Drivers can avoid long waits at warehouses with Facility Insight app
Keep Truckin has recently released a great new app as part of their electronic logging devices. Facility Insights is designed to show wait times at 60,000, and growing, different sites. Keep Truckin uses a huge database, (6.7 million unique visits for a six-month period!) to determine wait times over the course of each day.
This allows dispatchers to make carefully planned decisions about accepting and dispatching loads. This will result in savings to fleet owners who can then avoid detention time pay outs from being waylaid. It will also help maximize a driver’s time given they have to work within a given hours of service.
A survey conducted by OOIDA found that:
- Drivers spend as As many as 40 hours per week waiting to be loaded or unloaded
- Detention costs the industry more than $3 Billion per year
- Wait times cost the public more than $6.5 billion per year
Facility Insights comes as part of the Pro and Enterprise packages.
