Within the last two years, TransWorks performed “Opportunity for Improvement” sessions with our existing truckload carrier customers, where we focused on discovering labor-intensive tasks that could be further streamlined. A major finding identified that the dispatch planning function required significant daily manual effort outside of existing carrier products. After further investigation, TransWorks determined that the industry lacked an automated planning solution to address this.
As a result, TransWorks developed a new graphical user interface called TimeBLOX DPS—a game-changing innovation for the truckload marketplace. TimeBLOX DPS profoundly changes the way dispatch planners work, by giving them the ability to graphically manage the assignment of tasks, thus providing instant visual feedback on potential conflicts. The TransWorks TimeBLOX technology makes the dispatch planner’s job more interesting, less monotonous, and incredibly efficient. With TimeBLOX DPS, key performance indicators are just a hover or click away. In 2013 TransWorks expanded TimeBLOX DPS to include management of real-time dispatch activities.
