Saving just 30 minutes per day of a highway drivers time is a huge win, operators now know where their tractors are at all times avoiding drivers to search the yard.
Esher, UK (Vocus/PRWEB) February 16, 2011
C3 Solutions is pleased to announce the general availability of version 4.1 of its award winning Yard Smart product. Yard Smart is a yard management system that allows customers to dramatically improve the productivity of their yard operations and extends visibility of inventory across the enterprise.
With version 4.1, customers now have the option to manage their tractor operations. New functionality includes specialized tractor zones, a new module to record the inventory of tractors in the yard and the ability for users to apply putaway rules to tractors. Yard Smart now strategically parks tractors based on user defined business rules, in the same way that it manages trailers.
“Driver availability is a key issue in today’s transportation environment,” notes Greg Braun Vice President of Business Development at C3 Solutions, “Saving just 30 minutes per day of a highway driver's time is a huge win, with Yard Smart’s new tractor management, operators know where their tractors are at all times avoiding drivers to search the yard."
The new tractor management features are geared towards operators with a private fleet operation and trucking companies.
Version 4.1 also includes functionality that further improves Yard Smart’s data store, enhanced application monitoring tools, and it expands the integration between Yard Smart and C3’s dock scheduling system C3 Reservations.
Yard Smart version 4.1 will be on display at the Logistics Link South exhibition in Esher, UK February 16th.
