Post & Parcel Centers

A smart network and hub management is essential for each postal and parcel operator and logistics provider. Agile networks with optimized distribution centers create the precondition for the right balance between service level, cost efficiency and sustainable operations. Flexible optimization software offers a distinct competitive advantage.


INFORM’s intelligent yard management system optimizes the handling of load units in post and parcel centers as well as freight forwarder and distribution centers. Through the synchronized interaction between gate, yard, and logistics center, SyncroTESS enables an efficient, transparent and optimized yard management:

  • Reduced gate times (in/out) thanks to automated (or manual) gate processes
  • Optimized yard allocation and dock assignment (load/unloading)
  • Minimized dock changing times and streamlined shunting operations
  • Improved transparency and automation: work orders are generated automatically and optimized in real-time; documentation of all yard movements.

Rail terminals can also be integrated into SyncroTESS.
