Efficient Yard and Terminal Operations
As challenges with inbound and outbound logistics operations continue to broaden across geographies and industries, it is important for yard operators to improve efficiencies while maintaining continuous movement of material and goods to and from distribution centers, manufacturing plants and transportation terminals..
A Yard Management System has two main roles which are visibility and communication
Today’s best systems offer visibility into basic information including the location, status, and contents of assets on the yard. They are also able to offer more detailed information including historical data, load detail down to the SKU, and accountability of who is performing tasks and when.
Communication plays a huge role in providing updates and access to key information for all necessary parties. These include the gate staff, yard drivers, dock personnel, warehouse managers, carriers and customers. A yard management solution allows groups to access the same up-to-date information in one place.
