Trailer Loading Optimization Webinar

Trailer Loading Optimization Webinar

Have you ever experienced the following:
– Outbound truckloads returning to your dock because they failed a scale inspection.
– Unloading and reloading an outbound truckload with your fingers crossed that it will pass the scale inspection this time.
– Paying fines or penalties because you failed to meet customer delivery appointment times.
– Having experienced loaders call off and being forced to backfill with inexperienced associates on the dock.
– Forcing loaders to consolidate pallets at the dock so all the product will fit on the outbound trailer.
– Customers frustrated because they received product damaged during transit.

If you answered yes to any of these scenarios you’ll definitely want to join Jim Chamberlain of Alpine Supply Chain Solutions and Scott Balthaser of Syntelic as they dive into Trailer Loading Optimization.

Imagine a systematic solution to all of these problems – it exists! Jim has over 30 years experience in supply chain & distribution and has been an end user of Syntelic’s software solution in a 3PL environment. Scott is the President of Syntelic Solutions Corporation, a software solutions organization focused on productivity for outbound distribution operations.
