Distribution management efficiency has a direct correlation to inventory optimization throughout the supply chain. Accomplishing this requires you to truly maximize inventory flow not only inside your warehouse, but also as inventory enters and leaves the yard outside.
Our yard management system (YMS) provides real-time information, intelligent work direction, and complete visibility of trucks, trailers, drivers, goods and materials—from the moment they arrive at the gate to the moment they leave your facility.
INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY AND REDUCE COST
Our powerful yard management solution is more than a tracking system.
We enable you to manage your docks to speed the flow of goods and materials into and out of your facilities. Once a trailer is checked in at the gate, the driver is directed, based on your business rules, to take the trailer to a specific yard or door location for loading/unloading. With advanced tracking and dynamic appointment scheduling capabilities, you will never lose the location of trailers or double book docks again, even if circumstances change at the last minute.

COMPLETE VISIBILITY AND TRACKING
Manage yard transactions easily with our graphical interface.
Drag-and-drop functionality converts on-screen trailer moves into RF-directed work for yard drivers. At-a-glance symbols display key information such as trailer type, status, disposition, ownership, which trailers are damaged/out of service, and demurrage time. This automates and streamlines workflows while providing you with the exact position of items in the yard, eliminating time-consuming searches for misplaced trailers.
Dynamic appointment scheduling capabilities will streamline dock assignments, helping to ensure you don’t double book docks.
INSIGHTFUL DATA AND REAL-TIME REPORTING
Make informed decisions about inventory deployment.
We provide you with a wealth of insightful data and reporting capabilities, enabling more informed decisions about inventory deployment. With a detailed audit trail, you will have the information you need on available goods and materials. You will also have the ability to identify the root causes of problems and run reports on carriers to evaluate a wide range of performance parameters such as on-time delivery and driver credentials. More importantly, integration into your warehouse management system allows you to identify inventory shortages and take advantage of cross-docking opportunities to keep shipments on schedule and customer satisfaction high.
