CONTROL AND VISIBILITY … BY THE YARD
The efficiency of your warehouse starts already in the yard. With numerous trucks coming in and out every day, things can easily become a bit chaotic. With Astro WMS® Yard Management you get full visibility and control of every move in the entire yard. At the gates, in the parking spots, and by the docks. From planning to monitoring and analysis. Because why let the power of Astro WMS® stay only inside the warehouse?
WHY INVEST IN YARD AND DOCK MANAGEMENT?
Today more and more companies invest in advanced systems to optimize their warehouse operations. But what happens in the yard outside is too often overlooked. To close the gap between warehouse processes and transportation operations a yard management system is a good investment, especially when shorter transportation lead times and increasing transportation costs put pressure on your business.
Long trailer wait time, unproductive yard staff, poor dock planning, and inefficient moving of goods are all consequences of lack of control over yard operations. Not only does that cost valuable time and money, but also leads to irritated drivers and deteriorated relationships with carriers.
Using a yard management system (YMS) to gain control over your yard operations have a number of potential benefits, such as:
- Increased visibility and accuracy in yard processes
- Possibility of automation
- Improvement of check-in and check-out
- Reduction of detention and demurrage expenses
- Better use of labor
- Possibility of carrier analysis
