Ad Details :

Headline :Dispatcher earns 400€ extra after missing the warehouse work hours on Friday.

Text :This dispatcher used our platform to avoid driver sleepover and get extra delivery done after his truck missed the client's work hours.

The truck was in a delay, driving towards Arnheim, and it was about to miss the working hours of the warehouse on Friday.

There were 2 options. The first was to leave the truck and the driver in the Netherlands over the weekend or, to find a warehouse in the Netherlands that could finish the delivery.

To avoid weekend driver sleepover and extra costs he decided to rent a temporary warehouse with delivery and managed to turn it into extra profit.

In 15min they got an offer for 178,50 EUR for 4 EURO pallets for a safe Indoor warehouse with final transport to the customer.

Because the truck was empty so quickly, the dispatcher managed to find a new order for the driver to deliver on the way back and earned something extra.

Ad Details :

Headline :Dispatcher avoids delay and penalties after rejected unloading of cargo because of a strike

Text :A few days ago we helped a dispatcher complete an unlucky delivery and avoid penalties for the next order.

For some reason, no one informed the transport company of the strike after confirming the delivery date for the cargo.

This was a big problem for Dispatcher. He had a truck full of cargo for a failed delivery, no alternative warehouse and he accepted an order for loading new cargo in 1 hour to drive back from Italy. If he would not be able to find a solution by the end of the hour, the order would be canceled and on top, the company would need to pay the penalties.
