FourKites, a real-time supply chain visibility platform, introduced Dynamic YardSM, creating a new category of software that gives enterprises the ability to proactively manage all of their facilities based on real-time in-transit and in-yard freight data and analytics. By connecting traditional, siloed yard management software with FourKites real-time supply chain data and predictive ETAs, enterprises can significantly reduce detention and demurrage costs and optimize operations throughout their facilities company-wide.
FourKites’ yard management solution, Dynamic Yard is the result of the integration of yard, dock and gate control products acquired from TrackX, with the industry’s largest supply chain visibility platform. By infusing yard management software with in-transit predictive visibility and analytics, every aspect of yard operations can now be managed proactively, from appointment and dock scheduling to gate operations and spotter tasking. Armed with the ability to anticipate bottlenecks based on predictive ETAs, facility managers can accelerate gate-in and gate-out processes, shorten on-site time for drivers and optimize inventory across multiple sites.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer Dynamic Yard to facility managers across the globe,” said Priya Rajagopalan, Chief Product Officer at FourKites. “It is FourKites’ mission to shed light where the supply chain has historically been forced to do business in the dark. The latest testament to the power of our customer-driven innovation, Dynamic Yard extends the power of real-time freight visibility into new territory for the first time.”
