Truck Visit Management
Maximize capacity, get 100% visibility
With Nallian's Truck Visit Management you coordinate freight pick ups and drop offs in a streamlined way - from driver registration at the digital front desk to slot management to sharing freight details. So you increase throughput at the dock door, eliminate waiting times and make optimal use of resources.
A digital, streamlined approach to cargo pick ups and drop offs
Say goodbye to an inefficient, paperbased process that involves a lot of admin, emails and phone calls. Instead, coordinate and communicate with freight forwarders and trucking companies online and in real-time. From the (self)registration of truck drivers to the exchange of shipment details to the management and booking of dock door capacity.

Digital Front Desk
Know who is picking up / dropping off
With this fast and easy (self-)registration module, every visit is registered by the driver at the Digital Front Desk upon arrival. Visits can also be pre-announced by the forwarder or trucking company via the online app. Optionally, the driver can manually add shipment details when registering.

Steer & know who is picking up / dropping off what and when
Channel activity as you manage dock door capacity according to a wide range of parameters (such as location, cargo type, vehicle type, import/export, ULD/BUP, etc). Trucking Companies and Freight Forwarders book time slots via an intuitive booking form to enjoy priority treatment and eliminate waiting times.

- Have visibility on all incoming and outgoing freight
- (Un)load faster as you can proactively prepare goods and equipment (when combined with Slot Booking)
