Summary of Innovation

Innovation is the driving force that keeps Yard Management Solutions at the cutting edge of our industry. This means that year after year you can expect our software to continue to be current and state of the art delivering more and working harder, so you don’t have to. This year we have three game-changing innovations: Enhanced Alert Intelligence, Smart Yard “X-Ray Vision”, and Smart Yard “Shipment Optimizer”.

Enhanced Alert Intelligence watches over your operation 24/7 to protect and guard against failures. Intelligent facility monitoring systems notify management of potential problems and cost-causing issues before they arise. Screen alerts keep your team informed and on track while emails and text messages escalate critical issues to management. The YMS EAI System will reduce costs by safeguarding against detention and demurrage charges, slow turn times, unused leased equipment, missed departure/arrival times, trailer pool levels, inventory shortages, workforce inactivity and more.

Smart Yard “X-Ray Vision” removes the guesswork and puts every detail at your fingertips, which means no more opening trailer doors to search for a product. YMS delivers PO/BOL/SKU level data on the exact contents of every trailer in the yard. It’s like having a world-class WMS in your YMS. Simply type in the part number you need and YMS will highlight the trailers that have the product you are looking for.

Smart Yard “Shipment Optimizer” helps optimize the carrier selection process when calling trailers to the door. Customer-driven rules match shipments with the best available carrier based on FIFO, Preferred Carrier and Best Rate.
