ONE PLATFORM FOR RAMP OWNERS AND USERS

MINIMIZATION OF WAITING TIME

DIGITAL CORE PROCESSES AT THE RAMP AT A LOW PRICE

SMOOTHING OF WORKLOAD PEAKS

ALREADY WORTHWHILE FROM A MINIMUM NUMBER OF RAMPS

RampMan® provides a central communication platform between the ramp owner and the forwarder to ensure efficient utilization and smooth operation at the ramp. In an interactive calendar, forwarders or suppliers can see directly at which times a dispatch is possible and thus guaranteed at a specific ramp. At the same time, the ramp owners are aware of the upcoming loading/unloading slots. With the help of RampMan®, ramp utilization can thus be transparently displayed, planned and controlled, and waiting times before the actual loading process - and the associated standing fees - can be permanently reduced.

RampMan® - Functions

  • Hierarchical master data concept: global ramp configuration for the entire plant, for ramp groups or individually per ramp
  • Event-based information and notification system
  • Definition of various influencing factors in order to automatically (pre-)calculate the duration of a time slot, e.g. loading type, volumes, truck sizes etc.
  • Integrated time model (opening times): company holidays, public holidays, times, shift system, special opening times
  • Flexible time slot clocking: specified grid or variable start times, durations (intervals, minimum, maximum, fix, buffers, automatic calculation)
  • Editability: retroactive editing of a booking request based on of the booking horizon
  • Booking mode: single-stage/two-stage processes, automatic confirmation of booking requests after a determined period of time
  • Physical restrictions and special processes: truck types (mega-trailer, small truck 7.5 tons) loading types (FLT, LTL, general cargo, bulk cargo), special loads (foamed materials, hazardous materials)
  • Calendars with Drag&Drop functionality
  • Booking and administration of serial time slots
  • Needs-based allocation of user access (one-time access as well)

Test RampMan®

As part of a first workshop, our experts will introduce you to the standard version of the RampMan® container management software and advise you on possible additional developments to suit your requirements. We can also set up a test version of RampMan® for you.

Efficient in the loading area

The loading area is characterised by high momentum and is therefore a frequent focal point in the supply chain. There are repeatedly (unplanned) bottlenecks on the access roads, car parks, etc. This results in long standing and waiting times, combined with high productivity losses and costs for affected companies. Using a foresighted time slot management system, the ramp capacity utilisation can be presented, planned and managed transparently. Thus, waiting times before the actual loading processes – and associated standing fees – can be permanently reduced. Moreover, there is an improved flow of information between the forwarder and the recipient/sender. Another advantage lies in the uncovering and smoothing of capacity utilisation peaks and capacity bottlenecks. Better predictability results not only with regard to ramp capacity utilisation, but also with regard to the connecting trips of the forwarding carriers.
