INFORM’s YMS, SyncroTESS, enables the optimized organization of the yard and surrounding infrastructure, taking all relevant factors into account. The efficient and timely processing increases service quality while reducing costs.

Capable of working as a standalone system or within the broader IT framework, the INFORM YMS can work in conjunction with existing warehouse management systems (WMS), enterprise resources planning (ERP) systems, and transportation management systems (TMS) to increase yard efficiency. With an enterprise deployment, the benefits are realized across all yards resulting in a collective improvement.

INFORM yard management system brings efficiency to the yard but delivers value well beyond. Agile Optimization algorithms propose and execute the best value decisions across all yard processes communicating these decisions in real-time to appropriate yard resources. Different yard types have different yard resources to manage assets within the yard. Whether managing shunting vehicles or something else, the system is configurable to allow for the optimized management of yard resources.

Handheld devices receive current transport orders allowing staff to focus on the next task at hand. The real-time distribution of transport orders enables the system to improve yard resource efficiency. The software is capable of running as a manual, semi, or fully automated system. When running manually, dispatches make all asset movement decisions. A fully automated system makes decisions on routine tasks. Fully automated systems free up experienced dispatchers to resolve complex planning decisions that fall outside of these conventional processes. INFORM’s intelligent yard management system optimizes the handling of load units in post and parcel centers as well as a freight forwarder and distribution centers.
