The competitiveness in finished vehicle logistics is determined by efficiency, reasonable prices and a maximum of quality. Therefore, it is important for operators of vehicle compounds to optimize their processes. An intelligent yard management system allows the efficient allocation of resources and simultaneously the compliance with service level agreements. Moreover, the system makes an easy and flexible integration with partners possible.
The optimal planning of the limited storage and technical area space at car yards improves operational efficiency and all vehicle movements. In addition, a comprehensive, flexible vehicle loading and unloading plan that can quickly adapt to unforeseen vehicle availability issues can be created by the system. The effective check-in of vehicles arriving at the car yard by road and rail is equally important. Automating these processes can save time and money for all parties as road transporters can turn around faster and thus are able to carry more loads per day.
