Cloud-based yard management software

About Yard Management Solutions

Yard Management Software is a cloud-based yard management solution which is designed to streamline yard operations by providing users with full real-time visibility into all of their shipments, trailers, yard activities, gate activities, arrivals, dock doors, drivers, spotters, appointments, carriers, and more.

With Yard Management Software, all activity is recorded, time stamped, and updated in real time to provide full visibility for users. Arriving and leaving loads can be identified and validated, and the locations of trailers and their contents can be confirmed. Custom reports provide insight into carrier performance, driver productivity, inbound and outbound schedules, yard inventory, gate activity, dock door use, time in yard, and more. Reports can be generated automatically and sent out to management via email, while live analytics enable real-time monitoring of gate personnel, dock crew and spotter performance.

Yard Management Software’s gate module generates notifications when hot loads arrive, and aims to minimize gate time with preloaded arrival information, predetermined trailer drop zones, and simplified data entry screens. The dock door module tracks dwell time for each trailer, enabling the analysis of dock crew and door performance. Customizable alerts notify users of a range of situations including detention and demurrage, damaged assets, inactive leased trailers, late arrivals, and more.


Key benefits of Yard Management Solutions

  • The drag-and-drop interface allows users to schedule appointments, request trailer movements, and log equipment at the gate by clicking and dragging items.

  • Visual representations of yard activity are designed to simplify the interpretation of complex data.

  • The graphical yard view provides users with complete visibility into trailers, shipments, drivers, spotters, gate activities, dock doors, yard activities, appointments, and carriers, with automatic time stamping, recording, and updating of all information in real time.

  • Live analytics enable comparison of spotter, dock crew, and gate personnel performance and allow users to identify any employees who may require additional training.

  • The gate module provides users with a full history of incoming and outgoing trailers, real-time alerts for arriving hot loads, predetermined trailer drop zones, preloaded arrival information, and more.

    The YMS team is top notch in the software ease of use and their customer service. The team is always available to answer any questions or concerns with a small town/ family feel to the whole experience. The Software sells itself, but the customer service and the warm "welcome to the family" customer service is why they are successful.

    Pros

    The ease of use is really important to be able to apply the software to multiple user skill levels. The tutorials and hands on training software was the biggest win for the TTI team. We were able to train all levels of users with a few training sessions built in to the YMS software. Easiest program in the world to use!

    Cons

    There is only one feature that bugs me and that is the Eagle View being to hard to read, due to the size of our yard. The bigger the yard, the smaller your yard attributes become. Not a deal breaker at all, just one piece I believe can be improved.

    Response from Yard Management Solutions

    Thank you so much for your comments. We're excited to announce that one of the many new features coming out in YMS 2.0 is the ability to zoom in and or quadrant off sections of your YMS Eagle View Screen. This new feature was designed to deliver greater at a glance visibility and is especially useful for our customers with larger yards (1000 + trailers).

    Awesome!

    Awesome!

    Pros

    Was able to mold it to what we were needing for smooth movements between warehouses, incoming/outgoing shipments, data capabilities for KPI's, and ease of operations.

    Cons

    Expanded the intention so we had to literally build what we were running, but [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] did a fantastic job of building it. WIFI doesn't hold on the tablets...but not sure that's a YMS issue or WIFI issue. We don't even use the tablets any more.
