Syntelic Load Planning software includes advanced logic to dynamically size trailer load maps based on order volumes. Unlike other load planning software that relies on a load planner to manually select a trailer template and figure out the right solution based on trial and error, Syntelic can pick the trailer size and then dynamically move bulkheads without human intervention. As a result, Syntelic calculates a wave of load plans and highlights only a select number of loads for load planners to evaluate before approving. This saves on load planning time, freeing up personnel to focus on other priorities.
Sysco’s Chief Operating Officer Ken Spitler says of Syntelic, “With Syntelic, the loader knows exactly where to load all products. The load map gets transferred to the driver, so the driver knows exactly where that product is for that customer on the truck.”
Syntelic’s dynamic compartment sizing includes logic to avoid having overflow pallets and empty pallet postions on a trailer. For example, if business rules allow it, a dry pallet can be planned to go into a cooler compartment, to utilize an available pallet position without the need for a load planner to make a manual adjustment.
“Syntelic’s initial pass at calculating a wave of load plans greatly reduces any time required by a load planner who prior to getting Syntelic had to touch and adjust every load plan,” says Scott Balthaser, VP of sales and marketing at Syntelic Solutions Corporation. “The return on investment also adds up on reduced loading time, less overs shorts and damage, end less unload time.”
