Yard management system provides opportunities to manage and control transport, drivers’ movement and order shipping status in real time.
Main functionality of the system:
Data on the ramps work schedules can be automatically synchronized with external information systems (such as warehouse management system). Customers may book ramp time themselves, while creating transport orders through internet.
The system provides a set of reports that allow to analyse historical data – the carrier / customer reliability, order’s processing steps-terms, planned and actual timing, the load condition of ramps and zones.
Transport order processing time may be required to register a number of complementary operations (e.g., full and empty vehicles weighing), and thus the system provides the ability easily to add a list of registered transactions.
According customer needs and possibilities, it is a possibility to use a range of supplementary equipment:
Specialized screens, speakers or SMSs could be used to inform and orient drivers within the territory.
