June 2022 Realease:

June’s release includes additional functionality across Stream Go, Check and Turn. Read on to learn more about this month’s release.

 

Run completion & driver debrief report

 

New

  

The eagle eyed amongst you will have seen that this particular feature release was mentioned very briefly last month. Here’s a more in-depth explanation of these new reports.

When a particular run has been completed, it is now possible to create a pdf report, which provides information on the events for each stop on that run and list any items that have been returned and showing any issues with that particular run. You’ll be able to access and run the report from Action/Print list in the Selected Run section of Advanced Planning. The report is intended for your internal use and is available for delivery/collection runs only.

The report will give details of a run with the following information:

  • Summary of the route/depot/ number of stops etc.
  • Planned and actual start and end times
  • Number of deliveries completed
  • Variance between planned and actual time
  • Details in stop order of planned slot /actual time, order number and customer
  • Details of breaks:
  • Whether the order was Delivered/ Delivered with Issues / Failed / Collected / Missed etc.
  • Details of the items to unload with the reason for return
  • If it was a collection, a list of the items collected will be provided
  • Late times will be shown in red and anything other than a status of Delivered/Collected in full will be shown in red.

Barcode scanning exceptions report

 

New

  

We’ve added a new report which details all non-scanned items following loading of a vehicle by delivery route/run.

Your warehouse supervisors and / or transport planners will find this new report particularly useful for quickly seeing any expected items which were not scanned on to a run so they can take appropriate action to investigate the reason, organise alternative goods, or informing the customer service team etc.

A new ‘export’ option has been added to the Advanced Planning screen. This will be available for a single run or a selection of runs by selecting the export option against either a ‘Selected Run’ or against the ‘Run List’ which can be filtered as required.

The export will be valid for selection against both trunk and delivery runs. We expect subscribers will predominantly use this new export against all runs (routes) for a depot after loading has finished.

Now, subscribers will be able to pass information from Stream into DIRECTOR about individual stops on a run to Teletrac Navman’s in-cab devices.
