PINC Solutions has created a new generation of its Yard Hound Product Suite, a real-time location system (RTLS) for yard management. The software utilizes passive radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies to track the location and status of trailers, trace the movement of yard trucks, and provide live information for all yard activities via an intuitive, Web-based application. Modular components produce automated electronic documentation of all traffic leaving and entering the yard, provide real-time location data for trailers and yard trucks, allow for visual communication of task assignments to yard truck drivers, and enable remote temperature and fuel-level monitoring of refrigerated trailers. PINC also offers the option of a hosted service, with round-the-clock technical support. Additional features of Yard Hound include automated customs alerts and performance reports. The product can be installed as a standalone yard-management system, or as part of a corporate network incorporating warehouse and transportation-management software.
