Mobile Alerting

Tablet workers

One of the key challenges in yard management is making sure the right people are informed when key events happen.

For example: When mechanical problems arise with refrigeration equipment temperature sensitive products are at risk of loss. The loss is almost certain if the issues go un-noticed or are not reported through the proper channels. These notifcation channels can break down due to many reasons.

  • Missed yard check
  • Failure to notify maintenance or repair mechanics
  • Ineffective reporting systems or procedures
  • Bad information
  • More...

Kar Lot has built in support for SMS text messaging, email, and even voice alerting. When a critical event happens on your yard make sure the message is heard loud and clear by choosing the Kar Lot Yard Management System.

Product Protection

Temperature Control Panel

A critical time for temperature sensetive products is during the time product is loaded and waiting to leave the shipping yard. Ensuring the product is kept within the required temperature range is crucial for the safety of the product and reduces the risk of loss.

We refer to this critical function as Product Protection. While temperature is a very important aspect of product protection there are also other important functions to consider as well.

  • Regrigeration unit fuel levels
  • Temperature trending
  • Data Logging accuracy
  • Seal check and verification
  • Exception Alerting

These are equally as important in ensuring product quality and safety. Kar Lot provides this protection "out of the box".
