SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Price Chopper here has chosen the Retalix Yard Management application from Dallas-based Retalix to synchronize yard and dock activities at the company’s distribution centers.
The system is designed to automate the yard and dock management process through predictive logic and optimization algorithms, coordinating yard and dock activity with distribution center demand. In concert with the system, RFID readers are being installed at the entry and exit points of the company’s distribution centers, and all of its fleet will be affixed with an RFID tag, automating the processing of arrival and departure information.
“The solution will help us quickly locate equipment, personnel and products anywhere in our yard, and will greatly reduce trailer wait times – all of which means higher supply chain visibility, efficiency and productivity,” said Dave Schmitz, director of distribution for Price Chopper, in a statement.
