With supply chains being heavily disrupted in recent times, seamless and integrated transport processes become crucial for all parties involved in transportation. From optimized transport planning to efficient warehousing, many companies have taken measures to create resilient and automated supply chains using latest technologies.
There is one area of the supply chain execution process that is still underdeveloped for many – the yard. The yard is the bridge between transport and the warehouse in the supply chain. For shippers, the yard is the area around the warehouse, up to the public roads. Smooth handling of inbound and outbound traffic as well as visibility of trailers in the yard are common value drivers. For Logistic Service Providers, the yard is most commonly defined as the hub in their supply chain network (whether these are rail yards, container terminals or seaports). Here it is important to ensure that several modes of transport work hand in hand.
In this white paper we will look at the status quo of yards in today’s supply chains, show common pain points and showcase our optimization approaches for operations in different industries – based on our long experience in the field of yard management and process automation.
