Manage Transport Orders More Efficiently
A truck is delayed due to traffic conditions or an unplanned delivery arrives at the warehouse. It has to be unloaded quickly. This requires information on where to find the next available forklift for the specific load. The long communication routes here often cause further delays and empty runs.
For the Linde Truck Call app:
- Smartphone or tablet computer
- Android® 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or higher
- Internet access
For the Linde Truck Call website:
- PC or tablet computer
- Current web browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Firefox, MS Edge)
- Internet access
The Linde Truck Call app offers a solution for this. With the app, shift supervisors can easily and efficiently enter transport orders into the system via smartphone or tablet and at the same time assign an urgency level to the order. The app then informs all available drivers. If a driver accepts the order online, it disappears from the system. Once the transport is complete, the shift supervisor receives a confirmation. Photos, documents and comments can be added to clarify the order. In order to adapt the app to different companies' needs and fleets, the shift supervisors can first create set up their vehicles with the corresponding equipment and properties via a web portal or app. At the same time, the app will be installed on smartphones for the drivers.

Functions of the App
1. Setting up jobs
The shift supervisor enters their order in the app. To do this, they enter the position and storage location of the goods and determine the priority and time frame of the order.
2. Allocating jobs
The order is sent to all drivers. If one driver accepts the order, it is no longer visible to all other drivers.
3. Pending jobs
The app provides the shift supervisor with a list of all open, running and completed transport orders. They also receive an overview of which driver is currently executing which order.
4. Completed jobs
Once a transport order has been completed, the driver confirms it in the app. The shift supervisor automatically receives confirmation and information that the driver is available again.
