Along with delivering on efficient routes and maximizing customer satisfaction, lumber and building material logistics has the added complication of optimizing the capacity of every delivery route—routes that are under capacity waste time and money, while routes that are over capacity simply cannot be run.
With Elite EXTRA, dispatchers can easily manage this tradeoff along with countless other difficulties that may arise when delivering lumber and building supplies. You can ensure every route is run at optimal capacity with Elite EXTRA’s capacity alerting and asset scheduling features. Also, increase customer satisfaction with photo/signature proof of delivery and real-time ETA alerts!
Utilize the asset scheduler to plan out your drivers’ days and week in a clean calendar view. Time windows and required stop time are taken into account automatically and will allow your team to see if there will be any conflicts prior to the route starting. Once the schedule is complete, easily dispatch the routes to your drivers at the required times.
Auto-Route allows you to select a group of orders and automatically optimize routes for a specific number of drivers or vehicles. Or, select a group of orders and allow the system to build routes that fulfill your time windows with the least amount of drivers. Select any order and Auto-Suggest will run a full audit of all your drivers’ locations to find the best driver to complete that order.
Your drivers, equipped with the EXTRA driver mobile application, can gather electronic signatures or take photos at the point of delivery or service. All signatures and photos are automatically uploaded to the web where they are attached to a proof of delivery or service document in EXTRA. Those documents can then be set to automatically email to your customers or your team.
Elite EXTRA has the ability to build routes based on the different capacities of a vehicle. This will help ensure that you do not build routes that are over capacity and alert you prior to assigning it to a driver. Vice versa, this can help make sure that you are utilizing your vehicles full capacity to maximize the efficiency of every route.
Optimized routes are the first step in ensuring efficiency in your delivery or service operations. By utilizing EXTRA’s optimization engine, your routes will be built according to customer time windows, traffic, proximity, customer preferences, and much more. Optimization happens in seconds, allowing you to get your drivers on the road as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Elite EXTRA has partnered with some of the top ERP, POS, inventory, and eCommerce platforms in a number of industries to make integrating your order data into the system a breeze! Due to Elite EXTRA’s cloud-based software and dedicated team, the solution is capable of integrating with any platform your business relies on.
