The complete guide to Dispatch Management Software

As the demand in the supply chain industry is increasing, the logistics and transportation industries rely more on technology to streamline the operation to prevent any shipping delays.

The process is a lot more complicated than simply sending a delivery truck to pick up the package they’d like to deliver. There are many questions you need to address, such as delivery schedule, driver/vehicle assignments & availability, routes considering traffic, and tracking process.

These are the challenges of dispatch management, but these same issues are addressed with effective dispatch management software.

 

What is a Dispatch Management Software?

A Dispatch Management Software is a process of organizing, assigning, and optimizing delivery schedules and routes for businesses in the delivery, maintenance, and service industries. Dispatch Management Software optimizes your routes and schedules while maximizing efficiency, and minimizing costs.

 

How Dispatch Management Software works

By integrating with GPS tracking and mobile apps which provide real-time updates, you can track the real-time whereabouts of your vehicles, traffics conditions, and assignments of available carriers. This, along with advanced routing algorithms, provides automated assignments for pickups, drop-offs, service calls, deliveries, etc.  These applications can provide Proof of Delivery or Service completion, with photos, signatures, and driver notes.

Keeping track of the locations and statuses of drivers allows you to improve your dispatching. It also helps connect a dispatcher with drivers for faster, better communication.

The software can help schedule plan, optimize routes, providing real-time routing, monitoring driver behavior, alert notifications, and calculate total route costs which allow your company to lower turnaround times and costs.

Why does using Dispatch Management Software dramatically improves your business’s efficiency and performance?

Leveraging dispatch management software brings you huge benefits by automating every process.

Without an efficient dispatch system in your business, time is wasted manually tracking the vehicles, planning routes, and managing driver schedules. With dispatch management software, managing all these processes is automated and easy.

 

Key aspects of dispatch management software

 

Better delivery routes

Instead of planning routes manually, dispatch management helps you generate optimal travel routes more efficiently.

Based on which vehicle is closest and available, service time commitments, and route preferences, what kind of capacity the vehicle has, traffic, the application provides planned routes with information on the estimated arrival time and mileage of each stop and route. Optimal routes will result in faster delivery & service times, increased customer & driver satisfaction, and cost savings.

 

Reduced service costs

Effective dispatch management not only saves time by optimizing routes but also saves money. Drivers spend less time on the road, along with optimized and improved routes, which results in reduced fuel consumption and reduced operation time.

According to ABI Research, the cost savings from having a dispatch management system could be well over 12% in profitability and 13% in vehicle utilization with a 15% decrease in travel time.

Dispatch management software also provides you with impactful reporting so that you can see precisely which areas need to be improved to lower costs and increase profits.

 

Improve customer & driver satisfaction

Customers always want to know where their packages are and when they are expected to receive their packages.

Dispatch management software can provide both you and your customers with real-time updates on driver’s whereabouts and estimated delivery schedules. Some applications allow clients to communicate directly with the driver.

These tools increase driver satisfaction because you don’t have to worry about a delivery delay due to unexpected traffic conditions, reducing driver’s stress levels. It can also avoid any irregular schedules by optimizing routes, assignments of available drivers and vehicles.

 

Improve driver behavior and safety

Real-time monitoring and data enable a dispatcher to measure driver behavior and safety. Dispatch management software allows a dispatcher to track the delivery process in real-time and respond to emerging issues through phone calls or chat. Dispatch management software will notify a dispatcher and driver via notifications whenever unexpected issues happen.

GPS asset tracking

Cargo theft is a headache for companies with multiple warehouses and operational lines of business. It is challenging to keep track of all vehicles/assets and take care of unexpected events. Without appropriate action, you are at higher risk of losing credibility with your clients as well.

How GPS telematics help detect and mitigate cargo theft

The No. of businesses tracking assets is expected to exceed 114 million by 2025 as we mentioned in a recent blog. This is a significant increase in demand for location-based and asset tracking services in the next few years. The industry started taking advantage of the benefits of GPS tracking.

 

What exactly GPS tracking can help?

 

Real-time tracking

With GPS Tracking, you can locate exactly where your vehicles/assets are when they are stolen. Based on the data from GPS Tracker, you can also check travel history so you will know where your vehicles/assets were stolen, how they traveled to the final destination and where they are now.

Geofencing

GPS Tracking has an amazing feature, Geofences. It is a virtual border drawn on the map in a GPS tracking system. You can create a geofence area where you would like to mark yards, clients, even routes. You draw the geofence border like the photo below. Once the geofence is created, it is used as a trigger for alerts when your vehicles/assets enter or exit from the geofence area. As soon as the GPS tracking detects the activity, it will send you an alert. In case of theft, once the GPS tracker detects unauthorized movements, you will receive alerts so that you can immediately act against the event.

Monitor & track your assets

This is a major feature when it comes to GPS tracking. Literally, it tracks your assets and locates where your valuable assets are in real-time. If your asset is missing, you can track your asset using data sent by a GPS tracking tag.

