All Travel Checklists

Transport managers arrange and manage the operations of transportation business. The role of the transport manager is specialised and sophisticated in an organization as this person takes responsibilities of controlling shipments, creating transportation schedules, arranging deliveries of goods, providing hired vehicle services and other. Here is a sample of transport manager’s to do list:

  • Devise and put into action transportation schedules for March
  • Track shipment status – purchase order #215
  • Arrange collection and delivery of vehicles
  • Work out new tariffs for vehicles for hire service
  • Create repair schedule for vehicles

To manage tasks concerned with shipments efficiently and to a thorough understanding of the processes in Transportation Department, the transport manager needs to use task management software.

Creating categorized task list

Organizing tasks into categories with possibility to add subcategories is the way to efficiently arrange the workflow of the transport manager. Categorized task list allows the transport manager to control all outstanding tasks in the category “Current activities” and plan to-do lists for future putting them into the category “Future activities”. Each of the categories can be divided into several subcategories. In such a way, the transport manager can create to-do list in treelike view.

Transport Manager’s Solution

Setting due dates and fighting delays

The transport manager takes responsibilities of arranging and controlling of timely collections and deliveries. Each task in to-do lists of Transportation Department staff members, especially such as shipping clerk, receiving clerk and traffic clerks, should have due date that is the deadline. For instance, the receiving clerk is responsible for the task “Check shipment for any discrepancies in quantity and price”. The checking should be completed within 2 days. So upon receiving of the shipments, the receiving clerk has two-days deadline to check all incoming goods and then to report to the transport manager. In task management software the transport manager can set due dates (the column “Due Date&Time”) for all tasks of the receiving clerk as well as for any staff member involved. To avoid task procrastinations and prevent delays, the transport manager can set up reminders for the tasks. Reminder can be sent to all assigned resource by email or they will see a pop-up message stating that an important event is not to be missed.

Keeping documents attached to tasks

Documentation in Transport Department should be well-arranged and accessible any time. The transport manager needs to keep all transport documentation under control and the employees need to easily enclose documents to their tasks. For example, it would be convenient for the shipping clerk if he could attach an invoice to the task “Prepare invoice for shipment”. Task management software allows to attach documents directly to tasks as files or links. Then the transport manager can easily access and check documents such invoice, bill of lading, road bill, price list and other.
