Bill of Lading

bar Datalogic Memor20

We developed an electronic Bill of Lading (BOL) that is accessible on mobile data collectors to help clients that ship / transport valuable items from one location, for example, a warehouse to another.

The transportation of the items may involve third party trucks, thus introducing potential complexity in case of an investigation into missing or damaged items. Some clients require Bill of Lading in order to obtain insurance for the shipment.

The Bill of Lading is an essential tool to capture the fact that the intended items were loaded by a designated person on a specific truck driven by a driver whos name and signature are recorded as well. It goes without saying that the originating warehouse, the destination, as well as the date and time of loading are also captured.

At the intended destination, the Bill of Lading enables a receiver to verify whether all the items listed on the BOL were delivered and unloaded. All the receiver needs to do in order to bring the BOL on screen of a mobile data collector, is to scan the first item that comes off the truck. This will immediately display the BOL information on the screen of the mobile data collector with a listing for all items in the truck. The mobile data collector will display item by item progress as the unloading process progresses.

When all the items are unloaded, the receiver signs electronically and closes the BOL. The mobile data collector will alert the receiver if any of the shipped items are unaccounted for or, an unexpected item, that was not listed on the BOL, was unloaded.

In other words, our BOL implementation accounts for possible human errors that may occur in the process of shipping. It is designed for real life, for use by human beings, that sometimes make real mistakes. It will work with them, help them, point out the potential errors, and suggest the best resolution.

A warehouse supervisor is able to follow the loading/unloading process closely by referring to a report where all BOL information is reflected.

If your business might benefit from the Bill of Lading, we would be very happy to discuss your needs, and provide assistance.
