We’re here going to explain how to use the available filters in the trips module of Baymax mobile application to optimize the turnaround time of the trip.

Trip Status filter allows the listing of trucks according to selected status.

We strongly recommend using the trip filter for operations management, list is generated based on the trip information of the trucks.

Idle – a comprehensive list of trucks available for placement with their unloading location of the last trip and present geographical location.

  • Point 1 – State Filter (Apply the state filter to view the idle vehicle in selected geographical state)
  • Point 2 – Unloading location of last trip (Name of the location where vehicle was unloaded for last trip)
  • Point 3 – Idle Since Time (Time since the vehicle unloaded on the last trip)
  • Point 4 – GPS Location (Current GPS location of the vehicle)

Workaround

This filter is primarily for placement team to view the list of vehicle available for placement & the time since they are idle from. Along with state filter, the placement can actually check for idle vehicle in specific locations.

Impact

  • This usage policy can optimise your placement time by 10-50%.

Dispatch – a comprehensive list of vehicle that has been booked / placed but not yet dispatched from the clients godown.

  • Point 1 – Pending Dispatch Since (Time since the vehicle is booked / placed)
  • Point 2 – Origin & Destination (The loading location & the unloading location of the trip)
  • Point 3 – GPS Location (Current GPS location of the vehicle)

Workaround

Once the placement is done by the placement team, your tracking team can take over the task to closely monitor vehicle under dispatch & make necessary calls and arrangement for timely dispatch.

Impact

  • Reduction in vehicle dispatch time by upto 50%.
  • No more unnecessary underpaid or unpaid detentions.

Transit – a comprehensive list of vehicle that has been dispatched and are on the way for destination.

  • Point 1 – Trip Route (Origin & destination name of the trip)
  • Point 2 – Transit Time (Time elapsed since the vehicle is on trip)
  • Point 3 – GPS Location (Current GPS location of the vehicle)

Workaround

Your tracking team can keep a closer look at transit vehicles. Your team can look for unnecessary halts and delays with the help of live time GPS location, trip information & certain tools to monitor trip movement.

Impact

  • Reduced transit time by 10-30%
  • Improved client creditability.

Unloading – a comprehensive list of vehicle that has reached its destination but not yet unloaded.

  • Point 1 – Trip Route (Origin & destination name of the trip)
  • Point 2 – Unloading Time (Time elapsed since the vehicle reached its destination)
  • Point 3 – GPS Location (Current GPS location of the vehicle)

Workaround

The unloading filters servers the purpose for placement team as well as tracking team. The tracking can closely monitor and make necessary actions to speed up or avoid delay in unloading process. The placement team can have an idea for vehicle that will be made available to them for placement in next few hours.

Impact

  • Reduction in vehicle unloading time by upto 50%.
  • No more unnecessary underpaid or unpaid detentions.
  • Improved loading time

Overall Impact

With the improve TAT, you are not just increasing your revenue but reducing your fixed expense that becomes variable with the number of trip.

Assuming a trip from gurgaon to bangalore and time period as industry standard
1). Placement Time - 24 hours
2). Dispatch Time - 24 Hours
3). Transit Time - 72 Hours
