The Synchronized Distribution Supply Chain: Best Practices in Yard Management
In any distribution operation, an efficient yard is the key to the efficient movement of goods up and down the supply chain. In essence, the yard is a virtual extension of the warehouse - a portal through which all incoming and outgoing shipment must pass. Yet, most yards are still dependent on paper and pen processes. Mobile and wireless technology solutions can change that. Mobility in the yard helps increase throughput and reduce errors - without adding staff or assets. Before you know it, this improved visibility raises efficiencies throughout your supply chain.
