What is Exotrac?

Exotrac is a yard management technology company that was founded by Jon Donchey in 2005. Exotrac creates customized yard management systems for their clients in the logistics, manufacturing, food, retail, chemical, and trail leasing fields. In being that the logistics industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, it is shocking to know that 80% of them are using an outdated, inefficient paper system. This means that only 20% of the industry is using a technological solution to yard management, but there is no data on if they are using cutting edge, cloud technology. It is safe to assume the perhaps only 10-15% of the 20% are.
 On average, companies who switch to smart phone technology have seen savings in the hundred thousands in terms of the drop in their demurrage and detention costs. Because of this, smart phone technology has found a vital place in the yard.

Why Switch?

With issues such as misplaced paper work, containers that cannot be accounted for, and the increasing number of damaged items, Exotrac’s YardTrac Pro is the solution the industry has been searching for to help increase transparency throughout the yard. YardTrac Pro also allows yard managers to cut out the middle man and have access to the vital information they need anytime, anywhere.
The application is a cloud based system and can be accessed on a phone, tablet, or desktop computer. Yard managers also have access to information that verifies the time their employees spend on property, all containers and trailers at their facility, when the containers are empty, and when the carrier or drayage company picked them up. This is one of the many ways that a YMS app will increase accountability for employees and lower detention and demurrage charges - by cutting down on infrastructure and hardware needed to track containers in the yard. Exotrac truly is a turnkey solution to yard management with their cutting edge, rugged smart phone technology.

Seamless Integration with Preexisting Systems

One of the things that makes YardTrac Pro unique is its ability to seamlessly integrate with many systems by accommodating nearly any type of file transfer protocol. This effectively eliminates the visibility void in the supply chain, and enhances the ability to plan proactively. YardTrac Pro offers tons of customization options so the app can grow with a company’s needs as they change over the years.
