We are Thought LeaderS in Yard Management

Increase added value with tailored yard management

Avoid inefficiencies through better planning on the farm

In many cases, limited resources are wasted on the yard because organizational measures are taken in an attempt to compensate for inefficient processes with a high level of manual effort. This is often accompanied by a lack of transparency as to where which resources are located and for which projects they are even suitable. One consequence is unnecessary search times, as there is no inventory overview of equipment such as trailers or containers, or there is no overview of pending tasks and priorities. This results in delays in dispatch and production. Another consequence of a lack of transparency is that there is no opportunity to make up for delays by reprioritizing critical orders.

Control all activities on site premises

Through intelligent yard management, you can achieve an efficient supply of incoming & outgoing goods with the required equipment at a smoothed utilization of on site traffic. This leads to a reduction of overcapacities due to peak loads and a reduction of fixed assets, depreciation and operating costs.

Partially automated

System-based suggestions based on templates and rule sets. The dispatcher accepts or overrides allocation proposals.

Fully automated

The allocation of transport, lifting and shunting orders is automated by a program logic that takes into account customer-specific criteria and allocates the orders efficiently on this basis.
