FourKites has introduced Dynamic Yard software, which gives enterprises the ability to proactively manage all of their facilities based on real-time in-transit and in-yard freight data and analytics. By connecting traditional, siloed yard management software with FourKites’ real-time supply chain data and predictive ETAs, enterprises can reduce detention and demurrage costs and optimize operations throughout their facilities company-wide.

Dynamic Yard is the result of the integration of yard, dock and gate control products acquired from TrackX with FourKites’ supply chain visibility platform. By infusing yard management software with in-transit predictive visibility and analytics, yard operations can be managed proactively—from appointment and dock scheduling to gate operations and spotter tasking. Armed with the ability to anticipate bottlenecks based on predictive ETAs, facility managers can accelerate gate-in and gate-out processes, shorten on-site time for drivers and optimize inventory across multiple sites, thereby reducing dwell times and increasing operating margins.

Product features and capabilities of FourKites’ Dynamic Yard include:

Hardware-agnostic, with seamless integration with a large variety of systems, including ERP/TMS, WMS, ELD, GPS and telematics.

Highly scalable to support a wide range of facilities, from the smallest up to multiple enterprise locations.

Multi-site visibility via a single, centralized control panel.

Deep integration with FourKites carrier products to ensure continuous communication and optimization with carrier partners.
