Yard Management System

June 1, 2023
Kaleris has enhanced its yard management system with a driver pre-check-in app and gate kiosk that together reduce wait time at the gate.

Kaleris has enhanced its yard management system (YMS) with a driver pre-check-in app and gate kiosk that together reduce wait time at the gate for higher velocity and productivity, and an Enterprise Visibility Suite, which provides a consolidated view of operations across all of an organization’s yards to better manage capacity and exceptions.

The app and kiosk are designed to help drivers navigate a yard faster and more easily while at the same time reducing costs to the facility through accelerated gate velocity.

Drivers download or access the app via the web on any mobile device and select from multiple language options to suit their preferences. After completing pre-check-in before arriving at the facility, the app sends the driver a QR code. It simultaneously pings the Kaleris YMS with advanced notice of the driver’s arrival, automating a dock door or parking spot reservation. If the driver is picking up a load, the YMS helps the warehouse prepare load staging, which reduces load time and driver detention while increasing dock turns. If the driver is delivering a shipment, the app check-in prepares warehouse managers to allocate receiving resources for faster trailer offloading. Once the driver scans their QR code at the kiosk, they are directed to the correct location in the yard and can begin engaging in two-way SMS communication with the facility for additional information or updates.

The new Enterprise Visibility Suite (EVS) provides an organization with a consolidated view of operations across all its yard sites running the Kaleris YMS. It delivers single-pane visibility into their accessorial charge management, inbound processing, and assets such as trailers, providing KPIs to support exception management to generate the best outcomes across the network. Corporate and on-site teams are empowered to proactively work together to address areas that require attention, such as better management of network yard capacity or validating trailer pool location and size.
