  • Publication number: 20200320881
    Abstract: In one example embodiment, a computer-implemented method for managing available capacity at a location for receiving an asset includes obtaining data indicative of one or more first assets that will arrive at a first location within a first transfer hub at an arrival time, the one or more first assets being associated with a first service provider. The method includes determining an available capacity at the first location within the first transfer hub for receiving the one or more first assets at the arrival time. The method includes moving one or more second assets positioned at the first location to a second location within the first transfer hub to increase the available capacity at the first location for receiving the one or more first assets at the arrival time.

  • Publication number: 20190332104
    Abstract: In one example embodiment, a computer-implemented method for coordinating the movement of assets at transfer hubs includes determining one or more assets to move from a first location associated with a transfer hub. The method also includes assigning a jockey to move the one or more assets to a second location associated with the transfer hub based at least in part on an availability of the jockey. The method further includes directing the jockey to move the one or more assets from the first location to the second location.

  • Publication number: 20190333390
    Abstract: In one example embodiment, a computer-implemented method for coordinating an arrival of an asset at a location includes identifying one or more assets arriving at a transfer hub, based at least in part on one or more attributes associated with the one or more assets. The method includes determining an arrival time for the one or more assets, based at least in part on an available capacity associated with the transfer hub for receiving the one or more assets. The method includes controlling the one or more assets to arrive at the determined arrival time.

  • Publication number: 20190095859
    Abstract: A computer system receives a freight request from a shipper, where the freight request specifies a destination for a load of the shipper. The computer system implements a selection process to select a freight operator to haul a corresponding trailer of the trailer module from a location of the shipper to a destination. The trailer module may be monitored using information transmitted from the trailer, to determine when the trailer is picked up and/or delivered at the destination.
