4Front Engineered Solutions will showcase its 4SIGHT Yard and Dock Management System at MODEX 2012, held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Florida on February 6-9.
4SIGHT allows facilities to monitor, schedule, and communicate trailer movements, load assignment, and loading dock status in a simple, easy-to-use interface. 4SIGHT combines RFID, GPS, and sensor technologies to provide real-time yard and loading dock visibility, full automation, and optimisation from the time a vehicle approaches the inbound gate to the time it exits the outbound gate. The event-management capabilities and alert notifications improve trailer coordination and turn time. The system also allows facilities to schedule maintenance based on actual usage. Once equipment reaches a usage threshold it automatically sends e-mail alerts to service providers and facility managers.
Other benefits of the 4SIGHT system include robust data mining and report creation, effective management of third-party drivers and reduced bottlenecks in the yard and at the loading dock. Customers who have implemented the 4SIGHT system have seen substantial reductions in labor hours, detention charges and overall operational costs.
