Yard Management and Handling Unit Management

I am configuring yard Management in ECC6.0 for a LSP business. Ecc 6.0 is standard and not LSP sepcific industry.

Requirement is :

Track the Container once unloaded at the Port with its content - This I have mapped as HU management.

Recieve the Container at the Freight Forwarder (FF) Whse and perform Check In activity. .

Ability to issue Gate Pass once vehicle arrives at the ,FF whse.

Keep track of inventory of Containers by Shipping Line.

Recieve Empty containers from Shipping line.

Know the container as to how long it has been at the FF Whse to bill the Shiping line for Storage charges of the Container.

Solution concept:

I am thinking that this will be used with HU management and Yard Management. Only doubt I have is that whether Yard Management will track my Containers or Not. The Gate Pass Issued by Yard Management is for the Vehicle and not the Container.

Any inputs will be highly appreciated

    Hi Rajendra,

    Yard management also used handling units. When you create the packaging material for the containers for the yard, use the category 'transport equipment' as opposed to "means of transport".

    Then you can assign the container to the shipment and both(shipment/container) should have the same container id no.

    By gate pass, i assume you are talking about checkin/checkout functionality of yard management.

    Hope it helps.

    • Hi Rajeevan,

      Thanks for your Reply. I have already did the same as mentioned by you. My Query was that as I am assigning a Yard to a Whse , which in turn in assigned to a Plan/Sloc. Question was do I need to make this SLOC as HU managed SLOC if I need to use the Yard Management functionality?

      Secondly , Clients requirement is to track teh Trailer as well as the Container. This I am achieving by Creating a Material as Trailer with Pack Material as "Means of Transport " and Container as " Transport equipment". I also read something about Logical HU which we assign in teh Yard Management Config. I have assigend the Trailer as the Vehicle Type here and the Logical HU = the container. Also the need is to Track reports by container Size ie 20feet, 20FeetH , 40 Feet, 40 FeetH , 45Feet and 45feetH trailer. I have configured this as packaging Material catefory as "Transport Equipment".

      Any feedback or your contact details to have a discussion will help.

      Thanks for the help.

    No you do not need to make it a HUM managed storage location.

    Do you need the tracking reports for finding how many days the container is in the yard without incurring demurrages ?

    You can try to configure the yard alerts for it. But if you specifically

    want the reports, then, defining different packaging sizes is the way

    to go for the different trailers and then creating a ZReport for it.

    Package: LXYRD, table - LYACT

    Incidentally are going to update shipment statues via Yard Mgmnt

    RF functionality ?

    • Hi Rajeevan,

      Thanks for your reply. I have a requirement for Sea Imports when the Container is loaded with goods and is kept in my warehouse. Typically the container with goods in it is at my warehouse till the consignee come to pick up the goods. I would say we need to know what is in the container , whom does the goods in the container belong to if the container is laden , also to know who is the forwarding agent from whom the container has come.

      In fact , I can create a sloc which is not HU managed and see if the container is Laden and go from VEKP table to take the reference delivery or Shipment for the HU , look up that Delievry and see its contents and report the same.

      Thanks for all your feedback on this Post.
