Labor management in the DC and on the road

By DC Velocity Staff

Tom Zosel Associates, known for its engineered standards for warehouse labor management, has expanded its ProTrack labor management software to include a module for truck drivers. ProTrack Drivers is aimed at private fleets with vehicles that make multiple stops. The software creates reports and analyzes delivery times based on benchmarks defined by engineered labor standards. ProTrack quantifies driver and equipment utilization, by the hour and by activity, broken down by order. A driver training module is now in development.

The complementary ProTrack Mobile offering tracks vehicle and engine activity and includes a built-in GPS for route instructions. Dispatchers can revise those instructions remotely to reflect changing requirements. The system also includes an Intermec scanning device to capture delivery data, making it ideal for consumer and direct-to-store deliveries.
