SAP YL standard covers many requirements to digitize yard processes and enable customers for mobile scenarios. The Covid-19 crisis has highlighted how important it is that a supply chain is agile, efficient and resilient at the same time. But how could this be achieved? How can you integrate these aspects in your daily logistics and even in your yard management?
With the standard SAP Dock Appointment Scheduling within SAP Yard Logistics a user can book appointments at a predefined time for every loading point in the yard. The SAP Dock Appointment Scheduling of a yard is always connected to a docking location, which has one or several loading points symbolizing the doors in the yard. To establish close collaboration with carriers and other business partners, the Westernacher slot management and carrier web portal for Yard Logistics gives your freight forwarder the chance to book their own time slots within a few seconds. The portal shows the specific number and opening hours of the ramps that can be booked in every single yard.
With these applications we have identified a huge potential to automate the processes in the yard and save costs. Contact our experts to discuss any further concerns or questions and let us show you how SAP YL can take your business to the next level. We can connect to other relevant SAP solutions such as TM, ERP, EM, GTT or EHS – with the standard interfaces and extended interfaces, too.
