Location Solutions That Put Your Yard Miles Ahead

With the constant movement of trailers, your yard is dynamic. Knowing the location and movement of assets and resources is critical to managing a safe and productive yard. Zebra MotionWorks™ Yard facilitates the continuous flow of material and goods between your transportation systems and distribution centres or manufacturing plants, increases gate transaction speed, improves switcher productivity and ensures the right trailer arrives at the right door, at the right time.

Manage All Important Assets With Real-time Insights

When you know where everything is, and its operational status, you gain strategic insights to better predict, manage and optimise your operations to better compete. Use accurate real-time data about yard resources, combined with flexible business rules, to keep equipment and product moving through your yard.

Save Time and Money

Intelligent trailer move assignments and path optimisation cut costs by reducing switcher deadhead time, resulting in more trailer moves per hour and a reduction in fuel and maintenance expense. Automatic door assignments help keep doors occupied, resulting in less downtime. Automating processes to maximise yard real estate ensures you make the best possible use of every parking space and dock door in your yard.

Visibility That Increases Throughput

Visibility to all things critical to your operation delivers deep insights to better manage your yards more efficiently. Use actionable insights to optimise operations, fine-tune yard processes and sync your staff, systems and shipments. This gives you new operational insights into your trailer inventory management and process controls. To deliver on time, every time.
