When keeping production running is a priority, having visibility to parts and raw material supply is critical. PINC’s manufacturing yard management system (YMS) breathes new life into manufacturing by giving shippers and carriers the ability to schedule shipments and get real-time visibility into the trailer location and monitor load status. Many manufacturers store raw materials in the yard, using trailers as an extension to the warehouse. Our Advanced YMS ensures you know which products are in which trailer so you can replenish warehouse stocks at a moment’s notice by directing trailer moves to the correct doors.
Outbound shipments can be automatically matched to the appropriate trailer type and business rules direct empties to available dock doors. When yard capacity is at a premium, PINC manages the supply of available trailers by SCAC to ensure adequate supply and control.
Very quickly, PINC can pinpoint carriers that use the property for excess trailer parking. PINC coordinates information between your MES, TMS, and WMS to streamline yard operations, minimizing dwell times, demurrage charges and detention fees.
