German to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Transport / Transportation / Shipping / Transport Company Brochure
German term or phrase:Disposition (here)
Bei den Transporten unserer Marken ... sind die Lademaße der ABC-***Jumbofahrzeuge*** mit 38 Palettenstellplätzen unser großer Pluspunkt. Die moderne ***Disposition*** und enge Kommunikation mit den Fahrern ermöglich uns einen reibungslosen Ablauf im Tagesgeschäft."
From a transport company's brochure. I don't follow what exactly they're driving at with "Disposition" here. Scheduling or planning, maybe? But then where does "modern" fit in? TIA for your help.
Yes, I think "dispatching" or "dispatching system(s)" will work OK here. David's "distribution system" was pretty good as well though. Thanks to everyone who offered an idea - appreciate your help. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: The whole thing, from dispatching, knowing where your vehicles are and exactly what they are doing, where they are heading, loaded, empty etc. to enable the "Disponent" to know where there is capacity available for short-notice work.
