Transportation delays don’t usually take place on the road; they most often occur when assets are in the yard of your distribution center, your warehouse, or the manufacturing plant. Yard management is a key linkage point of the supply chain where distribution center and transportation operations intersect. Efficient yard operations can have broad-based impact on the timely throughput of goods and your bottom line.
The key to understanding how to improve your yard operations is not just data, but the right data. With yard management systems becoming increasingly prevalent, choosing the technology that will give you the best insights is more important than ever.
We’ve identified nine key performance indicators (KPIs) to track in your yard that will help put you on the path to operational excellence. We break these KPIs into two categories:
Leading Indicators - predict results and can be influenced,
Lagging Indicators - show past performance
