UPN: all inbound and outbound UPN trunks are monitored minute by minute, mile by mile
United Pallet Network has introduced contactless “SmartHUB” Technology to give its membership greater control.
“SmartHUB IT” is a bespoke technology platform created internally by UPN to manage smooth operations across its UK pallet network.
The new “SmartHUB IT” system is focussed on driving optimum performance across all aspects of UPN’s operation. UPN are now totally contactless, which is particularly significant in the current Covid-19 pandemic.
David Brown – UPN MD commented: “UPN have developed “SmartHUB IT” in response to requests from our membership for greater support and control,”
“Now all inbound and outbound UPN trunks are monitored minute by minute, mile by mile, and scheduled in a timely way to ensure synergistic and speedy central sortation and pallet transhipment.” Said David Brown,
“In the same way that an airport handles flights UPN give member trunks “slots” to smooth flow our central sortation operation for the benefit of all of us.”
A “SmartHUB IT” App monitors and manages all trunks with GPS Tracking of inbound and outbound journeys, In-App Digital manifests, and In-App “On site Guidelines”. The app also receives “call in” notification to indicate when on site trunks are ready to be loaded. The App will receive the outbound manifest directly to it. It will give instructions to drivers, calling them in to be loaded, automatically log site arrivals, exit of site and more.
