Leading UK parcel delivery company successfully implements C3’s Yard Smart

C3 Solutions
Our strategy required a best of breed yard management system and given C3's impressive track record they were the natural choice, says Marija Simovic, COO at Yodel.

C3 Solutions is pleased to announce that Yodel, the UK’s leading parcel delivery company, has successfully completed the implementation of C3’s yard management system(Yard Smart) at its four key facilities. The solution was purchased from telematics and systems integration specialists, Isotrak, which had been commissioned to create a Control Tower System for the parcel giant. The cutting edge control tower was launched last year and now optimises and manages Yodel’s fleet of over 600 LGVs and 1,500 trailers.

With C3’s Yard Smart, Yodel is able to maximize the operational efficiency of each sort centre and gain complete visibility of vehicles arriving and departing the sites in order to minimize the risk of service failures. Yard Smart ensures that all vehicles are processed as soon as they arrive at the depot, thereby minimizing the time that trailers are parked idle in the yard. In addition Yard Smart assigns trailer moves to yard drivers that are the highest priority to the operation.

"C3's Yard Smart is an integral part of our control tower initiative," commented Marija Simovic, COO at Yodel. "Our strategy required a best of breed yard management system and given C3's impressive track record they were the natural choice."

"Yodel is another example of a leading edge post & parcel company that relies on C3 to manage their yard operations," states Greg Braun, Senior VP Sales and Marketing at C3 Solutions. "C3's unique site flow approach to yard management delivers the return on investment expected by best in class operators throughout the world."
