Regardless of what industry you are in, common transportation challenges unite all who have to deal with the shipping processes and yard activities. There are a bunch of factors slowing down check-ins, like big trucks or mistakes in information filled in manually.
Planning issues occur due to the lack of essential data and insufficient integration between the solutions covering all yard management processes. It is time to reach a new level of
yard management and experience real-time visibility of yard processes, automatic tracking, and easy access to remote areas. All these features are joined in one solution, SAP Yard Logistics (YL).
SAP YL is a yard management system designed to facilitate truck, rail, and container yard operations. LeverX specialists point out the advantages of SAP YL in terms of multiple increases in automated actions and smooth connections to billing and transportation.
SAP YL’s functionality has been developed with the aim to mitigate all yard processing pain points. In particular, Dock Appointment Scheduling allows preventing misunderstandings in loading arrangements. The Self Check-In option gives truck drivers an opportunity to do it via the mobile app and select a language. As the SAP YL system can classify transportation units, picking the most convenient available transportation unit improves the quality of service and reduces execution time.
The power of the Internet of Things with its smart sensors and drones is responsible for tracking assets and immediate reporting, which prevents critical situations.
Mobile facilities eliminate redundant paper-based processes and allow operating the SAP YL system through various devices. Overall, if you make SAP YL a part of your software system infrastructure, all yard logistics processes will move towards a new level.
Save time and costs
SAP YL optimizes space consumption in the yard, visualizes the yard in 3D, and speeds up processing time of yard activities.
Benefit from the advanced analytics
More analytical and reporting opportunities are available as well as a centralized system for document storage, which implies consistent data management.
Enhance yard visibility
Track the activity status in real-time, be aware of the current location of assets, and avoid malfunctions.
Improve quality of service
Rich planning capabilities, mobile scenarios for task processing, and intuitive user interface contribute to achieving this goal.
Complete digitalization in the yard is provided thanks to the radio-frequency identification, drones, sensors, and mobile devices.
Form an integrated business network
You can either integrate SAP YL with SAP ERP, SAP TM, and SAP EWM or use it as a standalone solution.
