Mitigate terminal congestion and avoid potential mass arrival of trucks during peak periods with TOPS VBS. The module tackles long truck queues outside the terminal causing traffic jams in the terminal’s vicinity by spreading the flow of trucks and containers through the day.

TOPS VBS offers a solution to the widespread issue of disruption brought to the local community and discontent congestion creates in the trucking community as it leads to downtime and lost revenue. The module provides a more active approach to sustain heightened truck turnaround time.

The system focuses on determining the correct flow of trucks into the terminal throughout the day on any day of the week. This is done by dividing the day into many ‘time slots’ each of a specific period (say 1 or 2 hours) than allowing a fixed number of containers to be processed in each time slot.

From the truck bookings made, the terminal can make accurate forecasts to have sufficient gangs and equipment available to service the expected truck movements efficiently. This controlled flow of trucks through the terminal also optimizes the terminal’s use of its resources. Your terminal deserves only optimal levels of efficiency so don’t miss out on our TOPS VBS. 

Benefit of TOPS VBS

Heightened Truck Turnaround Time

The optimal amount of trucks calculated and scheduled, increasing the flow of vehicles entering and leaving the terminal. Strategically planning for the maximum amount of trucks allowed within the terminal eliminates congestion and facilitates task completions for both container delivery and retrieval.

Enhanced Customer Satisfaction

TOPS VBS offering a heightened truck turnaround time supports faster cargo transmission. Truck drivers no longer must sit in long queues and can complete their tasks efficiently without downtime. Customers, as a result, receive their shipments on time, creating overall customer value for all stakeholders.

Execute Accurate Forecasts

TOPS VBS is also a valuable tool in predicting any new forms of congestion within the terminal. The module determines the trends in expected truck movements so that you are aware of potential hotspots. More importantly, planning is always facilitated with the most useful information to assist in making better decisions.

Increased Control of Trucks

You set the standards and have complete control over all decisions with the various features available in TOPS VBS.

Efficient Terminal Operations

The amount of trucks within a terminal at any given time is all strategically calculated and planned; therefore, truck movements will not interfere with active CHEs operating the yard.

Increased Terminal Revenue

The features and functionality embedded in TOPS VBS offers less downtime and traffic, creating an increase in revenue for your terminal.
