If your yard still relies on manual processes, then lost trailers, long gate lines, multiple missed dock appointments, and frustrated drivers are likely a daily occurrence. In the 2022 Market Guide for Yard Management, Gartner® notes that “Yard operations continue to operate in a very manual and non-technology driven way” even though “companies have put considerable time and effort into optimizing their processes in the warehouse and transportation.”
A Yard Management System closes the gap between a TMS and WMS to increase your company’s yard visibility, optimize asset utilization, enhance transit flows for supplier and customers, and decrease costs. With the Kaleris YMS, gate/kiosk velocity increases, all vehicles and trailers in the yard are visible and manageable via a Real Time Location System (RTLS), and synchronized dock scheduling ensures goods flow smoothly.
The Kaleris YMS offers prebuilt integrations for all popular WMS and TMS solutions and can be implemented in as little as 12 weeks for fast time to value.
Download your complimentary copy of the Gartner Market Guide for Yard Management for insight into how the technology can help your operations. Then, take a look at our YMS Buyers Guide, a helpful starting point for bringing your yard into the future.
