SAP Yard Logistics – now generally available to customers
We are pleased to inform you that SAP Yard Logistics has completed the Early-Adoption-Care Phase and is now generally available for all regions.
The SAP Yard Logistics application simplifies truck, container and rail yard management. A graphical layout enables monitoring and visualization of the yard’s actual situation. SAP Yard Logistics offers visibility into inbound and outbound transports, shows alerts as well as exceptions, and supports planned and unplanned yard movements. Services and activities such as cleaning, repair or dangerous goods checks can be applied as well. Through the support of mobile users via smartphones or tablets, slow and inefficient paper-based processes can be eliminated. To also enable a closed loop business process, the built-in connection to billing enables to charge internal and external customers for all activities executed within the yard. SAP Yard Logistics offers flexible deployment options with the SAP Extended Warehouse Management application or as a stand-alone application, to help ensure the best fit with customer’s system landscape.
At the same time we launched SP1 for SAP Yard Logistics that contains additional functionality in various functional areas. You can handle inbound and outbound processes completely separate which supports more independent planning of incoming and outgoing transports. This includes enhanced possibilities of pick-up and drop-off processes as well as a functionality to create corresponding Inbound Yard Order from Outbound Yard Order and vice versa. The introduced concept of Transportation Unit control ensures the smooth linkage of orders and transportation units. Furthermore, some administrational features like reverse check-in/check-out and a report to upload transportation units to the system round off the solution.
For SP1 the participation in the Early-Adoption-Care program is possible but not mandatory.
