Main features of VAS Yard Management

Icon Auftragsplanung
With the dispatching module iDispo as well as the modules of VAS Cloud Logistics, your customers plan their orders and trips in advance. Pre-registration means that all information about the delivery is already available in advance. This avoids bottlenecks and waiting times.
Icon Automatisierung der Werkseinfahrt
Factory entrance and exit
At the plant entrance, drivers register at self-service terminals using RFID, TAN or QR and thus obtain RFID cards to access the plant premises. Safety instructions can also be mapped here. Subsequently, the weighing of the truck takes place. With digital checklists, plant employees can control the processes. A driver app contains the digital delivery bills, loading bills and other paperwork. At the plant exit, weighing then takes place again to calculate the load.
Icon Beladung
Loading and unloading
VAS directs the driver to the correct loading or unloading terminal and initiates the automated loading process RFID or QR code. Forklifts and wheel loaders can be integrated into the process via mobile apps for vehicle operators. VAS can also map disposal and recycling processes (including eANV).
Icon Qualitätssicherung
Security and control
VAS supports numerous physical control measures such as monitoring of trucks, drivers and facilities via webcams, access control with barriers, traffic lights as well as identification via RFID or QR. VAS also offers digital security measures such as regular data backups, cyber security and optional 24/7 support.
Icon Lieferscheinerstellung
After weighing, VAS creates the delivery bill for the driver, which is digitally transferred directly to your ERP system. In VAS, dispatchers can also view other metrics and reports such as shipping statistics, KPIs, and planning reports.
Icon Integration
VAS offers interfaces to all common ERP, laboratory, archive and TMS systems, to technical equipment as well as to our central logistics workflow solution VAS Cloud Logistics. This makes VAS the central link for all logistics processes inside and outside the plant.
