Fluensee has rolled out a new version of Fluensee Yard, a browser-based system for yard management. The newest offering features planning, management and radio frequency identification (RFID) visibility, along with an enhanced user interface and automated capability for locating transportation assets and inventory. Subscription-based alerts can be received via multiple methods. The new version also includes carrier-scheduled appointments. Yard trucks are outfitted with RFID readers and on-board computers utilizing GPS, allowing for the real-time capture of trailer-location data. Another feature uses RFID technology to support the receipt and exit of equipment in the yard, reducing check-in and check-out times. The system dynamically assigns work across all current and future jobs in the queue, via on-board terminals, to the appropriate yard trucks based on real-time yard conditions and priorities. The system provides a graphical interface to assist with building effective yard plans, enforcing rules and streamlining overall yard operations. Reporting capabilities provide a variety of management and operational reports, including number of shipments, carrier performance, dock productivity and yard utilization.
