For businesses with Distribution Centers (DC) or warehouse operations, Yard Management software can deliver improved efficiencies.
The movement of trailers can be complex and a time consuming process, involving a wide range of personnel – from receipt, to gate guards and trailer jockeys.
Any errors or loss of data throughout the lifecycle of a trailer can lead to delivery delays, penalties and even theft.
Descartes’ Yard Management software allows you to not only plan and record all trailer moves, inspections and security seal changes, but to maintain an audit trail for loss prevention and security of assets and goods. Trailers and their contents can also be tracked accross multiple locations.
Specifically designed to help operators more effectively manage the movement of trailers, the Descartes’ Yard Management tool is an add-on package to Descartes’ Dock Appointment Scheduling software.
