SAP Yard Logistics
Retailers manage huge assortments of goods that in most cases consist of articles which only spend a very limited time in warehouses and stores before they are sold and refilled. Different assortments result in a high turnover in the warehouse and may also lead to the fact that trucks have to load goods at several buildings in a warehouse complex or at several doors of a single warehouse. In most cases warehouse processes need to be done under time pressure, as for example, delivery windows for fresh products in stores need to be met by the delivery driver. So, yard operations need to be effective and simplified.
