Alameda, CA – May 21, 2013 – PINC has announced that it has been selected by Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) as their advanced yard management platform for its Saltillo, Mexico production facility.
DTNA deployed PINC’s advanced yard management platform to speed production, improve inventory visibility, and reduce costs. Using GPS and passive RFID technologies integrated with an award winning yard management system, PINC provides real-time logistics controls for just-in-time delivery of parts and supplies. By automating trailer and shipment movements within the Saltillo facility, DTNA is able to improve production by eliminating inefficient inventory warehousing and movement.
At yard gates, PINC streamlines and speeds trailer activities, thus eliminating congestion. Within the facility yard, managers have full visibility and control of all inbound and outbound shipments, as well as the ability to make real-time decisions on load movements. This real-time control enables just-in-time parts delivery for assembly line manufacturing.
“An effective and efficient supply chain is a must in a highly competitive and complex environment like the vehicle manufacturing industry,” said Dr. Aleks Gollu, CTO and founder of PINC Solutions. “Visibility to timely shipment processing remains a key challenge. We are proud that Daimler Trucks North America has chosen our solution to tackle this challenge.”
