4Front Engineered Solutions now offers the 4Sight Yard and Dock Management System, a solution that allows facilities to monitor, schedule, and communicate trailer movements, load assignment, and loading dock status in a simple, easy-to-use interface. 4Sight provides full automation, visibility, and optimization from the time a vehicle approaches the inbound gate to the time it leaves through the outbound gate.
4Sight combines RFID, GPS, and sensor technologies to give users real-time yard and loading dock visibility, enabling them to improve trailer coordination and turn time management. The robust event-management capabilities and alert notifications also help to reduce the labor associated with moving and managing yard assets.
The software solution features a graphic interface of the yard and loading dock, providing a color-coded exact location mapping and activity display. For gate management, it offers visibility of inbound and outbound equipment. The load assignment and dock door scheduling capabilities allow managers to assign loads to specific trailers and optimize dock door usage. The solution also provides productivity and activity reports on the utilization of trailers, dock doors, equipment status, switchers, etc.
In addition, 4Sight allows facilities to schedule maintenance on their loading dock equipment based on actual usage, as opposed to traditional time-based maintenance scheduling. Dock usage information is collected and displayed, and the system automatically identifies loading docks that reach a usage threshold. Once the threshold has been reached, the system automatically sends an e-mail alert to service providers and maintenance managers.
