BERKELEY, CA, September 9, 2009 – PINC Solutions, the leader in cost-effective real-time asset visibility technology, announced today that Transfreight has implemented PINC Solutions’ Yard Hound at its Toyota-dedicated crossdocking facility and the adjacent manufacturing plant located in Woodstock, Ontario. Yard Hound added automated real-time visibility for asset tracking to an existing yard management and shunt control solution.
PINC’s innovative real-time location system utilizes passive RFID and other wireless and sensor technologies to locate and track the positions of assets in the yard in real time, ensuring the visibility information for the yard is always up-to-date.

Our system helps further streamline the yard operation by providing real-time, accurate information about all activities associated with the assets while in the yard.”
