INFORM has successfully deployed their industry proven Syncrosupply Time Slot and Yard Management system to logistics operator Migros Verteilzentrum Suhr AG (MVS) in Suhr, Switzerland as part of Migros’s broader state-of-the-art, fully automated logistics system transition.

INFORM delivered its Syncrosupply Time Slot and Yard Management system, which is comprised of a management user interface, time slot booking portal, self check-in software for gate automation real-time optimization for yard and ramp management, and the optimization of time slot bookings for various stakeholders accessing Migros’s facility.

Dr. Eva Savelsberg, SVP of INFORM’s Logistic Division said, “The gate to any logistics facility is a natural choke point between the broader transport network and the yard or distribution facility. As such, efficient and optimized operations is crucial to streamlining the movement of goods.”

The project set out to achieve various goals including efficient and reliable planning of incoming goods, improving sustainability, reducing bottlenecks and traffic jams on the MVS site, alleviating high waiting times for carriers, and avoidance of late arrivals of goods.

«The mYard has already made a name for itself during the intense Christmas phase and during the current corona crisis. Thanks to this system, we were able to utilize significantly more capacity without any major difficulties. The system also creates a good basis for future optimizations, in which we can also rely on the good cooperation with INFORM.” – Thomas Gasser, Head of Logistics at MVS