Not only tracking your assets, but also monitoring your assets can increase security and reduce theft.

In fact, up to $1 billion in equipment, materials and appliances are stolen from construction sites every single year, and less than 25 percent is recovered, according to the National Equipment Register. With GPS tracking, any unauthorized movement or activity will be reported to you and you can act quickly.

Improve safety and save money

Working in the construction industry can be life-threatening. In fact, 20 percent of worker deaths in the United States are in construction according to the statistics from United States department of labor. GPS tracking devices play a huge role in preventing critical accidents and increase safety. GPS tracking devices can provide reports and notifications regarding the driving habits of their workers. It can also establish a baseline score across all drivers in your fleet based on their driving habits. It is an easy and intuitive way to provide coaching to your drivers by analyzing and highlighting the top critical events that contributed to their scores.

Here are statistics with regard to the medical costs and possible saving by coaching safety to construction workers;

  • Construction companies save $4 to $6 for every $1 invested in safety programs
  • In 2019, the average cost of a medically consulted injury was $42,000, while the average cost per death was $1,220,000
  • On average, construction companies spend 3.6 percent of their budgets on injuries, but only 2.6 percent on safety training

Safety can be improved by not only workers but also by the quality of equipment. Using GPS tracking comes with other benefits, such as capturing and reporting fuel information and comprehending equipment/vehicle’s life cycle.

Efficient use of equipment

Using equipment efficiently helps save money. When your heavy equipment is idling, it means you are losing profits and it results in increasing wear. According to On-Site, it says that “Manufacturer Komatsu estimates that an average machine’s idle time is 40 percent. It is estimated that an hour of idle time has the same impact on an engine as driving approximately 40 kilometres (25 miles) because the combustion process is affected. Idling increases the likelihood of the oil temperature dropping below 100 C, which can cause water to build up and result in fuel dilution and increased acids, all of which accelerate engine wear.”(On-Site) .

GPS tracking software can provide a powerful dashboard to plan, control, and manage the costs of vehicle maintenance. Leverage those data, and you can reduce idling.

Telematics can improve driver’s safety and retention during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Under uncertain circumstances due to COVID-19, strict restrictions have been imposed almost every month. This has huge impact on the transportation industry, especially long-haul drivers. Even though truck drivers are exempted from COVID-19 restrictions, they experience job stress from many sources. In addition, it is obvious that these COVID-19 restrictions accelerated their stress level too.

Truck driver shortage

North America is facing a serious shortage of truck drivers. According to the American Trucking Association (ATA), the shortage of truck driver was 60,800 and is estimated to reach 160,000 by 2028 in U.S. Whereas, Canada is expected to short 25,000 truck drivers by 2023 according to a study from Trucking HR Canada.

truck driver shortage

projected vacancies in the trucking & logistics sector

This estimated trend and the stressful environment caused by COVID-19 could accelerate the shortage of truck drivers and exacerbate disruptions to supply chains in near future.

What’s major stress factors for truck drivers

The stress factors for truck drivers range from a salary to pressure of on-time delivery.

The following are some stress factors for truck drivers;

  • Long hours
  • Tight deadlines
  • Difficult weather
  • Dangerous drivers
  • Low salary
  • Social isolation
  • Distance from home
  • Road rage and fear of violence

How telematics can improve driver’s health, safety and retention

There are 5 ways you can improve driver’s health, safety and retention aside from increasing salary.

  1. Monitor driver’s behavior

Monitoring driver’s behavior can prevent unnecessary accidents and train their behavior. With telematics, you can gain insight to reduce dangerous events, such as harsh breaking, speeding, reckless driving, and driver fatigue. A.I. dash camera are the best tool to detect potential unsafe habits and improve driver safety. They are equipped with sensors that can detect when drivers violate compliance like identifying driver fatigue. It will notify fleet Managers of unsafe behaviors like this to prevent unnecessary accidents.

Astreon’s latest A.I. Dash cameras can prevent pedestrian collisions, notify drivers of fatigue, lane departure, general collisions for distracted driving, and so much more. The benefit is not just after the fact coaching to prevent future incidents, but live and real time accident avoidance in the vehicle.

  1. HOS (Hours-of-service) compliance

HOS (Hours of service) are mandated rules referring to the maximum amount of time a commercial motor vehicle driver is permitted to be on duty including driving time, and length of rest periods to conduct the truck driver’s job safely.

(For more details about the HOS, check our blog: Hours of Service regulation changes. )

Using HOS brings your business huge benefits. Drivers receive alerts when they violate compliance, when to stop working/take rest. It helps drivers increase safety and your business saves time and money. It enables you to utilize resources effectively and optimize scheduling with powerful tools while many drivers are dealing with new restrictions and procedures.

Astreon ELD is a fully a fully compliant ELD solution for upcoming Canada, and US rule sets. Our solution enables carriers to be fully compliant with the mandate while staying adaptable with client needs and requests.

