The white paper has been called the ultimate form of content that helps business people decide what to buy. White papers not only help shape decision making, but they do it in a persuasive way that uses facts and logic to educate readers about a solution to a problem.
For example, 4SIGHT Logistics Solution’s white paper, Doing More with Less: Yard and Dock Management from an ROI Perspective does just that. The white paper is an important analysis for anyone faced with logistics problems in the yard or at the dock, such as costly detention charges, inefficient processes and security issues.
Other yard and/or dock logistics issues include difficulty controlling expenses, outmoded communications methods, idle personnel, and high labor costs.
4SIGHT’s white paper addresses the fact that as the global supply chain continues to grow in complexity, facility managers and warehouse executives face a unique set of challenges.
While many issues and costs associated with moving materials and products might seem out of one’s control at times, working toward optimizing processes—from the gate through the yard and to the dock, as well as the warehouse itself—can in turn increase operational and logistics efficiency.
The simple answer is actually “yes”
Historically, yard and dock management has presented its own set of specific challenges that are still evident to this day in many operations. Yard and dock management has traditionally been inefficient and labor-intensive. On top of that, managing yards and loading docks has produced a fair share of asset tracking and security problems, as well as communications issues, that all impact bottom line profitability.
When faced with so many complex challenges and problems, the critical question that every warehouse executive must ask is, “Is there a way we can cost-effectively systemize our yard and dock management practices and guarantee a sound return on our investment in a short time period?” The simple answer to that question, is “yes, and often in as little time as 12-24 months.”
