Becoming more efficient with yard management
Targeted use of yard management to save resources
Yard management, plant logistics, and despatch automation respond to the cross-sectoral challenge: increasing the transparency and the efficiency of the entire flow of materials and goods. To this end, the time windows for delivery, supervision, and control of the delivery traffic at the receipt of goods is managed within the scope of the yard management. This includes the assignment of parking spaces in coordination with the operations required in the warehouse to take in and out of stock. The management of the gates (docks) and waiting areas for lorries (yard) plays a role, as well.
The costs resulting for yard automation always depend on the components selected. The corresponding hardware and software elements should in principle allow for branch-specific requirements. The costs are in contrast to vast savings – a result of the optimised plant-logistic processes and the saved resources going along with this. The hardware and software for yard management we are using are made at OAS to meet our quality standard. Moreover, our logistic terminals are designed for a long service life. Furthermore, the self-service terminals with their modular structure can be adapted to future tasks in a flexible manner. These features still increase the value of an investment in yard management components.
Efficient processes in your plant logistics
As an agile company, you tend to ensure that your customers will be happy with efficient processes in your logistics. Here, an optimum coordination of all logistic processes is a crucial point. Whether it is about a logistic challenge in the beverage production, wood industry, building material industry, paper industry, or food industry – we will be your specialist in yard management across industries.
In particular on the sites of producing companies or complex logistics centres, the coordination of the flows of goods on site is vitally important. With an ever increasing flow of traffic, the challenge is to configure the plant-logistic sequences to be as efficient and economical as possible.
Yard automation hardware & software from a single source
Here, the dock management is about coordinating the activities at your loading ramp: incoming goods, outgoing goods, and despatch of arriving and leaving lorries at the loading ramps. The yard management controls all activities on the premises and collects and analyses all data regarding the vehicles on site.
The hardware and software components of yard management can be adjusted specifically to the requirements in your industry. In this way, you may optimise your individual business processes whilst at the same time assuring your competitive capacity.
