Yard Management Steers Automotive/Truck Manufacturers toward Greater Efficiency and Finished Goods Visibility


Real-time visibility of transportation assets and shipments enables real-time collaboration with vendor partners and suppliers through an online portal. It also gives companies the ability to know exactly when a shipment will arrive, and once it's checked into a manufacturing or assembly plant, the exact location of the trailer/container within the facility, which is crucial to timely delivery to the assembly lines. All of these efficiency gains feed the type of lean, just-in-time processes that automotive and truck manufactures depend on.

When you drill down the specifics there are countless ways a Yard Management System (YMS) can help a company become more efficient, including:

  • Decision-making based on real-time capacity, labor, and resource requirements
  • Accurate asset tracking enabled by automatic data capture that is date and time stamped
  • Electronic task scheduling to yard truck drivers that increases productivity
  • Scheduling inbound and outbound dock door appointments based on real time criteria
  • Performance management that provides access to KPIs on equipment and facility utilization and labor productivity
  • Electronic event monitoring for security and critical shipment arrivals 

As a subset of our YMS, PINC also offers a real-time Finished Goods tracking system that can be used to provide location information for automobiles, heavy equipment and laydown yards.

PINC ensures efficient delivery of components for our automotive manufacturing process.
