Monday, July 22 from 9:30 AM to 5 PM
This one-day intensive immersion class is designed for full time schedulers, dispatchers, or managers who have been using Ecolane to actively schedule and dispatch for 6 or more months. This is not an introductory level class and will not cover the basics of reservations intake or basic scheduling functions. If you have primary job responsibility for preparing and managing and readying schedules for next day transportation, or managing the same day schedules, monitoring drivers and accommodate changes in fleet and demand, then this is the class for you. Attendees will be walked through how the Ecolane DRT system schedules and uses varying levels of configuration and violations settings to achieve scheduling results both in day before and real time. Attendees will review the steps and functions necessary to: review and improve schedules the day before service, address no-runs before and during service, and proactively manage runs for optimal results based on this knowledge of configuration and violation settings.
Cost: No charge
Equipment: Attendees must bring a laptop that has Google Earth installed and can connect to Wi-Fi. PennTRAIN has a limited number of laptops that can be loaned to attendees, though we ask that you provide your own if possible. Loaner laptops will be allocated upon registration on a first-come, first-served basis.
Parking: Parking is available in the Third St. Parking Deck located at 115 West Third St, Williamsport, PA. Validated tickets will be provided when leaving the training.
