LeanLogistics, a global solutions provider of transportation management system applications and supply chain services, announced a new partnership with PINC Solutions, a provider of real-time location systems technology for yard visibility and management.

PINC Solutions’ Yard Hound product is designed to provide live data for all yard activities automatically and cost-effectively. Information such as trailer parking positions, yard truck locations, gate activities and the temperature of refrigerated trailers are presented in real-time through an easy-to-use graphical user interface, helping customers increase labor productivity and reduce operational costs. PINC Solutions says its seamless integration with LeanLogistics’ On-Demand TMS will provide transportation professionals with active yard visibility as part a complete supply chain solution.

“The combination of the LeanLogistics solutions with PINC’s RTLS-based asset tracking technology provides a greater understanding of the flow of products and materials for our clients,” says Chris Timmer, LeanLogistics’ senior vice president of business development and marketing. “Our partnership with PINC will result in significant return on investment for our customer base.”

LeanLogistics says access to Yard Hound, as well as LeanDex, LeanSource and Supplier Inbound Management, gives On-Demand TMS users a growing number of tools for collaborative planning and execution within its SaaS Cloud Network.

“Integrating PINC’s RTLS system with LeanLogistics’ TMS will provide customers with enhanced visibility into their supply chains, both inside and outside the distribution center,” says Thomas Colby, vice president of business development for PINC. “We are excited to partner with LeanLogistics and bring these capabilities to their clients.”
