Retailers require real-time data visibility that will enhance their ability to create operational excellence through optimization of their supply chain. Exotrac’s Real Time Yard Management Solution (YMS) creates a conduit through which all of the critical supply chain elements and systems (ERP, OMS, TMS and WMS) are connected. The yard operation becomes the focal point to command and control the flow of product and the attendant data into and out of the distribution center with real-time visibility, allowing our retail clients to proactively plan, organize and optimize their supply chain. The system ensures valid real-time information that is actionable, empowering the management and control team to resolve issues and mitigate risk with immediacy.
Clients receive real-time alerts regarding critical issues potentially impacting the viability of trailers and containers at their facilities. Exotrac can help reduce detention and demurrage costs almost immediately, by tracking arrivals and departures for live loads and by notifying carriers as soon as drop loads have been emptied. Clients can immediately tell which loads are on site, where they are, and how long they’ve been there – giving them the ability to work by FIFO rules or to adapt to process the exact product they need. The result is supply chain efficiency, cost reduction and high level customer experience at an economical price
