Blue Ocean Consulting, a Kansas City-based custom software development company, was faced with the challenge of eliminating the amount of errors union drivers made while loading transport truck trailers, which delivered automobiles from OEM assembly plants to dealers, and also from dealer to dealer. The errors within the current process were creating waste, inefficiencies and costing the automobile transport company profits.
According to the International Guidelines on Safe Load Securing for Road Transport, due to specified axle loads for maintaining steering and braking ability, transport units are highly sensitive to the position of the center of gravity of the load. Usually, the maximum payload may be used only when the center of gravity is positioned within narrow boundaries of about half the length of the loading spaces.
BOC Solution: By developing a load library application that is delivered to each driver via any mobile device, clearly illustrating a picture of exactly how to load the trailer for that particular mix of automobiles, BOC was able to find a solution to the problem. The result is guaranteed optimum load capacity on each route while also meeting Department of Transportation laws and regulations.
