The first and last place a distribution center sees product is in the yard. But for most, the yard is a blind spot where time is wasted searching for trailers and even searching for someone to search for trailers. These delays affect warehouse productivity, impact customer satisfaction and increase costs. In fact, most shipping delays are in the yard and not on the road.
Yard Management can be deployed centrally to control many yards and gives you the visibility and control you need to simplify and accelerate all of your yard activities.
