C3 Solutions is pleased to announce that Robert Transport has successfully implemented C3 Reservations – its online dock scheduling system – to manage all deliveries and customer pickups at their Mississauga location.

The diversity of operations at Robert Transport brings appointments from multiple sources into play (pickups, external and internal deliveries, dropped/live loads). And for this reason, it has always been a challenge for appointment coordinators to build a complete and accurate dock schedule.

The implementation of C3 Reservations brought along a standardized process where all parties involved are connected and synchronized, preventing miscommunication errors.

  •     Operations now have the quick visual report of how their day is looking.
  •     Carriers appreciate having appointment numbers and email confirmations.
  •     Customer service reps have easy, real-time visibility on schedule availability and appointment status.
  •     Appointment coordinators enjoy an intuitive and centralized working tool.

Starting day-1, managers could not only rely on accurate record keeping of all appointment activities but also had the tools to balance the dock workload and the reports required to support the operations.

“Robert Transport has been a valued business partner with regards to Yard Management and we look forward to the challenge of working together to optimize their scheduling operation.” says Greg Braun Senior VP Sales & Marketing at C3 Solutions. “Their experience and feedback will no doubt be beneficial to the evolution of our solution.”

“I always say that our appointment desk is the main branch of our operations; it is connected to all different parts of our business,” says Marlon Yumul, Warehouse Manager in charge of the project at Robert Transport, “C3 Reservations gives us the ability to be more efficient and the tools to provide greater service and visibility to our customers.”

C3 Solutions is proud to work with Robert Transport to pioneer innovative site management solutions for the logistics industry.
