WM Yard Management

This page provides information about the links for most of the FAQs in the area of WM Yard Management. yard management can help a company track the movement of trailers and provide inventory visibility with the receiving and shipping yard. A yard can be a physically enclosed area outside the warehouse where trucks and vehicles are processed, stored, or available for pick up by an external carrier. The yard can also be a virtual space where trucks and vehicles are visible only for planning purposes. In this SAP best practice we show a vehicle being checked into the yard, moved within the yard, scheduled to a dock, loaded with an outbound delivery, and checked out of the yard. These actions are accomplished using a combination of the new yard management transaction, the yard monitor, and mobile yard transactions.
