Dock Scheduling

Dock scheduling is the use of optimization and scheduling tools to automate dock door and yard schedules. In this system, a dock calendar is maintained, showing all operating constraints, such as open/close time, commodities accepted through the dock door (e.g., refrigerated or ambient) and trailer types accepted. Advanced dock scheduling systems consider both transportation constraints and upstream warehouse constraints like labor and other warehouse resource constraints.
