FREMONT, CA: Lazer Spot, the biggest supplier of essential outsourced yard management services, recently announced a collaboration with PINC, a digital yard management solution provider, to introduce enterprise exposure and organizational excellence to facilities across North America.

Trailer yards play a crucial role as expansions of warehouses at distribution centers and manufacturing plants and as a tool to expedite shipments, promote corporate sustainability targets, and minimize transportation costs, given the complexities with consumer requirements and demands, unpredictable freight space, and ever-changing directives from governments and public health authorities.

Established in 1996, Lazer Spot offers yard spotting, shuttling, leasing of trailers, and specialized yard services in North America at 400+ locations. Digital yard management solutions from PINC will enable Lazer Spots teams to boost operational performance while offering its enterprise customers a unique level of security, visibility, and services. Additionally, through the PINC program, supply chain and transport executives will have access to business analytics and efficiency reports through their distribution yards.

“We are truly excited about this partnership,” said Eric Breen, Vice President of Business Development at PINC. “Combining Lazer Spots network of reliable yard management services with PINCs yard automated orchestration engine and enterprise visibility capabilities will enable Lazer Spot to continue delivering on outstanding customer service and shippers to safely improve operational efficiency, reduce accessorial charges, and manage carrier contracts and transportation budgets from an enterprise perspective more effectively.” 

“One of our top priorities is to continue our investment in innovation to support our customers operations and to create a safer environment for our team members,” said Adam Newsome, CEO of Lazer Spot. “Part of that effort is to enhance our partner relationships with tech companies that can help us add more value and grow our services offering to our enterprise level customers. When we combine our spotting services with PINC digital yard management solutions, we can give our customers a package that truly makes their yard and transportation operations as efficient and productive as possible.”
