Truck Yard Management

Kaleris' Truck Yard Management System is the perfect solution for industrial shippers to manage logistics operations and inventory management workflows at production plants, terminals, and transload facilities. 

Kaleris Yard Management System [YMS] provides plant and terminal managers the visibility they need to control inventory movements—inbound, outbound and on-site.  Yard Management provides a single source of inventory quantity, status, and storage location from one to multiple facilities.

Key YMS Features

Yard Truck & Shuttle Management

Through an in-cab touch monitor, Kaleris facilitates two-way communication between the traffic managers and the drivers to assign, prioritize, and confirm tractor trailer move tasks. Additionally, yard managers can solve yard management challenges by monitoring the location of the yard and shuttle trucks in real-time.

Carrier Collaboration from Manufacturer to Final Destination

Carriers gain real-time visibility over assets in the customers' yards and can make gate appointments online 24/7, eliminating the need for frequent phone calls and faxes. Carriers can also perform live inventory checks, view current load status, and obtain historical records of asset activities.

Real-time Visibility

Real-time location systems (RTLS) enable users to track and locate yard assets in real-time using passive RFID, GPS, and other sensors. All the information collected is presented in an easy-to-use, cloud-based system. Automate railcar movement tracking with AEI fixed and mobile device integration.

Reports & Analytics

Kaleris' YMS provides more than 100 standard reports and dashboards including recent arrivals, departures, and yard capacity. See empties by the carrier, which can be augmented by custom reports. Reports can be exported by yard managers to Excel or scheduled to be run at predetermined times.

Seamless Integration

Kaleris' yard management software enhances the value of existing warehouse management systems (WMS), transportation management systems (TMS) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems through easy integration and the provision of real-time visibility and data via web API.

Dock Management

Provides a graphical view of dock doors, showing yard asset details and the ability to initiate moves to and from the door. Additionally, it includes Dock Scheduling capabilities, which are used as an inbound load planning tool by yard managers or trading partners.

Gate Management

The gate system can be manned or unmanned in managing inbound and outbound rail and truck shipments. This automatic process streamlines gate procedures and increases the velocity of gate check-in and check-out of yard tractor trailers, yard trucks, shuttle trucks, tractors, and drivers up to 100%.

Reefer Management

Records refrigerated trailer information including temperature, fuel level, operating status. Alerts operators to ensure regular checks are performed on all reefer trailers at a facility and all necessary and important information is recorded.

When yard capacity is at a premium, Kaleris manages the supply of available trailers to ensure an adequate supply and makes sure carriers don’t use your property for excess trailer parking.

Kaleris coordinates information between your TMS and WMS to streamline yard operations, minimizing dwell times, demurrage charges, and detention fees.
