What you'll need to know about yard management.

The yard is an area of the supply chain where the transition from producing and packaging to transporting goods from a warehouse, distribution center or manufacturing facility to its desired selling location occurs. It is where the inbound and outbound processing of goods in a business’s supply chain network takes place. 

A yard management system (YMS) organises, oversees, tracks and manages all activities in the yard of a distribution center or warehouse. It is used to optimise, automate and support the workflow of inbound and outbound processes in the yard with capabilities that provide better planning, visibility into dock door scheduling, and tracked movement of trucks, trailers and containers in the yard.

Manhattan Active Yard Management builds upon the robust yard functionality of Manhattan Active Warehouse Management to further enhance yard efficiency in harmony with warehouse and transportation networks. It enables a unified approach to yard management across distribution, labour, transportation and yard with easier extensibility, new levels of efficiency, better user experiences and fewer manual processes.

Yard management is the process of managing and overseeing every activity that goes on in the yard. Yard logistics provides visibility and support for transportation units, including transportation planning, yard monitoring and billing, and execution.

Existing and new Manhattan Active Warehouse Management users can add Manhattan Active Yard Management at no cost, while Manhattan Active Transportation Management users can add it for an additional fee.
