What is an unloading point?
An unloading point describes an address where deliveries can be loaded or unloaded by a means of transport. In addition to the address, information about the spatial conditions at the unloading point is also important. Each type of warehouse usually has its own type of unloading point. This includes, for example, a ramp where the goods are unloaded.
What criteria can be used to direct trucks to unloading points?
- Is the place free on arrival?
- Has the time window for the truck been reached?
- Are sufficient capacities such as forklifts and personnel available at the unloading point?
- Are the call-offs from manufacturing consistent with loading?
- Are there sufficient open spaces for full and empty containers?
