Yard Management Software by the Numbers:
Increase in Driver Productivity
Increase in Yard Truck Efficiency
Increase in Dock Productivity
Increase in Dock Utilization
“We needed an automated WMS system to help us solve problems with our inventory control, performance levels within our warehouses, and space utilization issues in multiple locations. Royal 4 worked with our IT team to ensure a smooth integration with our Navision ERP system.”
“We wanted to ensure a smooth transition to the new system, so we began by focusing on outgoing orders first. Once that was up and running, we tackled inventory tracking and control. System implementation took 10 months from start to finish. We had absolutely no disruption in operations.”
“Being a food manufacturer operating on lean principles with complex distribution we required a tightly integrated system that would be able to scale out to all of our locations. We are happy with our decision I am pleased to endorse this fine organization to any company looking for supply chain services.”
WISE – YMS – YARD MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
In distribution, the yard is key to the daily movement of goods – all incoming inventory and outgoing customer orders must pass through this portal to and from the warehouse. This critical link in your supply chain is a virtual outdoor extension of the warehouse – serving as outdoor storage for incoming inventory and providing the final step in order processing for all outbound shipments. Through the automation and mobility afforded by our yard management software you will see a reduction in errors and an increase in throughput – without adding staff or assets. A new level of information visibility is achieved – and the sharing of this information with your other business systems forms a bridge that enables new levels of efficiency throughout your supply chain.

What you will get with our software:
The new expanded view of the entire yard enables the implementation of two functions that can further enhance the productivity in the yard: cross docking and interleaving. The moment a shipment arrives at the guard station, dispatchers can see exactly what is in the shipment and the entire dock schedule, allowing appropriate shipments to be cross-docked to reduce shipment handling time and inventory handling cost.
IMPROVED VISIBILITY AND INTERLEAVING
Improved visibility enables very judicious movement of trailers, known as interleaving. A trailer parked at an inbound dock for unloading might be identified as the right type of trailer for an outbound load that is ready on a nearby dock. Instead of returning the trailer to the yard, the trailer can be delivered immediately to the outbound dock for loading – rather than taking an interim trip to the yard.
All the critical information dispatchers need to create the most effective dock schedules is instantly available, including: trailer type, trailer content (down to the SKU level), load type (perishable, dry or hazardous), length of time trailer can be on the lot before penalty charges are issued by the carrier, purchase order associated with the load, and any errors or exceptions to the purchase order.
