SAP YM          

The SAP Yard  Management solution (YM)  extends warehouse management beyond the physical walls of the warehouse, enabling management and control from the time that goods are planned to arrive at the warehouse.  SAP YM integrates with the LES components for Transportation and Shipping. Shipments and deliveries are an integral part of Yard Management, influencing location scheduling and location determination.

Shipments are updated upon completion of check-in, check-out, loading and unloading activities, while deliveries are updated by check-in and scheduling activities. In addition, shipment data, such as forwarding agent, determines the list of possible vehicles that can be assigned in YM to a specific delivery or shipment. Nevertheless, SAP YM can work independently and without a full WM implementation, as long as certain WM entities, such as doors and staging areas, are defined.

Planned cross-docking information is provided to  YM, which influences location scheduling and location determination. In addition, location scheduling is accessible from  Cross-Docking, with the availability of doors and staging areas determining the viability of cross-docking decisions.


Sap YM   enables you to manage the following yard processes:

  • Check-in and check-out of vehicles
  • Scheduling of doors and staging areas for vehicles (manually or based on the system's automatic scheduling mechanism)
  • Creation and execution of movements in the yard (manually or based on the system's location determination mechanism)
  • Creation and execution of operations in the yard, such as weighing and sealing/un-sealing of vehicles
  • Registration of the start and finish of loading and unloading of vehicles (by delivery or for whole vehicle)
