The Shipping Cockpit allows the automatic planning of transport units. The progress of the bearing construction is always monitored and can be changed manually. Transport units can be allocated to delivery orders according to size, weight, etc. In addition, planning activities for recurring shipments can be automated (on regular routes). The Shipping Cockpit scans free staging areas in the required time slot of the transport units and assigns them to the deliveries. Other functions which relate to the goods receipt, the goods issue, loading and repackaging can be accelerated by the Shipping Cockpit.
