The dock and yard management system is a solution which is used for eradicating usual & costly logistics concerns. It provides an essential part of critical supply chain execution (SCE) set of applications. The dock and yard system is based on using tracking data to view movement of persons and any other objects, for instance merchandise, helping operators generate models that help on their decision making. The systems precisely simplify the complexity of dock and yard operations for instance loading dock visibility, warehouse management systems (WMS), transportation management systems (TMS), and live & staged trailer coordination. The system provides facilities with augmented visibility & productivity in their yard, loading dock, with warehouse. The systems also utilizes the physical data & real-time to specially manage & dock yard operations.
Some of the important features include improved gate throughput, email alerts, appointment tracking, improved load sequencing, yard inventory report and trailer check-in & check-out. Some of the other associated benefits include visual platforms, detention or demur rage charges, dock door savings, elite support & training, trailer spotting cost, operational savings, easy to navigate and drag & drop technology.
