Make Yard Management More Efficient and Profitable with SAP Yard Logistics

On November 20, as part of our transportation & logistics platform, we have launched the first release of SAP Yard Logistics. Yard Logistics enable companies to connect to activity in the yard, on the docks, and at the gates – improving the flow of goods in and out of the facility. It gives companies visibility to the whole process from the time goods arrived in the yard to the time they were unloaded.

SAP Yard Logistics is based on the SAP HANA / Legacy Database and is integrated with the SAP Transportation Management (SAP TM) and SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) applications for a logistics fulfillment platform. The solution helps prioritize shipment arrivals, identify trailer contents, manage yard jockey activity, standardize yard processes, reduce the time needed to allocate vehicles to loads, and avoid unnecessary vehicle movements. Our SAP solution supports mobile users and is integrated with charge calculation and settlement in SAP TM. A graphical layout enables monitoring, visualization of the yard’s actual situation.  By an easy to use desktop and mobile UI the business user is supported in deciding and taking immediate actions known as “see and act “.
