Atlanta, Georgia, February 1st, 2023 — ColdPoint Logistics, a leading cold storage company, has successfully overcome operational challenges by implementing Yard Management Solutions (YMS). Prior to YMS, manual yard management procedures led to delays, inefficiencies, and increased costs.

3. Revenue Growth: Precise container storage monitoring allowed for accurate billing, contributing to revenue growth.
4. Fuel Efficiency: YMS optimized yard driver movements, reducing fuel consumption and contributing to cost savings.
5. Swift Dock Door Access: Wait times at the dock doors have been drastically minimized. Dock personnel no longer endure lengthy delays while yard drivers search for trailers or struggle to locate the correct dock.
6. 90% Improvement In Locating Trailers: YMS reduced misplaced trailers from 15-20 per day to just 2-3.
