Yokohama Daikoku C-4 Terminal launches Yard Management System


Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” LINE) and Daito Corporation (Daito) have started operating a Yard Management System at the Port of Yokohama Daikoku C-4 Terminal, the first dedicated finished-vehicle terminal in Japan for “K” LINE Group November 2022.

The system manages the status of loading/unloading, vehicle information, and storage locations in the terminal. Its mapping function enables the automatic creation of storage maps, making it possible to visualize the status of vehicles more accurately and clearly at a glance. In addition, we aim for efficient yard operations by utilizing the system, such as forecasting the number of vehicles to be stored by accumulating and analyzing past data.

The system also allows for managing exported vehicles by using QR codes and can improve the accuracy and efficiency of operations by using handheld equipment, which makes it possible to see the status of vehicles quickly and accurately ascertained from anywhere. The latest information can be shared by all parties concerned through the system.

Since the start of operations in April 2022, the terminal has been working to become more environmentally friendly by converting operational vehicles used on the premises to EVs, installing solar carports, and using electricity with virtually zero CO2 emissions from renewable energy sources.

With the introduction of digital technology, the terminal will be able to respond flexibly and proactively to customer needs as a terminal with even higher added value. It will strive always to be the preferred choice of customers.
