Despatching efficiency is critical in transport‐dependent operations. The article discusses the need first to define problems in an operation in terms of specific needs and then the available techniques and equipment that can be used to meet them. The solutions to specific problems of site‐handling systems, varied loads, automation, supplier selection, etc., must be co‐ordinated in an overall strategy to improve cost performance and customer service.
