Synchronization of movements in the warehouse yard

To improve logistics service in warehouse yards, Yard Management System (YMS) enables effective communication between customers, logistics providers, and drivers: it automatically notifies drivers of the most relevant data, i.e., available docks and outbound goods.

The Easy WMS module validates the check-in of all vehicles that access the yard. After identifying them, it automatically assigns each vehicle a dock or parking space. In this stage, the module is responsible for managing all vehicles in the yard and supervising the status of the docks and of each parking space.

YMS also optimizes vehicle exits: it checks exit times to carry out audits, identifies goods and drivers, and prepares and prints the necessary documentation.
