Dock Scheduling & Yard Management
Streamline the flow of trucks in, at and out of the DC and better track in-transit inventory
Descartes Dock Appointment Scheduling and Descartes Yard Management solutions integrate with Transportation Management solutions to accept tenders and book appointments, handle automatic door assignments for inbound/ outbound loads, and stage trailers according to door availability. In addition, when integrated with a route planning solution, routes can be staged according to door availability and empty trailers in the yard can be assigned to planned routes.

"We believe we will generate significant efficiency gains and cost savings by automating inefficient manual processes, moving away from disparate systems. Improving the command of our inbound and outbound transportation operations is critical for our business, and Descartes’ domain expertise and cloud-based solutions helped us plan and implement a technology deployment strategy that efficiently scaled across our distribution operations."
