Carrier Management

Drop Trailer and Preload Programs

CDS has programs with carriers to allow a trailer to be dropped at a CDS yard or facility for deferred unloading as well as pre-loading for a future order. This dramatically reduces dwell time for a driver and helps the carrier to maintain its trailer inventory efficiently.

Trailer Inspection

CDS personnel inspect trailers for proper safety and environmental conditions for both inbound receipts and outbound shipments. Appropriate documentation (including image files) can be prepared and emailed with inspection results.

Yard Management

For CDS facilities with drop yards, yard management provides detailed activity information for trailers and drivers from the point of entry to the point of exit. This data is very useful for both clients and carriers providing dwell time, activity, and trailer inventory reporting (trailers, like product, are inventoried via RF devices). Drop trailer inventory can also be used to optimize unloading based on order inventory needs.
