run List" screen. The Run List consolidates multiple jobs and displays them as single run per row. Managers can "drill down" that view individual job details for runs that are late or have other issues.

A single screen view pulls together core data on planned jobs, run list summaries and run details. Changes to runs and run specifics can be made using easy ‘drag and drop’ methodology. All screens display pallet, weight and revenue information which allows for optimised run creation based on factors such as revenue potential and weight constraints. PODStar also provides a ‘toggle’ button that allows established and changed routes to be viewed from a map perspective, again simplifying the planning process.
