Yodel Automates Sort Centers with C3 Solutions

UK parcel delivery company implements Yard Smart yard management system

MontrealAug. 23, 2012—Software solutions provider C3 SolutionsYard Smart yard management system is now used by Yodel, a parcel delivery company based in Liverpool, England, at its four key facilities. The solution was purchased from telematics and systems integration specialists Isotrak, which created a control tower system that now optimizes and manages Yodel’s fleet of over 600 LGVs and 1,500 trailers.

“C3's Yard Smart is an integral part of our control tower initiative,” said Marija Simovic, Chief Operating Officer at Yodel. “Our strategy required a best of breed yard management system and given C3's impressive track record they were the natural choice.”

With C3’s Yard Smart, Yodel is able to maximize the operational efficiency of each sort center and gain complete visibility of vehicles arriving and departing the sites in order to minimize the risk of service failures. Yard Smart ensures that all vehicles are processed as soon as they arrive at the depot, thereby minimizing the time that trailers are parked idle in the yard. In addition, Yard Smart assigns trailer moves to yard drivers that are the highest priority to the operation.

“Yodel is another example of a leading edge post & parcel company that relies on C3 to manage their yard operations,” confirmed Greg Braun, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, C3 Solutions. “C3's unique site flow approach to yard management delivers the return on investment expected by best in class operators throughout the world.”
