Transportation & Logistics Workforce Management
The world of transportation today is full of challenges. The sector employs 2.7 million employees in the UK and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days of the year. Mitrefinch workforce management solutions can help reduce costs and improve revenue.
Solutions that lead to success
The challenges faced in the transportation & logistics industry are unique; a mix of full-time, part-time employees and temporary workers across multiple skills, pay rates, and locations mean that a one-size-fits-all approach isn’t good enough. Our flexible time & attendance products and services can be used to create your most efficient workforce management system ever.
Reduce costs, increase revenue, ensure compliance from all supply chain components
By providing an accurate picture of what an employee is doing at any given time in the day, a key indicator that can help companies hit productivity goals and manage costs, and helping companies view employees as valued resources, workforce management software technology can help businesses work smarter, better, and faster in any environment.
You'll have more flexibility
Successful management of flexitime and shift work across multiple sites and pay centres is a vital, but often complicated, part of today’s transportation industry. Mitrefinch solutions are fully customisable to accommodate the working patterns and rules of your business.

Making time allocation and labour costing simple
Workforce visibility and transparency is critical to ensuring attention is focused on the right areas of the business to optimise.
Equipped with actionable insights into labour costs, workforce trends, logistics organisations can become agile in responding to market changes and challenges, forming competitive advantages and driving better overall business outcomes.
Utilising a workforce management platform that provides data on individual employees and the work being completed, including any non-productive hours, overtime, and other key metrics will lead to an overall more productive and useful workforce.
The potential impact of Brexit on UK businesses
Sadly, Brexit could also result in a loss of employees with EU nationals potentially leaving the UK. In which case your business would need to be on it to ensure you have the right people in place at the right times to keep everything running smoothly and safely, while still preserving the wellbeing of your remaining workers. Easier said than done in industries, like manufacturing, already feeling overstretched due to labour shortages.
