The personnel dispatching system will schedule services to 37 drivers on a daily basis. Short-term changes will be scheduled automatically and in compliance with legal requirements. Profahr (german only) includes modules for mobile communication, payroll accounting, the management of occasional services and the creation of duty rosters. With the help of the integrated operational information and communication solution, drivers can use mobile devices to view their duty roster, register for duty, use the duty swap platform and write messages.

With the implementation of Profahr, the company is taking a major step towards digitalization and will create significantly more efficient and transparent processes.
