Seven Ways Yard Management Will Improve Your Business

Users can access additional tools through the Administration tab.  This is where a number of settings unique for each client can be customized.  Alerts and notifications can be set up for certain events such as dwell times and idle trailer times.  These alerts can be configured to notify specific users within the organization and can be fully customized to include specific events and out of the ordinary occurances.  This ability to alert users to specific events such as dwell times exceeding 5 days can significantly improve efficiencies and decrease detention times thus improving bottom line costs in the yard.

The yard management solution has numerous benefits for our clients. Including the ability to obtain real-time, accurate trailer visibility, reduce yard check time and labor, optimize dock doors and cross-dock activity, reduce detention charges, bottlenecks at the gate and prioritize yard tasks and movements.  Our solution also provides visibility across multiple yards, across all departments to optimize workflow through the organization.
