With that amount of inbound and outbound deliveries, yard management poses a major challenge. Every single truck has to be checked, weighed and navigated through the yard. A consistent workload at the loading stations has to be ensured to avoid additional waiting times and queues in front of and on the premises.
While the progress of automation in the production and warehouse of the plant was already very advanced, digitalization on the yard was obsolete. This intelligent solution includes a time slot booking portal, which enables carriers to perform their bookings for several customers via one central platform.
In addition, SYNCROSUPPLY has several controlling functions from the yard entry to the ramp that can coordinate the entire truck flow. The software is able to calculate optimized sequences and quickly reorganize the whole process in case of unpredicted disruptions.
As an add-on, Coca-Cola HBC Austria also uses an app that supports the truck drivers and intelligently manages the yard logistics. The forklift drivers can document every single step in a lean way via the app, transmit status updates by the push of a button, and add annotations.
