Kaleris Yard Management System Named Category Leader by ABI Research


(ATLANTA – February 5, 2024) – Kaleris, a leading provider of supply chain execution and visibility software, was named the overall leader in the Yard Management System Competitive Ranking by technology intelligence expert ABI Research. The research evaluated yard management software for yard operations from a variety of companies, examining the ability to automate manual tasks, deploy across different sizes and types of yards, and deliver high-quality asset tracking, reporting and analytics. Kaleris Yard Management System (YMS) was the highest-performing solution across multiple categories, earning both Top Innovator and Top Implementor rankings, which culminated in the overall leader ranking.

According to ABI Research, approximately 80% of transportation delays occur due to yard inefficiencies, and many companies still rely on manual gate keeping, documentation, and asset tracking.
