Overview

The Truck Load Module is used to provide greater accountability for assets loaded and unloaded from trucks. Situations can be caught where, for example, an asset is loaded onto a truck, but neither delivered during the run nor scanned off the truck at the end of the day.

Why You Need It

The time investment of a few additional scans, paired with a reconciliation process, can provide valuable information to help identify mistakes in the asset workflow.

How It Works

The basic mechanics of the Truck Load Module:

  • Assets are scanned onto a truck using one or more Load truck actions (Mobile Device)
  • The driver selects his truck in a Pre-Trip action (Optional/Mobile Device)
  • Compare Truck Inventory to Orders checks for any issues during the truck load operation (Optional/ AWS Page: Truck Inventory Report)
  • Sync mobile device(s) if not wireless
  • Create Truck Manifest (Optional)
  • The driver makes deliveries (Deliver/Return) (Mobile Device)
  • The assets left on the truck at the end of the day are scanned off the truck using one or more Unload Truck actions (Mobile Device)
  • Sync mobile device(s) if not wireless
  • After a truck run, the Truck Load Reconciliation OR Create Truck Load page, will point out problems where assets disappeared from the truck or were found on the truck (Web Site)
  • The Find Truck Loads page allows you to finds previously grouped truck actions (Web site)

Facts and Benefits

  • Scanning a truck takes about 5 minutes
  • Find mistakes before trucks leave the facility
  • Eliminates delivering Empty cylinders
  • Helps to locate cylinders that were loaded but never seen again
  • Generate automated and accurate truck manifests

Customizing it for You

  • You must have Locations set up as Location Type = Truck
  • Internal users must have Rugged And Simulator access or Smartphone access, and also must be marked as a Truck Driver. (If you don't have an option to mark users as Truck Drivers, then contact TrackAbout Support to enable the Truck Load/Unload feature.)
