McCarthy’s logging operation covers most of the lower North Island. 67 trucks are used to move over 3,000 tonnes of logs per day. Log movements are planned the night before – to be ready when the drivers climb into their trucks at 5AM – and are then adjusted throughout the day as available stock and orders change. Coordinating a schedule across 67 trucks is hard, and the McCarthy operation was at breaking point.
The vWork Solution
McCarthy’s now use vWork to coordinate their schedule. Dispatchers plan and schedule log move- ments in vWork’s web application. Drivers are equipped with an iPhone running vWork, giving them their day’s schedule including details about each job. New and changed jobs come through to the phone, on the fly. Job progress is tracked on the iPhone and updates the master schedule immediately. Armed with accurate information, dispatchers can then make adjustments where needed. vWork keeps everyone on the same page.
