Press Release (ePRNews.com) - IZMIR, Turkey - Apr 21, 2017 - Litum IoT introduces a new line of RTLS solutions to make yard management more efficient and safe. The system allows companies to monitor shipment of assets, control access to a yard, and observe movement of vehicles in real time.
According to the Aberdeen Group, in 2007 up to 58% of all yard management efforts involved manual check-in/checkout and monitoring processes. Well over half of the time spent managing a yard involves entering information into the computer system by hand. A lot of this time is wasted due to normal inefficiencies or carelessness on the part of drivers.
The wrong trailer may even be taken up to the warehouse docking area and prematurely unloaded or loaded for delivery. It can take up to six hours to turn around trailers, from the moment they arrive to the moment the trailer leaves the yard.
Improving Yard Visibility for Businesses
With the installation of a Litum Real Time Location System (RTLS), businesses can track every asset within a few meters of distance and streamline processes. Passive RFID systems installed at gates assist with automated check-in, checkout procedures. While an Active RTLS makes it that much easier to track everything with just a few seconds delay in regular updates. Litum provides a passive or an active system for automated alerts if a trailer arrives or leaves early. Plus, an active system will alert yard managers if a vehicle is driven to the wrong space or is broken into by someone.
Litum’s consultants can even set up the RTLS to automatically assign drivers to parking spots when they first arrive. This system provides presence, location, and assists with management of any size yard.
Benefits Of RTLS
From improving yard efficiency to cutting back on costs, there are many reasons to choose a Litum. Litum helps companies identify which features of an RTLS will bring the biggest savings and earnings. Some of the potential benefits for businesses will include:
