Action Definition

  • During a typical Shipment delivery process, the barge captains need to perform certain manual tasks, which includes (In chronological order):
  • 1 - Travel to the container-loading seaports
  • 2 - Travel into the wharf areas within the container-loading seaports
  • 3 - Line up with other barges, waiting for their turns to dock at the wharves and load the containers onto the barges
  • 4 - Complete the container loading task, exit the wharf areas and the container-loading seaports
  • 6 - Travel to the container-unloading seaports, unload the containers at the wharves within the container-unloading seaports
  • 7 - Complete the Shipments
  • To help the dispatcher manage the tasks of the barge captains in the most efficient way possible, we provide the Actions feature in Abivin vRoute system. This feature allows the dispatchers to digitize the actual manual delivery tasks of the barge captains by shifting them onto the Mobile app, provide a solution to manage the works of the barge captains on the Web app in real-time, getting rid of the tedious manual paperwork. Each of the delivery tasks mentioned above will be represented by a resource called the Action Code
