Carrier Logistics rolls out yard management system

Carrier Logistics Inc. (CLI), providers of freight management software for less-than-truckload (LTL) fleets, recently announced the CLI Yard Management System, a trailer inventory system designed to improve efficiency in operations for asset-based LTL trucking companies.

With the CLI Yard Management System, LTL carriers can manage the yard operations at their terminals, dispatch trailer switches to yard personnel and maintain full visibility of each trailer at that terminal’s facility. The software includes a mobile app that dispatches trailer move assignments, including dock door and yard slot locations, to yard personnel. Once a move assigned in the app is completed, the system also immediately notifies a supervisor that the trailer is available to be loaded or unloaded.

The new CLI Yard Management System is available with the company’s FACTS freight management software. It can be deployed as a stand-module integrated with FACTS as well as coupled with CLI’s Dock Management System and Dock Management Board.

Carrier Logistics FACTS is the premier solution for meeting the unique transportation and freight management needs of asset-based LTL carriers and the last mile industry. FACTS includes online customer shipping tools, dispatch and driver management, a superior rate engine, cross dock management and a full back-office suite that give transportation professionals the tools they need to operate cost-effectively while providing improved freight visibility to their customers.
