What You Will Learn

How are yard operations across all your facilities impacting on-time in-full delivery and transportation costs?

According to industry experts, 80% of transportation delays happen while trailers are at distribution centers or manufacturing plants’ yards.

Given the uncertainties with customer expectations and demands, unstable freight capacity, and ever-changing guidance from governments and public health authorities since the pandemic started, trailer yards play a vital role as extensions of transportation networks and warehouses.

Walter Aponte, logistics operations manager at Unilever, will share how automating yard
orchestration across the enterprise enabled the global company to improve on-time in-full deliveries, build stronger relationships with carriers, and reduce transportation costs during one of the most challenging years of this century.
