Yard Move Automation Benefits Meat Producer

The Problem

This major beef and chicken producer had all the typical trailer yard issues:

  • Where are specific trailers?
  • What is the yard inventory at any given time?
  • How efficient are my yard drivers?
  • How can we avoid mistakes in the yard?
Solution Design

The capabilities of 4SIGHT Yard made it easy for us to tackle all these traditional issues. RFID identification coupled with GPS positioning allowed us to give them accurate trailer locations. By design, 4SIGHT does constant, real-time and automatic yard inventory, so there’s no need for clipboards and daily walks around your yard. And with 4SIGHT’s intuitive user interface, the yard drivers now have all their moves automatically sent to their cabs. No more radio chatter to figure out who’s got the next move! And most importantly, errors that lead to lost efficiencies and potential customer service issues have been automatically eliminated.
