  • C3 has chosen to reinvest in YMS and redefine how companies manage their yards.
  • Traditionally companies that implemented yard management solutions had large, high-volume operations.
  • Smaller operations historically could not cost justify an enterprise yard management solution.

C3 Solutions, a provider of yard management and dock scheduling solutions, has announced the availability of C3 Yard, the newest component of its software-as-a-service (SaaS) logistics optimization product suite, C3 Hub.

C3 Yard is offered in conjunction with C3’s dock appointment scheduling module, C3 Reservations. With this latest expansion, C3 Hub’s product suite now provides a single flexible solution empowering companies of all sizes to manage their entire logistics lifecycle, from planning to final execution, including fully automated communications and complete visibility for all parties.

“After sixteen years of commitment to providing enterprise yard management solutions, C3 has chosen to reinvest in YMS and redefine how companies manage their yards,” said states Nicholas Couture, president and co-founder of C3 Solutions. “We have leveraged our wealth of experience and used it to deliver a comprehensive yard management solution that is extremely flexible, highly configurable, and cost effective for all sizes of operation.’’

Traditionally companies that implemented yard management solutions had large, high-volume operations and required an enterprise level application that was integrated to all aspects of their supply chain. Smaller operations could not cost justify an enterprise YMS solution and had to settle with a stand-alone less robust systems.

“This all changes with C3 Yard,” said Couture.

C3 Yard’s main benefits include gaining visibility of trailers in and en route to the yard; increase gate throughput by streamlining driver check-in; reducing detention costs by monitoring trailer dwell time and notifying carriers as trailers become available; optimizing task assignment and the use of resources; maximizing IT by integration with other supply chain systems; and improving inventory and dock management.

C3 Yard allows users to manage their yard operations at the enterprise level. The system includes reports and dashboards on key performance indicators such as driver productivity, gate activity, trailer status, time in yard, and dock door usage, C3 Yard’s data store allows users to build their own reports.

C3 Solutions is an information technology company specialized in yard management (YMS) and dock scheduling (DSS) systems. The company is headquartered in Montreal and is privately owned.
