YMS for Production
In order not to tie up financial resources in stocks, the MTS (Make To Stock) approach is more suitable for factories. Reducing delivery time to the customer can also be achieved by streamlining delivery and truck loading activities. In cases where there is no stock and production is made to order, it is very important that the delivery truck does not arrive too early at the factory in order not to increase delivery costs with unnecessary downtime. There are projects where the flow of trucks is very high, where a truck waiting to be loaded causes great disruption to the loading of other trucks.
Interaction with drivers or freight forwarders is also very important. xTrack YMS, through its partner WEB platform modules or through xTrack POD (link), brings a lot of advantages in the operation of specific workflows. Truck changes have to be reported to the YMS if it is implemented on 100% automatic functionality for the manoeuvres drivers have to perform. As in other cases, the correctness of the issued documents is also ensured by the information collected via xTrack YMS.
