AUTOMATED YARD MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS

The most complete and customizable yard management system.

GATE MANAGEMENT

The gate system can be manned or unmanned. This automatic process streamlines gate procedures and increases the velocity of gate check-in and check-out of yard tractor trailers, yard trucks, shuttle trucks, tractors, and drivers up to 100%.

YARD TRUCK AND SHUTTLE MANAGEMENT

Through an in-cab touch monitor, PINC facilitates two-way communication between the traffic managers and the drivers to assign, prioritize, and confirm tractor trailer move tasks. Additionally, yard managers can solve yard management challenges by monitoring the location of the yard and shuttle trucks in real-time.

REAL-TIME VISIBILITY

PINC Real-time location systems (RTLS) enable users to track and locate yard assets in real-time using passive RFID, GPS, and other sensors on the ground or automated robotics in the air. All the information collected is presented in an easy-to-use, cloud-based system.

DOCK MANAGEMENT

Provides a graphical view of dock doors, showing yard asset details and the ability to initiate moves to and from the door. Additionally, it includes Dock Scheduling capabilities, which are used as an inbound load planning tool by yard managers or trading partners.

CARRIER COLLABORATION

Our advanced yard management system enables carriers to see their assets from their point of manufacture to their final destination. Carriers gain real-time visibility over assets in the customer’s yards and can make gate appointments online 24/7, eliminating the need for frequent phone calls and faxes. Carriers can also perform live inventory checks, view current load status, and obtain historical records of asset activities.

REEFER MANAGEMENT

Records refrigerated trailer information including temperature, fuel level, operating status. Alerts operators to ensure regular checks are performed on all reefer trailers at a facility and all necessary and important information is recorded.

REPORTS & ANALYTICS

PINC’s yard management system provides more than 100 standard reports and dashboards including recent arrivals, departures, and yard capacity. See empties by the carrier, which can be augmented by custom reports. Reports can be exported by yard managers to Excel or scheduled to be run at predetermined times.

SEAMLESS INTEGRATION

PINC yard management software enhances the value of existing warehouse management systems (WMS), transportation management systems (TMS) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems through easy integration and the provision of real-time visibility and data via web API.
