Supply chains in the UK and Ireland are largely based on truck and trailer transportation, at least on a national level. This can be attributed to geographically shorter distances compared globally and the changing freight structure. Handling at transshipment points (yards) accounts for a large proportion of the total transport time. This webinar shows how process optimization and process automation can be used to reduce this time using Yard Management Software.

Join our webinar to learn how SAP Yard Logistics improves the visibility of processes in your hub and builds the foundation for a holistic improvement of your supply chain performance. Our real-world examples of digital workflows and process automation showcase possibilities for a future-proof yard.
