Ramps in warehouses: how to account for the simultaneous loading of vehicles

When optimizing logistics, it is very important to create conditions for prompt shipment of goods in a car. But how to prevent a long queue of cars and ensure the continuity of the load?  To solve this problem, ANT-Logistics released a new functionality - taking into account the capacity of the warehouse for simultaneous loading of cars.

Let's go to the Directory Warehouses. Double-click on the required warehouse to open Editing record. In the General tab, in the field Number of ramps select the required value (when the value is Auto, the parameter is not taken into account in the calculation). The number of ramps in warehouse is actually the number of cars that can be loaded at the same time.

Next, in the tab Working time, in the field Load time, enter the time required to load one car (in minutes).

It is necessary to "allow" the car to arrive later - we go to the Directory Vehicles, select the car and in the window Editing record go to the tab Working time. In the field Allow work later - set Yes.

An example of using the functionality.

Output data:

• Number of ramps - 2

• Load time – 20 minutes.

We will create routes:

As you can see, the automatic formation of routes ensures the continuity and optimal operation of the warehouse: two cars arrive for loading at 8:00 a.m., and the other two at 8:20 a.m.

If you are interested in the described functionality, we are ready to demonstrate its operation, perform the necessary settings and provide access to the service. To do this, leave an application on the ANT-Logistics website.
