The SmartYard System begins with an automated gate controlled and monitored by an off-site, 24-hour dispatch center. Not only can the dispatch team see the driver, tractor, and trailer prior to entry, but they can speak directly to the driver just like a normal guard would. Gate access is given only if the information matches what the client has approved. Moreover, everything from the gate conversations to the video images is recorded and available for the client to review online
The SmartYard System records images of all drivers, tractors, and containers that enter and leave the yard. Not only is this data useful to ensure accurate unit management, but it also streamlines damage claims; the initial difficulty of resolving a damage claim is finding out when the damage occurred. With the SmartYard System, you can see all sides of equipment as it moves through the gate, verifying if the unit entered or left the yard damaged. This helps pinpoint whether the damage occurred in your yard or out on the road.
Despite the impressive recent advancements of technology, there is still nothing that can eliminate that human touch. That is why the SmartYard System leverages human labor with technology to allow one dispatcher to monitor your whole yard in real-time. This allows not only significant costs savings, but also increases yard productivity.