  1. Route optimization

Traffic delay and adverse roads under tight schedule are frustrating for drivers. The routes can change due to unpredicted weather and traffic incidents on the route. Knowing which routes are optimal is one of the important ways for fleet managers to reduce driver’s stress, delivery time and improve customer and driver’s satisfaction. In order to provide the best route to drivers, you need an advanced fleet management system offering the best routes based on the weather, traffic conditions and other factors.

Astreon’s fleet management can optimize routes to get your divers where they need to be faster & safer and complete more jobs within the same time period. Efficient routes also help by prolonging vehicle life span and eliminating unnecessary driving.

  1. Improve communication with drivers and provide better training

Accurate communication between dispatchers and drivers helps reduce human errors, save time and improve customer satisfaction. Poor communication regarding pay, home time, training, and performance can be one of the biggest sources of driver’s stress. To improve driver’s safety, health, and retention, fleet companies need to have advanced fleet management tools to assess driver’s performance, communicate with drivers effectively and train them by observing their driving behavior.

  1. Vehicle maintenance

Having well-maintenance vehicles keeps your drivers on schedule and helps them to complete their job on time. Planning routine maintenance like oil changes, repairs and reducing breakdowns will lead to driver’s productivity.

5 ways to reduce fleet operational costs

Most Fleet Managers face difficulties reducing vehicle and equipment-based expenses, especially operational costs. Operating costs increase if you don’t know which factors cause the surge.

In 2019, the Avg. of marginal costs per mile incurred by motor carriers dropped 9.3% to $1.65 as the below table shows from ATRI;

The following image shows a quick overview on what the greatest operating costs for Fleets are by percentage.

the cost of trucking

Your operating costs may be like this, or you may not know the exact cost per item if you lack proper reporting tools.

Thanks to new technology and Artificial Intelligence, knowing the actual operational costs and predictive maintenance costs is a lot easier and much faster for Fleet Managers to make decisions when it comes to reducing Fleet operational costs.

Fleet Management platforms today provide Fleet Managers with full control of maintenance, safety, dispatch, and management of drivers’ workload.

By monitoring real-time data and driver behavior provided by a Fleet Management platform, you can pinpoint rising costs when they emerge and plan to reduce the operating costs.

5 ways to reduce Fleet Operational costs

Here are 5 ways to reduce Fleet operational costs with a Fleet Management system.

1. Optimize routes

Inefficient routes hugely affect your operation costs by consuming more fuel, reducing your Fleet’s productivity, and it also leads to delivery or service delays.

However, GPS Fleet Tracking provides you with optimal routes which help prolong vehicle life span and eliminating unnecessary driving time. Fuel costs are one of the largest factors in Fleet expenses. By providing an easy search of locations, you can reduce fuel utilization and fuel waste. The route optimization given by GPS Fleet Tracking helps on-time or quick delivery which can also improve customer service.

2. Assess Fleet costs

Understanding how much your operational costs per mile is critical to analyze which factor is causing more expense. You might get the number from profit/loss statements by comparing it with prior statements to see the overall expense trend. However, this method is not accurate and can be fluctuate depending on the needs if a given operation.

To examine your actual operating costs on a weekly or monthly basis, you need Fleet Management software to plan, control, and manage costs of operating costs. With the management tool, you can record all works, parts, and costs of each unit so the cost per mile of each unit can be calculated easily and accurately.

3. Educate drivers

Unsafe driving habits can have a huge impact on Fleet productivity and cost-efficiency. Reckless driving causes preventable accidents and unnecessary repairs. If your company is larger, managing all vehicles and drivers becomes much more complicated.

With Fleet Management software, it is simple to monitor your driver’s behavior in real time. Fleet Managers can also establish a baseline score across all drivers in your Fleet based on their driving habits. It is an easy and intuitive way to provide coaching to your drivers by analyzing and highlighting top critical events that contributed to their score. As the result, your operational costs will be optimized by improving engine idling, speeding, and other undesirable behaviors.

4. Reduce idling

Idling time attributes to one of the biggest unknown operating costs with unnecessary fuel consumed. According to Natural Resources Canada, idling Wastes Fuel and Money. For the average vehicle with a 3-litre engine, every 10 minutes of idling costs 300 milliliters (over 1 cup) in wasted fuel – and one half of a liter (over 2 cups) if your vehicle has a 5-litre engine. Unnecessary idling wastes fuel – and wasted fuel is wasted money.  Average annual idling at 30 minutes per day, would cost a Fleet Owner $8,694 per year for a Fleet of 30 vehicles.  That more than pays for the cost of implementing a Fleet Management solution, without considering any other ROI metrics.

5. Analyze Fleet lifecycle

If you know the best timing of maintenance, repairs, inspections, car washes, etc, you can prolong the lifespan of your vehicles without spending unnecessary costs. In addition, keeping your vehicles longer than necessary could cost you more than leasing new ones.

With a Fleet Management system, Fleet Managers can analyze and make key decisions on the timing of vehicles replacements by monitoring and Tracking data of Fleet maintenance, fuel usage, utility, vehicle wear, breakdown, accidents incurred by bad driving behavior.
