A Live is a situation in which the equipment operator stays with the trailer or boxcar while it is being loaded or unloaded. This allows for real-time communication between the driver and the loading/unloading crew and helps to ensure a smooth, coordinated operation.

  • The term “live” can also refer to other types of logistics operations where real-time communication and coordination are critical, such as live warehousing and live shipping.
  • In these cases, staying “live” means having a direct connection to the relevant information and resources at all times, so that you can make decisions and take actions as needed.

Being “live” is an important part of being a successful logistics professional. It’s all about being able to react quickly and effectively to changes in the environment so that you can keep your operation running smoothly and efficiently.
