When it comes to manufacturing or just distributing any large number of consumer goods, some small businesses believe all they need is a fleet of trucks and trailers to ensure their products make it where they need to be. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes in order to make sure trailers make it from the staging area to the docks then out to delivery and back in a timely, organized fashioned with all the correct assets. This complicated process is known as yard management and it’s an imperative part of any business that requires trailer movement.
