As the old saying goes, forewarned is forearmed. That’s why 4Front Engineered Solutions (Booth 209) brought its new 4SIGHT yard and dock management system to Modex 2012.
4SIGHT provides operations with the information they need to monitor, schedule and communicate trailer movement, load assignments and loading dock status in an easy-to-use interface. It combines RFID, GPS and a variety of sensor technologies to provide real-time yard and loading dock visibility, automation and optimization from the time an inbound truck approaches the gate until it exits the outbound gate.
The system’s event management capabilities and alerts improve coordination and turn time while allowing a facility to maintain dock equipment based on actual usage. According to Eric Breen, sales manager, 4Front knows how dock people walk and talk and what they need, so that’s what was built into the system.
Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
