Simple smartphone solution for managing logistics tasks
An unexpected delivery arrives at the warehouse and things get hectic: the shift supervisor now needs to find a forklift truck operator and assign them the transport job. Some time later the operator reports the job has been completed, but not before valuable time has been lost. What’s needed is a more efficient solution, and that’s where the Linde Truck Call app comes in. The app simplifies the allocation of transport jobs within the fleet and streamlines communication between shift supervisors and operators significantly.
For the Linde Truck Call app:
- Smartphone or tablet
- Android® 6.0 or higher
- Internet access
For the Linde Truck Call website:
- PC or tablet
- Updated web browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Firefox, MS Edge, Apple Safari)
- Internet access
Whether it’s an unexpected delivery or a standard job, the Linde Truck Call app means shift supervisors no longer have to give operators instructions face-to-face. They can simply enter the transport job and its priority level into the system using their smartphone or tablet. More specific details about the job can also be added using photos, documents and comments. The app then assigns the job to a specific group of trucks. If an operator accepts the job online, it is no longer visible for the other operators in the group. Once the job has been completed, the shift supervisor immediately receives confirmation from the operator.
