Challenges faced: congestion and limited ramp space

Elme Metall wanted improvements in its transportation operations as its warehouse struggled with accommodating the influx of incoming traffic. This lack of an organized system led to uneven truck flow distribution throughout the day, resulting in long queues and delays. 

These issues were further compounded by an imperfect internal communication model, leading to miscommunication and human errors that slowed overall operational speed. The primary goals Eme Metall wanted to achieve were:

  • Distributing daily truck flow evenly.
  • Reducing truck queues.
  • Avoiding penalty costs due to delays.
  • Simplifying internal communication.

The impact of GoRamp’s Time Slot Management on Elme Metall's supply chain

At GoRamp, we proposed our Time Slot Management System as a solution to these challenges. Its simple interface allowed Elme Metall staff to distribute workload efficiently while preventing congestion. This system also centralized all details in one place, facilitating smoother communication and reducing the risk of errors in the order process.

Following the integration of GoRamp’s warehouse management solutions, notable improvements were observed:

  • Improved communication: The supply chain communication became more effective and transparent with real-time visibility.
  • Controlled traffic flow: The system managed the flow of incoming traffic, eliminating congestion and jams around the warehouse.
  • Reduced waiting times: Drivers experienced shorter waiting periods, alleviating pressure on warehouse staff.
  • Significant cost and time Savings: Elme Metall achieved a 25% reduction in operating costs and a similar increase in time savings.
