Today's transportation and logistics operations face overwhelming challenges in the shipping yard that go way beyond manual tracking and communication methods. Companies want to be organized and efficient, not manually updating a spreadsheet. They want to proactively solve problems before they arise, not be overwhelmed by the latest fire to put out. Most of all, companies want to be confident that they have the information and tools to make the right decisions in the shipping yard. To do that they need easy-to-use software that provides complete visibility of the yard. At Yard Management Solutions we believe that modern shipping yards deserve modern software that streamlines their operations. We know it's important to deliver both visibility at a glance while also identifying long-term trends that help save money, eliminate waste, and increase productivity in the yard.
The YMS Command Center provides a centralized hub to make critical decisions and interact with data gathered from across the system. Whether you manage a team of two or two thousand, the YMS Command Center delivers visibility where you need it most. For example, track live yard capacity, view yard driver performance hour by hour. See the status of inbound and outbound appointments as your day unfolds. All widgets are interactive providing drill-down capability at the click of a button. Intuitive switches and buttons make it easy to manage yard automations. Perform in-the-moment actions and adjustments like creating an appointment on the fly. Users can quickly navigate between individual command center dashboards via tabs in YMS. Get to the route of costly issues, then solve them at a click of a button. For example, view trailers currently in detention and generate a move request to jockey drivers immediately. The Needs Attention widget intelligently gathers potential issues and provides ways to help you solve them proactively. For example, send idle yard drivers a quick message straight to their tablets. Open widgets in beautiful, large overlays to see the data in greater detail. Select alternative date ranges and the graph updates immediately. Perform efficiency tweaks in real-time. Manage jockey move priorities, edit trailer details, and reallocate moves to ensure your yard stays ahead of the curve.
Command Center dashboards are customizable on a per-user basis and offer configurable widgets which can be repositioned on the screen via drag and drop. Easily add a new widget by clicking the plus button. YMS provides a simple, yet robust, list of options to select from. Focus on the information that you care about most by hiding widgets. YMS saves your dashboard view automatically. Users can add new command center dashboards using a configured template, or they can get creative and design their own. Flexible, Intuitive, and powerful. The YMS Command Center delivers unprecedented visibility that is easy to learn and simple to use.
