RampMan – Features and benefits

Lean time slot booking as an alternative to yard management systems

In the loading zone, forwarding, shippers, collectors, and plant meet with their different interests, schedules, and sometimes short-notice changes in plan. While large forwarding agencies usually map their delivery traffic in complex yard management systems, businesses with a low or medium number of ramps sometimes still use clipboards and pens. This increases the risk of incorrect or double bookings.

  • No incorrect or double bookings
