Inconso has updated its dock and slot management system, InconsoDSM, to offer better loading processes and shorter waits. The solution has expanded functionalities and a reworked graphical dashboard. In addition, ramp operators, carriers and forwarders can now also use the web-based solution from the private cloud.

InconsoDSM can differentiate ramp function areas and properties, including shifts and plant calendars and can enable the allocation of loading and unloading time slots adapted to capacities and resources.

The new release has improved dashboard functions in order to consistently monitor trucks, time slots and statuses. Databases for reporting and deviation analyses (target/actual comparisons), which are available via an integrated statistics dashboard, are also taken into account.

Transport service providers and suppliers can access the inconsoDSM booking portal for booking and managing time slots and informing drivers, e.g. by e-mail or text message, about changes made to the time slots by the shipper.

The system will integrate with Inconso YMS or WMS software. It is available in the cloud over Inconso’s own data centre, which means users do not have to provide infrastructure.
