Yard Management System: Increases Visibility, Eliminates Manual Labor/Documentation, Improves Ops Control

Challenge: Our customer deployed Yard Hound at their Southern California trans-load facility.

Solution & Results: According to the study, the logistics company saw the system double gate throughput, and significantly increase yard visibility. It has also eliminated manual yard checks and most documentation, while providing improved operational control. Administrative effort has been reduced by one third, leading to lower headcount requirements. And since the drivers spend less time waiting, they can spend more time driving and waste less fuel. Another important fact was that improved data accuracy and communications have enabled fact-based decision-making and issue resolution. Our customer is also reviewing opportunities to move towards a multi-enterprise system, providing a platform for collaborative supply chain practices.
