Automation for a More Efficient Yard Management Process

There are over 100,000 warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing plants in the U.S. alone. With nearly 4 million retail stores and eCommerce websites to support, their supply chain and logistics processes must be as efficient as possible.

5.5 million trailers make 500 million shipments (facility to facility or facility to store) every single year all over the country. These shipments average over 200 miles each, taking up countless hours and funds. However, 80% of that time is spent with an idle trailer, unloaded, or loaded. This is wasted time and money.

Employing technology to automate and improve the yard management process can yield enormous returns by reducing this wasted time, eliminate unnecessary costs, and expedite shipments. A digital yard management system can help your company move inventory faster throughout the entire supply chain.
