PINC Yard Management System Overview

What is PINC Yard Management System?

PINC Yard Management System is a yard management solution designed to help users overcome all conventional as well as the latest yard management challenges. It helps with lengthy gate check-in processes, time-consuming yard checks, multiple moves, lack of actionable information and much more. 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 trailers, yard trucks, shuttle trucks, tractors, and drivers. PINC Yard Management System enables carriers to monitor their assets in the yards of customers and make 24/7 online gate appointments, eliminating the need for frequent calls and faxes.

PINC PINC Yard Management System’s real-time location system (RTLS) allows users to track and find yard assets in real-time with the help of passive RFID, GPS, etc on the ground or in the air. This cloud-based system provides a clear and graphical view of dock doors and shows details of yard assets. Yard managers can use dock scheduling capabilities as an inbound load planning tool. PINC YMS also provides over 100 standard reports and dashboards, including yard capacity, recent arrivals/departures, etc, which can be augmented by custom reports. It is an all-in-one solution for yard managers and trading partners.

Pioneering a new way to automate

Overall I am pleased with the experience with utilizing the PINC solution. I marked down the customer service portion, but that is more reflective of accounting issues or engineering delays. Our project manager was\is amazing. He spent the weeks leading up to the rollout on site with us and felt like a member of the staff. He follows up regularly and is the main driver behind the success of our implementation. PINC has become a named portion of our IT landscape.

Yard management usage

I thought my overall experience starts at the top. The support team at PINC is outstanding. As long as we have been with why YMS I have never experienced a bad experience but call in the Support system . They are always helpful and insightful. I’m sure there is still more to know about the system that would benefit both the support team and the customer. I welcome any opportunity to participate in brainstorming or more feedback. I have enjoyed the system and I believe it’s a great value to our customers.

PINC is very beneficial to my work area. It's very well organized and very easy to get the hang of. It's also self explanatory. When there has been issues, it's so quick to get resolved.

Yard Management or is it Warehouse Management

Content customer, improved yard moves from what we believe was 6/hour to 9/hour, on average.

Overall I am pleased with the experience with utilizing the PINC solution. I marked down the customer service portion, but that is more reflective of accounting issues or engineering delays. Our project manager was\is amazing. He spent the weeks leading up to the rollout on site with us and felt like a member of the staff. He follows up regularly and is the main driver behind the success of our implementation. PINC has become a named portion of our IT landscape.

Pros

The PINC application has made it possible to automate a process that was performed either manually or on home grown applications that were difficult to manage, weren't robust, and were prone to failure. We worked with the engineering team at PINC to develop an automated process where our sequence requirements were generated by us, transmitted to PINC, and then to our over the road carriers and yard drivers. The visibility of the containers in the application has become an integral part of our operation.

Cons

The ability to change the yard configuration or to verify receipt of data can be cumbersome. The engineering team is willing to work with us, but the team appears to be small which means you can get the feeling of being in a "take a number" situation. The turnaround time on changes can often take longer than my management expects, but we are usually asking for significant changes.

Pros

One of the top things that is really good about this system . It is right there inside the cab of the truck . Very visible for the driver driver friendly easy to read and understand. less noise to and from the customer. Easy to keep the yard updated on where assess are. Allows the drivers the opportunity to find equipment a lot faster. It also allows the crew to work better as a team.

Cons

One of the things I don’t like about the system is the drivers cannot talk back through the system to the inside supervisors. It would be nice if the driver could type a message into the system back to the leads in regards to locating or not being able to locate a trailer. This would give more clarity to the system .

PINC is very beneficial to my work area. It's very well organized and very easy to get the hang of. It's also self explanatory. When there has been issues, it's so quick to get resolved.

Pros

I like how there's so many helpful features. Everything has it's own asset. T
he Status box shows the asset state as it travels through the yard. Each time the asset completes an operation in the Inbound and Outbound content boxes, the asset state changes.
Such as :
Movement Type, such as Outbound or Inbound.
Load Status, such as Empty or Loaded.
Handling Method, such as Drop or Live.
It's a very handy tool.

Cons

Sometimes it's not updated with our other software. Doors are shown to be empty when they aren't. Program can run slow at times.
