Whether it is the ship blockage of 2021 or the current geopolitical tensions in the Red Sea, the iconic Suez Canal stands as more than just a shipping headline. It serves as a powerful reminder of the delicate nature of the global supply chain. While a single vessel or one geopolitical crisis may not bring the entire global supply chain to a standstill, they serve as an impactful caution. Each underutilized asset in your yard – every empty trailer, every idle rail car – represents untapped potential and missed opportunities for revenue in your company’s supply chain. In essence, your yard becomes your own personal Suez Canal, silently draining profitability.

But there’s good news. Just like real-time visibility helped navigate the Suez crisis, SAP Yard Logistics can illuminate your yard’s hidden potential. Imagine a system that tracks every asset, pinpoints inefficiencies, and optimizes movements with accuracy. That is the power of SAP Yard Logistics.

Beyond efficiency: Unlocking the sustainability advantage.

Do you think SAP Yard Logistics is just about saving time and money? Think again. By optimizing yard operations, you can significantly reduce unnecessary truck movements and associated emissions. Studies show that digitized yard processes can boost sustainability by up to 50%, minimizing your environmental footprint while maximizing your bottom line.

How does it work? The magic of optimization.

Imagine your yard jockey as a knight on a chessboard, tasked with moving pieces (trailers, containers) efficiently. Traditional methods leave them navigating blindly, wasting time and fuel. But with SAP Yard Logistics, they have become strategic players. Advanced algorithms guide them towards the closest moves, eliminating unnecessary back-and-forth. This intelligent pathfinding reduces travel time, fuel consumption, and emissions, creating a win-win for both your expense accounts and the planet.

Investing in your yard: The gateway to faster ROI.

Your yard might not be the Suez Canal, but its impact on your supply chain is undeniable. By investing in SAP Yard Logistics, you gain real-time visibility, optimize operations, minimize detention & demurrages, and unlock hidden sustainability benefits. What does that mean? It means that with SAP Yard Logistics, you can manage your yard with up to 30% increased efficiency and can accelerate your return on investment within 6 to 9 months. Think of it as turbocharging your supply chain and propelling your organization towards a more efficient and sustainable future.

Do not let your yard become your own silent Suez Canal. Embrace the power of your yard and unlock the full potential of your supply chain.
