Truck Loading Cycle Time Study

Case Studies

Truck Loading Cycle Time Study

One of the largest US steel producers for maritime, rail and other industries around the world had trouble contracting a steady supply of trucks to transport their steel coils to customers. Why? Because the steel producer had long turnaround times. In a competitive market, trucking companies prefer steel producers with short turnaround times to maximize their use of trucks.

Company leaders attributed the problem to loading capacity and slow in and out gate times. However, in a Truck Loading Cycle Time Study, expert analysts from Implementation Engineers (IE) uncovered other reasons for the delays. Their results stemmed from:

  • Quantitative data analysis
  • Focus interviews with key personnel
  • Interviews with truck drivers and their teams

Read this case study to find out how observations and data analysis provided by IE proved key in presenting an unbiased view of truck loading operations and helped to align operations and logistics to solve the steel producers’ challenges.
