“This year’s win solidifies YMS as the #1 yard management tool in the supply chain industry.” remarked Austin Papadelis, Yard Management Solutions Server Architect and Chief Digital Marketer. “Every innovation we presented was built to overcome a customer’s challenge and solve a specific frustration in the yard.”

This year, Yard Management Solutions presented three new software features to be considered for the innovation award: Enhanced Alert Intelligence, Smart Yard “X-Ray” Vision, and Smart Yard “Shipment Optimizer.” Each innovation is designed to increase visibility in the shipping yard, lower costs, and increase awareness of potential issues before they arise. These new tools, together with Eagle View, YMS’ flagship visibility platform, provide live statuses on every action, trailer, and movement in the yard. This data is recorded by the system and displayed in reports and dashboards to enable awareness while minimizing manual data collection by employees.

“Our software is built to overcome challenges our customers face every day,” said Colin Mansfield, Yard Management Solutions Director of Sales and Marketing. “Everything is designed to provide flexibility, enhance efficiencies, and give maximum visibility to our customers, whether they run a single yard, or a multi-facility operation.”
